  2. Absolutely beautifull. The toning is perfect. And there is een certain “smoothness” in the picture. In Dutch “Top”

  3. Mike, for lack of a better word, this is amazing! Your macros are absolutely top-notch. Looking at this image, I feel like an insect with a ringside seat in the center of this camelia. Really nice work…again.

  8. Just gorgeous. I really like how just a bit of the flower petal is showing – it makes me want to identify the camellia, which I know – is not the point!

  10. This is really gorgeous Mike. It would make a lovely print for a bedroom or other quiet area of the home. It’s very sensual, too, though I’m not sure why. Love it!
