Fresh peas, a very deep purple calla lily, my favorite orange background, and a macro lens out on the deck in the shade between gusts of wind.

Levels, sharpening, cloning out hot pixels and real-life dust on the flower, resize.

Betsy,

Loved the colors in this photo and I gave it a 7. I agree with thomaspeople in that I would have like to have seen a couple of more peas in the image. That FA 100 macro lens looks like a keeper for sure.

Great shot and excellent colors. I wonder if maybe the crop should have moved the peas a little more into it. Not to the center of course, I'd just like to see the rest of that big one on the top right.

To me, this is beautiful and elegant. The subject seems to be the curve and my eye follows the curve from left to right, then the amazing wood followed by our star, the peas. This is so thoughtfully done, you must have considered showing more wood -- but the strong burnt orange seems,on my screen, to vacilate between background and foreground. eight

very nice colors. I like how the edge of the black moves your eyes through the picture.

If you call a picture "Untitled", you shouldn't give it a title in brackets, makes no sense. background color doesn't really match, wish there was more of call and peas visible.
