Please have a look at the WS!

At first I thought of posting that one as the primary contribution, but I love the simplicity and elegance of this "Dutchman's Pipe" flower picture very much. The WS version is the more common POV that shows the interior of the flower with its colors and hair. The flowers of this rather common vine are rather small; the width in the picture corresponds to about 20 mm.

ADDED later: I can't help making reference to the great Belgian surrealist artist René Magritte, and his famous work "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" ("This is not a pipe"). See WS, again...

Hallo Ishi
The composition alone caught my eye - beautifully done. I love the delicate colour, the soft tones, and the gentle lighting - simply a beautiful capture. It's a mood-setting photograph and I could just see it in a doctor's office. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
ps. The image in the workshop is just as beautiful and a definite eye-catcher.
