A wonderful one, melanie.

I would have applied the rule of thirds to make it even better, though.

The rule of thirds is one of the basic rules of photographic composition.

"Pictures with the subject directly in the center tend to be less interesting than pictures with the subject off-center. Using the rule of thirds, imagine your picture area divided into thirds horizontally and vertically. The intersections of these lines suggest four options for the optimal placement of your subject." from http://www.neisd.net/data/staff/agen...ps/thirds.html

In some cases the main subject is placed on the vertical or horizontal lines, depending on the nature of the subject.

Have a look at some nice examples :

I have tried to apply the thirds rule in my last post , "The Red Pepper" :
