Lovely composition, Anita! It's a little tight in the frame at the top & bottom IMO but I'm beginning to understand that's your artistic version and I think it works well for you!

5***** and even more, Anita, this one is so beautiful, I really love it! Thank you so much for your reply, I was a bit short of time the last days, so I couldn't answer, but I'm sure I will try this method of blending... and if it will work I will show you my first result... :)

Wish you a wonderful day, Anita...

Nice angle of the stem across the frame. I also love the yellow center surrounded by the pink petals.

This photograph is absolutely beautiful....There’s something about getting out in nature with the challenge of capturing some of the amazing beauty around us.
Over the past year, I have found myself in the freezing cold, (I'm from Canada) braving snowfalls, and sliding over the ice in winter, then attacked by mosquitoes and black flies in summer, all in the hopes of capturing a glimpse of nature's beauty with my camera...
