MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Beautiful closeup . Very nice treatment . If you do not mind I would liquify the upper right corner and down left one and have a full frame of red ;)

@MARIANA: Say, that's a good idea. I'll try that. I will lose some definition of the shape of the flower, but maybe the 'all red' frame will be more interesting. Thanks, Mariana.

Marvellous and wonderful. The soft red tone is just so perfect here. (I think Mariana had a point there, but I should have just darkened those parts.)
