Judges Comment

The dynamic of the stem, coming into this picture diagonal, makes this image one of the top photos in this composition. This is quite a striking photo, and also the green and orange color work well.

Photographers Comment

Whoa! First of all I love this photography contest. My name is Jade Wood and I am , like all the rest that were honored with the Mark of Excellence, also very honored. My camera and I are good friends, an Canon EOS Rebel xsi, we go everywhere together. We live in Hendersonville, NC, not far from the Blue Ridge Mountain range. I took this photo at Newfound Gap on the road to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. It stood out amonst a field of daisies. It was the odd one in the group, showing it's backside and not waving with the rest of the field. Congratulations to the winner and all those receiving the Mark of Excellence. A Big Thank You to the Judges.
