The ripples truly creates a great sense of texture and depth. I like the yellow flower as it adds to a certain touch ;) Yep, this image definitely has great impact.

This pic just draws me in...from the ripples in water to the colors that swirl all thru it and the touch of the flower to pull it all together. Beautifully underrated picture shez!

This is stunning and deserves higher. The pod adds a whole new dimension in colour, texture and line, and is what makes the picture complete... "wow", not just "nice".

This is gorgeous Sheryl! Evokes a pacific island ambience for me. And I think adding that "ugly brown thing" as a makeshift canoe really made the picture. :)

It is actually the shell of a seed pod from a palm, which I used as a makeship canoe or boat, for the flower to float in.....
