You're really a multi talented, versatile lady NanaB!

Please play this piano piece on my.....whichever comes first!
An enigmatic soft capture which reminded me of my unpublished shot hike I was still in Bohol island taking care of my landscape project...

Dramatically soft rendition with Subtle illumination...

Diagonal framing conveys a poetry in motion...
Dark verdant, out-of-focus foliage lends a visually soothing backdrop...

Nice perspective & narrow DOF.

Thanks for sharing...

Oh, your image is so fabulous and rich soft purples that gives us just right amount of sharpness. Image does force us to reflect on memories before times of our, your reality as your beautiful historical lyrics slide us into along the way. For me it was 1945 so remember 78's wrapped in brown paper sleeves and playing them on a old victrola. For me your image reminds me of vocalist Sarah Vaughan, Broken Hearted Melody my favorite of all time. pop hits. Middle 50's so that would make me 10 or so. At such a early age maybe not being loved tho new latter they did just couldn't show it. Music does refresh our memories and truly believe the key to memory loss and it's final victory. I love your image and your journey. Thanks so much for sharing.

Comment from Neilnap773

This is gorgeous. The deep purple hues of this bloom are truly stunning against the diffused backdrop that the foliage offers us and assists in the enhancement of this main central focus , the flower itself.

Comment from Trajan

Nice purple image with a soft blur background.
I appreciate the composition and diagonal movement of the shot.
The little wee bright spot on the one petal draws the viewer's gaze to that point and then outward again.
Great narrative story as well.
Good job.

    It is an acronym for "Rolling on floor laughing!" :D I always have to google these acronyms when I receive one from my grandkids. This is their way of communicating these days...such as LOL and BFF.. :D

Comment from cleo85

I do not know the music, but this close up surely is a perfect illustration of the lyrics. In spite of well defined details, the capture has a very intriguing softness. The shades of blue and purple look beautiful on the green shades of the background. I think the tight framing is perfect. I appreciate the informative comments. They enable me to look up the music.

    Dear Cleo...Thank you. You have made my evening...completely. I do hope you look on youtube for the piano composition of Deep Purple. It is as dramatic as this photo. I wish my hands could still play it as I did so many years ago. Thank you my friend.

    My Pleasure. :o)
    I will look in a music store, because I want the music in print, so I can read the musical notes. :o)

    I am not sure you will find it in a it is quite old. They would have to order it for you. You could view in online and possibly print it . I will search as well. :D
reply by cleo85 on 04-Oct-2017
    Thank You, I looked them up online already. I will go to the library, our I might find it at the used book stores. I need usually many photos if I have to paint after them. I like much more to paint after nature outdoors.
reply by cleo85 on 04-Oct-2017
    I will look for the music on line, but still will look into the public library for the music and for photos of the plant.
Comment from Solway Lady

Wonderful color good luck in the competition. The tight crop works really well, and I like the soft lighting with the detail on the flower only grates a good feel to it.
