daylilies that happened to bloom in time for the challenge in my garden. they only bloom for a day (hence the name). combined with a water-filled vase balanced precariously on two CD shelves and a couple of games plus a sheet of white cardboard. i know it's yet another flower shot but i enjoy taking them...

This a good run on fine art. I love the way the flower looks like an etched painting.

thank you all for your nice comments. i've now posted my outtakes. (//www.langpage.com/dpchallenge). i'd be interested in what you think of my other version of these flowers that i was considering submitting. i've also posted a picture of my 'setup' just for kicks. what did surprise me with this one is that no one commented on the dark shade in the vase and hardly anyone commented on the reflections. you are all too kind :)

Excellent shot, the color and effect of the tube of water are shown flawlessly here.

I can't say much about this photo other than it's my favorite entry this week. There are a lot of good entries this week but this one catches my eye the best and makes me look the longest. The subtle reflections in the glass add a nice element IMHO. The pure white background does a nice job of setting the flower into the foreground of the image... great shot! = 10 - jmsetzler

Nice use of curved glass. Small nit: the reflections in the center of the glass.

Pretty flowers, but the reflections are a little distracting.
