The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

I haven't seen such a beauty of a macro to a flower for a while now... This is trully amazing, love the color & the exceptional clarity & the very nice blur effect on the ledges, giving the shot a special feeling... Superb work. Thx a lot 4 sharing.

Beauty is no quality in things themselves. It exists merely in the mind which contemplates them, and each mind perceives a different beauty.

Such perfectly rounded leaves and the variegated color is so delicate that you really have to look for it to see it. The only complaint I have about it is that bit of cloth in the background. But really I didn't see it until I had been staring at the pic for quite a my personal faves..lovely job.

Sooo... you got fed up with your mother in law, and desided to search the room for objects to shoot, good thinking !! at least it gets you away from all the nagging.
If you hide your head behind a camera, at least people stop to start serious discussions hey ! :-) At least, we man do understand eachother hahaha

PS please don't let Sabine read this reply otherwise i am in BIG trouble 8~0

Oh about the image, it is a 10/10 score in my book, well done.

I stopped in this morning and just had time to grab this image for my DT. Had to come back and tell you how much I've enjoyed it all day. The softness of the petals, the beautiful natural light... superb! Prettiest begonia in my personal flower collection. Thanks, Chris!
