Your choice to offset your subject was smart too! Good colors and crisp photo.
Beauty pleases, not only the eyes, but, the heart as well. Sheila

I agree with Sheila about the offset but also the companion plants set the subject off nicely. Your photo was one of my favorite 3 and I don't even do irises (I'm a succulent person) so it was quite a feat for me to look at 163 photos of them and vote.

Thank you both!
It was a last minute addition--I spent some number of hours searching for a photo that I knew I had somewhere of iris and lupines, never found it, and settled for this one with the baptisia--glad it pleased the eyes of a few Smiling
