Beautiful shapes, lines and colors. Very well done, Patricia.

This is gorgeous, Patricia. I really love the composition. I don’t know if I’m seeing pigment sites in the flower or if it’s noise, but it does seem a bit grainy in the larger view. A great angle.

My thoughts are same as Dennis’. A little grainy toward the center in the large image. The colors and the backlighting make the image.

Patricia: Brilliant! Superb POV and DOF management. Many :+1::+1::+1::+1::+1::+1:>=))>

Very well done, Patricia! I love everything about this shot.

Gorgeous Patricia! Like other comments, I notice the grainyness and curious about that. However, it actually adds an artistic touch and really helps make this image what it is - beautiful!


beautiful lines, shading, and an unusual perspective.
Love it!

I find nothing lacking in this image. Superbly crafted and a tribute to your work.

What an awesome perspective. How do you even come up with a comp like this?
