This flower is a wonderful find, Gigi. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a lily with more beautiful curves. Combined with your mastery of light, you’ve created a stunning image.

Simply awesome. Wonderful in every way. Perfect,

I love this. The curving swirls are exceptionally elegant and the diaphanous luminosity in the petals gives the image an almost other worldly effect. Gorgeous.

Simply breathtaking!

Beautiful, graceful image with great gesture. I am impressed by how well you were able to separate a white flower from a white background. It works very well.


Really gorgeous image! Love the background and the flow of the lily. My one nit is that I’d prefer the leaf either be fully pictured, or not exist.

Gigi: Just a superbly crafted image in every way. Awesome shot. :+1::+1:>=))>

Elegant and very stylistic. Be careful–you are getting close to your “perfect picture!”:smile:
