They look like musical notes and what a tune they play. Great presentation HF. This will do good in the Orange contest if it is the winner.

No need, really, as you stated in your accompanying narrative.

Well, that and best to remove temptation from me, too. Doesn't taste like orange ... at..all. >:o|

Wonderful reflections for a calming orange image! 10/10 in the VB just now.

So if I vote on your image you're likely to receive a 10/10. Why? Because every capture of life around us or artificial generation of color and lines is unique and special.______________ READ MY CAEDES HEATED POST HERE WITH A PRAETOR

It's not often that I enjoy a B/W and color version equally. This is an exception. Such intense color and details. Thank you for sharing both.

And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

So stunning, I didn't realize what I was looking at at first, but now see the plants silhouetted on the rippling water. Beautiful orange contender.

Please, even if you don't visit my gallery, check out my "Faves".I've left them intact since day "1", and would like it if every image there got the attention they deserved.

Stunning capture, Mary! I love the tranquil qualities this image offers, from the warm colours and undisturbed waters, to the rings around the base of each stem. The silhouettes and their reflections appear to be dancing amongst each other to the brilliant glow of colours! Excellent work!

And congratulations on your win! :)
