    Sharon, you have a unique talent for evoking thoughtful emotions with your images and for me, this one is one of your best.

    Just you steady on there. Not sure that Ainster's ready for 'tingles'!

    That is a superb piece of work. Is it the best thing you've put up onto the forum? Probably, in my opinion. It's one of those that induce an intake of breath when you open it up and see it for the first time.

    Can I just share with you how happy I am.

    This shot got me my first 'Explore' on flickr...and my account has had nearly 1000 views today as a result

    ...am flabbergasted.


    I know you all got your first explore when you were two but nfor me this is a big deal.

    Beautiful shot can't think of anything at all that would improve it - apart from hanging it on my wall.

    Blu tac - the photographers friend. Just hope that Manfrotto don't start making it or it's gonna get pricey !

    Don't think I've ever had an 'Explore'. How do you know when you get one?

    That is exactly what it did to me just now!!

    It is a wonderful image of the rose, and the background is superb.

    I have to agree. This is lovely. Congratulations on explore! I currently have 18 (and have had 19) in explore but I've never had 1000 hits in a day, nor anywhere close. Great job. Be proud.

    Sharon, I don't always respond to the threads, but your flower
    pics are generally the first thing I look for when I visit the forum.
    Very special images...each and every one.

    Would love to see this one on canvas with nice matting and frame!

    After looking at this, I'm getting sooooo discouraged with my PP skills, I'm ready to throw in the towel!

    And the second time, the third time, the fourth time...

    How did I miss this image?

    Sharon: Is there a specific reason you left or placed the rectangular reflection on the shoulder of the bottle? It's hard to imagine that anything would improve this image, yet I would prefer not to see the reflection.
