This has become my new floral favorite - there is something so simple, so painterly about this image. As if caught in the middle of "Loves me, Loves me not..." Really unusual and effective framing with the flower pushing the edges of the frame.

Love the extra character of the missing petals . . you are at your best with this signature presentation. As I was already away from base, our current posting was worked in Elements 10 rather than the full PS and it all seemed very smooth.

@Ronnie 2¢: Hi, Ronnie. Many thanks for your always thoughtful comments. :-) I have been using Elements 10 for the past year (prior to that I used Photoshop 7), and have been most happy with it. I decided to mention it in my post to let people know they can use a much less expensive program--1/10th the cost of CS--and get excellent results. There are some minor differences that one must get used to, but now that Elements has masks, I find it completely satisfactory. Glad you found it useful.
