this is just so beautiful Cindy! Delightful to view... Almost painterly.. Viewed large, it takes on another dimension.
Make your life spectacular!

An absolute wall hanger! My only nit is that I wish the left side was a bit brighter to match the rest of the flower. Vignette?

Hi Joe

Yes- intentional vignette-I see your point though.

Cindy, it's just beautiful, and I prefer the vignetting as is. In fact, the vignetting was the first thing that caught my attention. The blossoms, of course, are the star of the show, and I love the painterly appearance you achieved with them. Gorgeous image!!! :D

Another vote for your vignette, I love the way the blooms are nestled back to back and lighter towards the centre, they seem to glow.  This is just beautiful, Cindy, with a quality like the old masters paintings.  I can smell that magical scent that only peonies have.  One for me to drool over!!  :P
