No question, it's definitely a chrysanthemum. With a subtle sepia cast.

Gorgeous sepia-fied photo of a chrysanthemum. You are so talented with macro shots Robin!

Now I'm off to check out your Ruby Tuesday (running late again).

Jientje said...

Very well done, and yes, it is a Chrysanthenum. I call them graveyard flowers, I don't really like them but your picture is magnificent!

So very pretty, Robin! A perfect capture for Sepia Scenes! :)

Thom said...

Very nice.

Beautiful once again!

And it's definitely lovely, too.

The ambient light ripples off each beautiful leaf. The warm glow of the sepia makes me think of Spring. This is a wonderful take!

Jew Wishes said...

How lovely in sepia! Nice light and shadows.

Mimi said...

I feel the same as Jientje, don't normally like them, but this is beautiful Robin.
Thanks for sharing it.

what a beautiful flower

awarewriter said...

Nice one Robin. I like the way you celebrate the forms and tones by cropping closely.

Jennifer said...

Oh my goodness, Robin. This may be my favorite one as of yet. But I shouldn't say that; it is hard to choose just one.

Dianne said...

wow! you're brilliant at this
I was chuckling to myself as the page opened, I remember you saying you didn't think your macros, your flower shots were all that good

they're flawless!!

I feel as if I could step into the flower

wow! again Robin

Jenn said...

Lovely! I can feel the softness of the petals.

moneythoughts said...

I'm speechless. As a photo it is nice. As a large oil painting the size of a wall, it would be something to stand before.

Tammy said...

I just love the softness of this photo! Nice job.

Lucy said...

And photos of them are so beautiful. Each petal is different yet so alike. Don't ya' love nature!

Kate Coveny Hood said...

This is beautiful. And it should definitely go in your shop!

Nancy Bea said...

I missed this?? How??

This is ... I wish I knew a word that was sufficient to convey just how stunning this is. I'm sure there is one. So what ever that word is, this is that.
