Good morning....
To say I was delighted yesterday would be an understatement...I was blown away by your response to my water lillies.
Thank you to the following 7 people for their UA's....Dave (Ugly), Jocelia, Richard (DicksPics), Jukka (Kuvailija), Robert (Bobsblues) , Jacqui (Jacquig) and lastly Marktc.
Also thank you to Ann Chown for her UA for my Agapanthus collage....much appreciated...

My last upload this year of an agapanthus, I loved the soft dreamy look I achieved with this one.
Have a nice day...
Apologies if I only voted and not commented on your image, our wifi signal is erratic in the evenings...most annoying

Oh, Wow! This is truly stunning, Colleen.
Your shallow DOF, with pin-point focussing is right on the mark.
Colour is sumptious; all in all, a cracking image to end your year's uploads.
Have a great time in Australia & a Happy Christmas.
