    Beautiful!!! Great composition and crisp focus. Just the right amount of petal detail in my opinon to make the flower appealing and still look soft and delicate; and the black background has just a hint of green for interest. Perfection! :thumbup:

    I have never understood the difference between a flower and a weed. I plant flowers and fight to keep them alive in the Texas sun while there are better looking WEEDS growing in my pasture. Even some "Flowers" that we plant are toxic.

    White flowers are tough to shoot with part of them in the shade. Try shading the whole blossum or turning the plant into the sun and you will get even details. I use my hat sometimes.

    The definition of a weed is "any plant that grows where it is not wanted." Dandelions are beautiful but if they grow on your lawn and you don't want them there, then they're weeds. Wheat farmers consider sunflowers to be weeds but other farmers cultivate them. I've even heard that in the lumber industry there are "weed trees."
