    My Heavenly Blue Morning Glories started blooming about a week ago. This is the first one. I desaturated the color a good bit, I though it gave it a little bit of a "glamour shot" look.

    You've almost made it into an abstract, except it's still identifiable as a flower. I really like this approach, Dan. The whole image is soft except for the piston of the flower; it's very effective. I'm not big on flower shots but you've made this one very special. Love it! :D

    Sorry I don't have anything useful to contribute, but I thought you might be interested in this flower I happened upon this weekend while on vacation: flower.

    Nice shot. :)

    Reminds me of Georgia O'Keeffe's style. I love her work.
