  9. Nicely done Anthony. I had a flower/leaves shot ready for this week but changed my mind at the last minute. Happy New Year.

  10. The clarity of the little buds at the top waiting for their time to open is quite wonderful, Anthony. And I do appreciate the depth of field even on the blooms that are more open. The final effect might have been enhanced with a bit more black in it, say a branch or something like that. Just to cover a bit more of the grey scale for a monochrome shot.

    But the other aspects (clarity and DoF) are spot on.

    Health & happiness to you for twenty ten.
