Perfect, Colleen.
I love the way the dof separates the subject flower from the herd.
Great stuff.

I really a hundred times like it and if you'd have said you would have a 'neon-ish' inner border I'd have said it won't work!

Delighted to say it firmly has. Lovely.

Oh my God! How beautiful it is, Colleen!Smile

Striking colour Colleen and as usual, well presented.

Lanzarotti was brilliant, but sadly no millionaires, however, there were one or two very nice young waiters, whose English was not so good, so I taught them a few basics which included................ More red wine, fill the jug to the top, whoopsie, plus a few phrases that I did not fully explain to them, they could get in to a lot of trouble.

So glad I popped in to check out your portfolio, Colleen...what a beaut this is! Can't believe the colour. And you couldn't really ask for a more perfect background colour-wise and abstract pattern-wise, could you?

Great shot Smile
