This is a last minute entry. Couldn't pass up the late day sunlight after the rain today. Had another shot in earlier; a macro piece. Kind of liked this better. See how it goes. :-)

Wow! I am really disappointed that this didn't get a score more worthy of its artistry! It is beautiful, and it reminds me of a canvas painting. I LOVE IT!

8 - Beautiful image and nice composition and processing. I like that you've 'illustrated' how a flower garden is a balanced and composed 'frame' in and of itself (if that makes sense). Of course, your title, which of course is personal, adds another dimension to this too (good one) - as somebody planned, created & composed this 'scene' - and worked with 'nature' in harmony to bring it to full potential - which it certainly looks like it is. I think you captured 'all that' well. I even like the OOF fore as well, ok maybe a little more included at the bottom for a little more palette balance, but minor.

This is gorgeous. And it has such a warm, inviting, gentle feel to it. Truly a gift and one that can be appreciated every day.

The very dramatic composition loses a bit the essence of the flowers.
