  1. lot of interesting shots, but the starburst cactus is really unique and the bold color really makes it pop


  2. Love the way you’ve set up your voting!


  3. I’m glad you stopped by to vote, Fir! You know, all the shots from that first set were just fun shots for me. This small cactus had such vibrant color, I simply couldn’t pass it by. Thank you for adding your comment!


  4. Thanks, Barb. I think it was Michael Lam that told me about this Poll Daddy application. It’s really pretty easy to vote this way! I’m glad you stopped by and cast you vote for your favorite!


  5. The colour on the starburst cactus photo is amazing but it was the Western Scrub close up that most grabbed my eye as it were. The detail and the depth of field (if that’s the right term). Cool voting set-up too.


  6. I like so many of these, it was hard to pick. :/
    But i did anyhow; I really like the succulent and the white drapery. I agree with Fir, but I look at cacti all the time here (Southern Arizona is the Sonoran Desert), and I have a few shots like that one that I passed by. Cheers to you for not doing that. (:


  7. Thanks for stopping by and voting, Pete! I really appreciate your comment, too. That is the correct term, “depth of field” or even “DOF.” Although, I believe there is also a term “Bokeh” that refers to the quality of the blur caused by the depth of field. They are sometimes used interchangeably in photography. I hope you’ll stop by again, soon.


  8. It is a difficult decision, Amy! I know I look at these shots and, of course, I took them so I like most all of them! 🙂 I’m so glad you stopped by and voted. Thanks for your comment, too!


  9. Vivd, gorgeous, eye-pleasing photos here… thank you so much for sharing! I voted,for Pin Wheel, but I could just as easily voted for any and all of them. They are all absolutely breathtaking! 🙂 Heartspell


  10. Really hard decision this week – but I’m going with variegated fall leaves. I would hang that on my wall. I love the colors and I’m ready for fall to begin.


  11. Thank you for your kind comment, Heart! I’m so glad you stopped by to vote. Judging by the early results, it was a difficult choice this week! I hope you’ll stop by tomorrow to see the results.


  12. You’ve picked a nice one, Car54! Good luck. Thanks for stopping by and leaving this comment. I hope you’ll stop by tomorrow to see the winning shot!


  13. Love all the white whispy flowers and ended up voting for Soft Beauty but also loved the Autumn leaves. You do make it hard for us to choose!


  14. Hi Diane. I’m glad you stopped today. I think there were a couple of the shots that caused many people to go back and forth as to their favorite. I’m glad you landed on one that would get your vote! I hope you’ll stop by tomorrow to see the winner! Thanks!


  15. I voted for “red leaves against the bark” It reminds me a little of fall in Ohio. It was really hard to choose. I liked the blue scrub profile, too. Well, I really liked them all. They are beautiful.


  16. My vote went to Soft Beauty, there’s just something about these guys that I love! 😀


  17. thanks for voting, Dave! it was hard for me to choose this week. I guess that’s a good thing. Stop by tomorrow to see the winner.


  18. Thank you for stopping by to vote, Miss betty! We’ll see tomorrow. I hope you’ll stop by and check out the winner.


  19. Hey – thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving a comment. It’s much appreciated!

    I loved all these photos. I voted for “Pinwheel”, loved the bright colors, loved the crop and loved the sharp focus!


  20. Thank you for stopping by, Doris! I appreciate your kind words, here. I hope you’ll stop by again.
