*** Mini-Challenge #490 *** Flower Blossoms (cropped square)

The theme of Mini-Challenge #490 is Flower blossoms, cropped square.

Anything with a blossom will work. The characteristics of the plant are far less important than the quality of the photography.

I also ask that the photo be cropped square. Why? Simply because it adds a slight wrinkle to an otherwise ordinary photo subject and because I think we tend to overlook the option of the square crop. It works well for flowers.

Mini-Challenge ends Wednesday, January 24th at 8:00pm Central Time (USA)

The general rules are the same as always...

1. Submit a maximum of 3 Entries to win and/or as many Exhibits as you wish.

2. Photos must have been taken by you but can be from any camera, including cell phones, and may have been taken at any time.

3. There are no restrictions on processing or on composite shots - all are acceptable. It's the image that counts, not how it was produced.

4. Please state in the header of your post, or in the comments bar below each image, whether they are "Entry" or "Exhibit". Non-labelled submissions will be assumed to be Exhibits.

5. Please post all images using the "Reply to thread" button below this first post.

6. At the end of this challenge, I will announce First, Second and Third places from the Entries in a separate RESULTS thread, and I may select some other submissions, entries or exhibits, for Honourable Mentions.

Grand Prize: The First Place winner becomes the host of the next challenge and has 3 days to begin it. The winner can respond to the challenge setter with a forum post or PM. If that individual doesn't respond in 3 days, or has to decline to serve, the Second Place winner becomes the next host. If that individual declines to serve, the Third Place winner becomes the next host.

7. To begin the next challenge it's easiest to cut and paste the text of this message into your new thread opener and modify it to suit your challenge.
