Hi Christan,

A standout flower image .. The contrast of color and texture between layers is tremendous .. the way the sizes play with my sense of scale and perspective is wonderful.

take care,

Many thanks for your kind words on Endangered species.

Yes it's well assembled! Have the feeling to see flowers dancing and they have theyre queen all around they dance like little girls in the school backyard! I enjoy the flower over the frame too. It's a good touch!

Now...this is really something, I like your setting, pp work is fantastic, colours is matching, very nice and warm presentation, excellent work my dear, plus the unique framing, lovely! Thanks for sharing


If ever there was a wow factor shot ... this is it.

Beautiful. Sharpness, colour, DOF and POV and even that frame is fine with me. :)
