Consider the lillies how they grow: They toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

I don't understand the title, and don't own a bible, but the flower is nice. I like the way the white petal contrasts agains the green background. The composition is a little boring though.

Consider how the lilies grow. Awesome ! I might have cropped a little tighter... leaving out the cement and the burned leaf. Great shot though ! God is the ultimate artist ... -9-

"Consider the lilies, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."

Interesting verse to go with your flower photo :) So Solomon is no match for the beauty of the lily... :)

I think you have made a nice likeness here... I think the angle of this photo could improve the impact quite a bit... Nice work and nice verse :) - setzler

Very good perspective shot from above, the color combination is very fitting. The flower has a soft feel to it.The main subject is a little too centered.

I think I would have liked this picture better if the flower was not centrally located and I am somewhat bothered by the half leaf to the right. Lighting could be better also. The flower is slightly overexposed and the leaves to the left are underexposed.

Great subject, but cropping a bit more might remove some of the distracting components such as rotted and torn leaves and stone block. These tend to take away from the beauty of your well found subject. Good exposure and white balance are some very strong points to this image.

a ittle faster shutter might tone down the light a little and help give more detail.. right now the white is a little washed out..

I think I might have pulled off that ragged leaf to the right of the flower. And maybe a little level adjustment to pull out some pizazz in the flower and cropped out the rock. Just my $.02 worth.

My only suggestion would be to crop out the cement on the bottom left. The white looks so soft in the lighting. Very nice :)
