I'm loving your experiments and inventiveness....
This is a handsome, dramatic border....I think it's color, however, 'appears' a little stronger than the flower, and the flower then becomes diminished.
Have you tried giving the flower a bit deeper tone?

@Dulcie: Dulcie: Thank you for sharing your opinion and for encouraging my experimentation. I agree with your assessment.
First of all, this is another nice Cyclamen portrait. I like borders and even such a big border may work. It may work in case when subject in a photo is big or interesting enough to grab viewers attention and keep it. Here the thin brown border grabs the attention and takes it to the photo but the subject in there is quite small and of the colours very similar to the background and also the border so it can't keep my attention for longer time. I think that if the flower would have been shot in vertical composition the blossom would have taken more place and such a big border might have worked better.

@Tomas Turecek: Tomas: Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments. I agree with them. When will we see new flower images from you?
This has to be one of my favorites of the cyclamen series. So very delicate. Very fitting of the flower.

@Larry Lefever: Thank you so much. Now that I look at the image after more than a week, I don't fully like the different whites. Will have to play with it some more.
Very beautiful realization, good framing, splendid, cheer!

@theys: Thank you.
This is extremely brave and quite an adventure. I can see you have made a whole host of difficult decisions in presenting this in such a novel way. The choice of the stem-color for the inner line is so cool.
