yes, those are branches in the background. If it weren't basic editing I'd have cloned and smoothed it out (I did for the print version).

I thought about cutting them down, but I was afraid all the environmentalists would give me a 1.

*edit - since Blue and yellow make green, winning the blue in the Yellow challenge would mean fourth place right? RED and yellow make orange...i don't even know what place that would be. So really, yellow is the only yellow. so I win. ha ha ha...I WIN I WIN! :D

just kiddin. :P

*EDIT AGAIN - dammit can anybody tell me what freakin' place orange is?

Nice Composition and lighting. I think the background could benefit from some light neat image, however.

I agree...not magical at all. I was merely going for adequate :)

I love the composition and DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2004 11:04:35 PM
Nice. Love the composition. The dark streaks in the background are a bit distracting to me (presumably some off in the distance that is way beyond the DOF)... with a more even background this shot would be just about perfect. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2004 08:46:14 PM
Now talk about composition here you got it all in this shot. Simple, yet powerful! Full mark here!

12/12/2004 03:48:04 AM
this is pretty cool, there seems to be a few dark marks in the back ground, which take away alot of the simplicity and cleaness of the shot.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2004 01:38:53 PM
this one keeps drawing me back due to its sheer simplicity, i think. love the pale shades contrasting with the yellow--and love the sunlight on the petals. and of course love the snow since i rarely get it anymore. ;) very nice work. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2004 11:49:26 AM
Interesting lines and I love the brilliant color on th eflower. Perhaps a little over sharpened, the snow almost doesn't look real. 9.
