What a charming post Patti. They are eternal aren't they. But alas, time stands still for no one so we'll have to watch for new buds in the spring. Very nice post with the golden tones as a reminder that autumn is here.

This is such a nice artistic autumn picture! Beautiful macro and composition, the colours are very good. There's a very good atmosphere in this. You can almost smell the autumn, like when you walk through the woods ;) This goes into my favs :) Good job, Patti!

I love the gold tones as well. Amazing, isn't it? Even through the ravages of time they remain beautiful in their own way. Very nicely composed Patti!..=)

Outstanding, Patti. You nailed the purpose of photography dead on the head. We make time stand still so future generations can see through our eyes. Superb work. Kudos!!!!!

What a job you did with this. You've taken "faded" flowers ready to be discarded and turned them into a beautiful work of art. The color, lighting and especially your composition on this is fabulous. Great work Patti.

I keep coming back to your image here ... I think it's about time I put a few words of appreciation down on it's page ... before I need some kind of mechanical assistance in scrolling down any further. (<--- A little joke :oP ... but, certainly a testament to your images' popularity.)

Very nice. Elegant, seems to be the operative word in my mind as I view this. Touching too, if you take your narrative into consideration.

Great detail and clarity, wonderfully composed. And you have made a convert out of this viewer for utilizing a frame quite effectively.

Caveats? None, really ... but, a suggestion ... a thought. How would you feel about changing the outside matting to black? Not sure how it would affect the overall 'feel' ... but, in my humble opinion ... I am thinking ... sophistication.

That aside ... this really is gorgeous ... and yes, good luck with this most worthy entry. :o)

I like your composition in this image. You picked just the right items to include, and you chose the surface well. The wood-grain enhances the autumnal feeling. The blurred green background gives the feeling that spring and its life is receding, as the colors of fall come to the fore. I think the depth of field could be deeper, so we could see more detail in the foreground objects while keeping the background out of focus. Good overall job here.
