Well you are right this is a snapshot.
I shot it with a Canon 800is hand held in 2007 at the Navy Pier Flower shop / show whatever in Chicago.
Your version is cool, but the snap was the way the flower looked to the casual passer by.
Thanks for your opinion and the shop job. My original, to me looks a little washed out, yours looks a little too cooked to me.
I'm just a snpshot guy I guess.
To each his own
