I took a close-up shot of my zinnia flower which had opened and started to grow petals.

This is just stunning Dinu! I am constantly amazed by your banners but I think this one is my very favorite so far. I would love to see the world through your eyes. At least I can do so every once in a while by seeing your banners. Thank you for your view of the world.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Honestly, I am stunned by the appreciation, leaving me not knowing how to thank you all for this!
Here is the full picture and the cropped part. Notice the little change the banner editors made to this image?
I've discovered that cropping the image also plays a part to the appeal the banner. Many of the pictures were never taken with the intention of putting as banners. I also must give credit to the camera lens, built in, Leica! Panasonic FZ8, now I can't believe this is 9 years old!!
This picture was taken in August 2014, when these Zinnias were in full health, which later got afflicted with mildew [following rains] and became ugly in October.
