Nice one Dulcie - you can really feel the slickness of the leaves!

I really like how this captures the 'potential' beauty of the "coming attraction." The blossoms are on the way; outlined in the in the skeletal form - that shall soon produce some flowers.

Sharp Clarity of new Buds V.S. the Softness of Bloom, ready to touch one's heart.
This is a beautiful contrast of the two complement each other!

I have a photinia in my yard and after seeing this magnificent bush though your lens I have deeper appreciation of its beauty.
