Award Shortlist   


By mikewatson
I was searching my garden for inspiration and saw this Clematis plant. This is a cropped portion of the original and edited in Photoshop CS2 to give a soft focus edging. I like the pollen scattered all over the stamens and is original flower dust.
I had to tripod mount the camera to avoid obvious camera shake at this magnification.
Any critical views welcome please.
