Truly beautiful, Saly.

This one is a real masterpiece. The colours and bending forms / shapes are sweet.

I'm in two minds about the nearer stem, intersecting the coloured seeded ones.

Cheers. Thanks for sharing. The backlighting certainly has a great effect here.

Thank you mtngal and zig!

pj - I was in the same dilemma. I'm wondering if I should have moved the 2 stems in the foreground. But they also add an interesting element to the composition.

If anyone has an opinion on this, please post!
