Nice Jan, love the color combo.
Given the subject matter, my inner critic is smacking me around for not having more space around the plant.
I recently rediscovered this photograph and a couple of others from the same period, when I was looking for calm and pleasant pictures to hang on the wall of father's room in the nursing home. Both he and my mother liked it a lot, and so did the staff; mother got a large (60 cm x 80 cm) canvas print after father's funeral.
I'm glad to see that other, less emotionally involved people see the same positive qualities that I did.
I originally intended to request critiques for this and other images from the same scenery in the autumn of 2005, but I was a bit bummed out when I discovered that Michael R. had accidentally published an image
similar to one of my favourites, which I called [a href=\'index.php?showtopic=33800\']"Leaves On Water"[/a], while I was on vacation in Asia.
