Petals, Close & Soft

This is a close up of the petals of a bouquet on the table at a family Valentine's Day party today. Our grandchildren are still small, and excited about any occasion that brings the family together for food and laughter. It is a rather simple shot taken with a #4 close up filter attached to my 35 ~ 105 zoom lens, and the flash bounced off of the ceiling. While it is nothing too special, I just like the vibrant colours and softness of it. Here's to all the "loves" in our lives on Valentine's Day!

Your flower images are always beautiful in an almost abstract interpretation of colour and shapes.
Thanks

Wonderful colours, great contrast between flower petals. I like the vignetting.
