This lady was selling vibrantly coloured crafted wooden flowers at a Sunday market in a small town. I know the light was harsh - midday Australia - but I like the picture and so here it is.

This was one of my favorites; such a lovely candid shot. Love the soft affect.

Cool street shot (I'm assuming). The bright colors of the flowers seem to overpower the foreground, in my opinion. And there appears to be some haloing.
