One of if not THE best...great marriage between flower and textures. Just the right choice I think. This one is simultaneously simple, rich, subtle and sophisticated....in my humble opinion.

Ahh, back to the textured background. I love it. I like the placement in the frame but am still wondering if you tried this with flower moved a bit down and to the right so the flower would be leaning into the frame more rather than leaning out? Just curious.

@Ed Vatza: I know exactly what you mean about the flower leaning out instead of in. I remember thinking that when I took the photo, and deciding to do it this way--but now don't remember why. Maybe I'm just stuborn.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

the texture really adds to this otherwise gorgeous shot..... Nice work!!!! and i think it looks great, leaning just as it is..... although, it would be interesting to see with Ed's suggestion......
