Rich colors and a great arrangement of flower clusters in the frame.

Exquisite details KK. Nice to see the old 1.8 D can still cut it too... (although that's really down to the skill of the author)...
Make your life spectacular!

Gorgeous color! Lovely detail- an unusual and charming plant/flower. I like how this photo draws you into the center of the main blossom.
