Gazebo

"Brian this is a totally different view of this gazebo. It never occurred to me to slow down my shutter speed when taking a picture of it. It really brings out just how pretty this gazebo is at night. I really like the way the line in the pathway…"

One Flower-1-64

"This is my second favorite. The dark dof showcases the flower. The curvature of some of the petals adds extra interest. I think a tad more luminosity would have really made this flower pop. I also like the way you captured the pollen on the petals.…"

One Flower-1-22

"My favorite. Shallow DOF, color, composition, textured, is just right on this image. What I especially like is all of the droplets on the hairy stem. Did you spray it or is this dew from early morning. Spec"s Paul spec's. "

One Flower-1-78

"The floating flower. Very nice composition. I see a slight halo around the flower and something sticking out the right side of a petal. The depth of field is so great on all of your flower images."
