To Ray - a comment ...
In reply to Prstl2, May 30, 2012

Ray ! excellent work.. i have a little comment... the flower on the right - the long petal has huge waves, and the left petal to it is sharpo as a tack, did the wave end abruptly? i would make the rounded petal als oeither a little wave, just as you have on the left flower or make the right flower long petal less wavy for a more natural look..... BE WELL !

Beautiful Ray but it's way too politically motivated. Why do you keep posting work that's going to bring the flamers.

To me, the Smudging is Superb on the top 2 flowers.

Now the reflections look odd, not natural. I cant put my finger on it, exactly, as to why that is so. It might be that the water does not look like water at all, looks too perfect, the water. It also could be that the angle of the reflected flower on the lower right may have to be further back at an angle, to look more natural ?

It is hard to make a good water reflection anyhow, and to make it look real is not easy.
Anyway, that is just me. Others may not even notice these things.
