If practice makes perfect and nobody is perfect, then why practice?

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Cornelius - When I saw the title, I thought is was to be a photo of Aunt Orchid and Uncle Bud, who were visiting from Amsterdam. But, I was wrong! lol Razor sharp clarity, outstanding lighting and color make this a beautiful photo. Kudos! Thad

The light skimming the petal surfaces reveals their texture beautifully. The blending of warm white and cool white in the petals is also a gentle and appealing contrast. The photo is a true work of art.

My friend you stepped outside your comfort zone from the landscapes and hit it right out of the park. One of the best flower shots I have ever witnessed.
