Mike from Lichfield, United Kingdom

All the colours work wonderfully together in this one. It would have been interesting to see how this would have looked with just a fraction more depth of field so that all three of the front flowers were in focus. Although having said that, I suspect that would also have put the stem in focus too which probably would have lost the photo a little of its impact. Anyway, it's still a lovely photo as it is. It's nice to have a go at other areas of photography than what you normally do, quite refreshing and you always learn something new.
