Wonderful . . this is like the flower is emerging from the background and taking shape as we look . . what a stunning effect, Anita.

A different perspective, and the texture complements this well. Same lighting and background?

This is pure beauty, Anita. The wonderful warm tones, beautiful light, great composition, well selected DOF and, last but not least, excellent work with textures this all makes this photo outstanding. I would be really proud on this photo if it was mine.

Love this! You are making me want to try textures! This color is wonderfully soft, yet luciously fallish, too!

What a lovely image. Reminds me of those subatomic particles that are constantly flashing in and out of existence. Your flower too is here and yet not here. On the mystical border................where fine art should be. Beautiful.

As if it's painted on textured linen. So softly beautiful. And - I love the soft pinks in contrast with the yellows.
