I photographed these flowers (actually weeds, I think) where they are growing behind a frosted glass structure behind the World Trade Centre in Amsterdam. I noticed the words 'Rain' on a poster in the back, and framed so that it appears as if the flowers are sending us a message to remind us to involve ourselves with the environmental issues of these times...

Wow! It makes a stunning photo. I love the way the flowers seem to pop out of the picture. Beautiful!

I like this a lot, but I'm also impressed that you used your eyes and lens to make the picture rather than photoshop

Thanks to all for the comments left. I have seen that so many photographers can create such lovely and atmospheric images of flowers - something that I have never tried. And everything was already there - it was just a matter of framing. Regards, Andre
