I missed this one, I like the second for the delicacy still present though it is aging, but I love the first one for the wonderful light and depth. I think the flower on the right perhaps needs to be subdued just a little more - too prominent for me, but regardless, you captured magic in that image. I really like the dark ground and the smooth way it interacts with the light giving it wonderful depth.

I wish I could find some dogwood now. My dogwood forest was destroyed a few weeks ago at the same time much of the swamp and about 12 square miles of old forest were wiped out by the strongest straightline windstorm we have ever experienced. It looks like an atomic bomb went off in that area.

You're right about that flower on the right, it is a little too OOF to withstand this treatment, needs subduing.
