I think you should check your sources, and the definition of flora.

I still disagree, after checking my sources and the definition. Here's the definition of flora:

flo·ra n., pl. flo·ras or flo·rae
1. Plants considered as a group, especially the plants of a particular country, region, or time.
2. A treatise describing the plants of a region or time.
3. The bacteria and other microorganisms that normally inhabit a bodily organ or part.
(American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, via dictionary.com)

...and since Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, and Protista are the four kingdoms under the Eukaryota domain, saying fungi are plants would be like saying plants are animals.

I didn't vote on this image, and it wouldn't have affected my vote anyway because a lot of people view them as being plants. Even some scientists do group them together, but most don't and I went with the view of the majority on this one. Anyway, you already wasted 5 minutes of your life reading this 'cause I'm so damn wordy, so I'll stop here. Just thought it'd be nice to do what you asked, even if it's almost 6 months late.

edit: grammar

Mac- Great image. I like the tough look, the dark and subtle lighting. I think people need to get their monitors calibrated if they think it is too dark.

Not sure what to make of this. I expect this is meant to be a portrait that displays some of her personality. From that perspective, I think it probably accomplished the goal.

Fascinating composition. I really like this. I like the darkness - although I think it might be better just a tad lighter on her abdomen.

Comment by Teafran:
An incredible portrait that is crisp, sharp and properly framed and composed - a technical success in every way. From an artistic standpoint, it has significant impact being richly colored with excellant detail. A demonstration of the power of properly controlled light and focus. Well done.

Comment by klstover:
Really quite a stunning image. I wish that the shouders were more even and that the body jewelry were not present but other than that I think this is great. I love the lighting and the overall mood of the image, and I really like the expression.
