I love the senuous lines of the lily.

This trio of yellows really shines. I love the way you cropped the first one. Your treatment really enhances the shy beauty of the blossom. I also love the second shot. You've composed it masterfully, so there is mystery and revelation in the image. Beautiful, JM.

Amarelo, amarillo, yellow.

My favourite colour. I like the first photo so much, so glamorous, so natural, so smelling.

A delightful yellow collection. The top photo looks like a Georgia O'Keefe painting.

THREE?? You outdid us all today JM. The lily is exquisite of course and you photographed it so well. But the bar is where I'm headed. Is it warm enough for us to sit outside today???
