Very nice colors! I'd have wanted to see more of the stem in this shot, as the halting in the dead center isn't that great for the composition of a vertical shot.

Agree with Adam, excellent colours, in fact the lack of contrast actually adds to the painting-like nature of the image!

Thaanks, Adam. I'll work on that stem.
Gawan, thank you. This Sigma lens seems to have a painterly quality to it.
It is part of the wonderful character of this lens, in my opinion.
