Even softening the borders, this is a vibrant, bright example for theme day.

Beautiful.

Great choice for the theme. The blurring of the edges really focuses the eye on the central part of the image and adds a dynamic quality to the image.

Wonderful post for Theme Day. My Theme Day post at Portland Oregon Daily Photo will be up at 5 a.m., Pacific Daylight Time, on August 1. Today's is a pretty nice tease for it, though.

Not only colorful, but sharp and nice zoom.
I admire your ability to take good, focused photos in places of business. Mine generally look like robbery suspect shots from the evening news.

Perfect for theme day. And may I add...very clever. MB

Gunn said...

A nice shot.
I like the composition and the "blur" also add some extra to it. Love the BLUE flowers too.

What a beautiful, colorful bouquet! I especially like the little blue flowers, whatever they are. (I'm hopeless with plant names, remember?)

Beautiful. Did you use a lensbaby or do it in editing? Fun!

I love the softness. It adds much to the shot. Well done.

Absolutely fantastic and really bright. Well photographed. I like mother nature's colours very much. They are unbeatable.

I wish you a colourful and successful (month of) August.

Thank you for your comment on Stuttgart Daily Photo.

Pretty subject and the spot focus makes it all the more so!

Hi Jacob,

The radial blur makes the picture very special and live!! Nicely done!! And a pleasant coincidence! Even I have posted flowers... :-)

Never boring colors of mother nature, great choice for theme day!

OOoh, pretty nice colors and effects! :-D

Wonderful photo, Jacob. I wish I knew how to do that. My photography is sort of like my tennis, pretty okay overall, but when it's a smash hit, it's just luck. LOL
