Ok, not the most elegant name! But here it is, an image I took with my macro lens last Sunday in Sunol. I do not usually post flowers, so this is a stretch for me. Lots of work in Nik and also with some of Tony K's actions.

NIKON D90 1/250 second F/6.3 ISO 250 135 mm (35mm equiv.)

What the heck, Barbara...this is awesome,,,the focus is just exquisite leaving the stem slioghtly soft and moving up the stem to the beautiful petals - how gorgeous! This is a magnificent image "what the heck" comment had to do with my amazement that youwere not sounding too confident about this shot. Hell this is an awesome shot!! I know, you wonder where some of these names come from don't you ?? But seriously this is a great great image Barbara!! I wish I could get my Barbara to sketch it!!

I totally love the detail and the soft light dancing in the blossom. Wonder how it would look w/o the stem?

What a terrible name for such a beautiful flower. You've done a great job with the processing so you just might consider post a few more macros of flowers.
