My Zinnias are all dead now due to a killing frost last week. But, I can still enjoy them in photos.

A beautiful capture of this Zinnia blossom. Its softness and pastel colors go very well together.

Wow, Anita! I don't even know what to say to this one. The focus is simply amazing - on those tiny yellow fronds - its like a yellow tropical fairy forest. There is such simplicity in the composition yet there is such depth in what you have presented. Bravo!

Excellent POV to show the detail of the yellow structures. The shallow DOF leads the eye right to the center.
