Very nice shot.

striking colours, and a nice balance between the soft organic shape of the flower and the regular symmetry of the fence.

Ah, I love the drop shots. Great execution on this one. I particularly enjoy the variety in each drop and that the middle left drop is a well centered fisheye of the flower. I hope this does well.
