Ed, Really nice details in your whites and I like the curved up stamen. I also love your crop!! Well done.

Hey Ed,
Very well done with the angle on the Hibiscus......allowed you to maximize the DOF.....because even at f32.....these are tough to get all in focus! Really nice placement of the stamen too! Very well done.

Ed, is the flower slightly yellow because of the evening light? That's my only concern - that the white looks just a bit on the "golden" side.

And I too really like this shot, and only wonder if there is a way to separate the stigmas from the white petal background, but with similar values, I think that would be tough. Cool comp making the most of the minimal amounts of color here.
