Thanks to my lovely wife for making this wonderful bouquet of flowers from various gardens around the house. Little did she know I'd use it for a photo op...well, on second thought, just about EVERYTHING is fair game around here. :P

Nice finish. I liked it but thought maybe a ton over processed, but given the challenge, it got a 7. I like the composition and colors. ;~D

I love the textures in this. Half real, half dreamy.

I like this one, perhaps a little too centered. Think it would be nice if the light was on the foreground instead of the background.

Looks like a relief painting with the flowers raised with thickened paint.

I'm not sure how the coffee mill in the background fits the scene. but I love the effect of the rest of the image.

Lovely image! Wonderful processing, almost looks like embroidery or lace work!

Lovely, except for the cloth it's sitting on, it doesn't seem to be in concert with the rest of the colors.
