The composition isn't quite right for me, but otherwise well presented pic.

The bright color against the white paper really helps the picture to stand out. Good Job.

Fantastic image and so fitting with the spirit (at least as I read it) of this challenge. The colors are very vibrant, the details around the flower are well placed, and the cropping is well done (love the diagram of the flower!).

This is really nice, I like how the different parts of the photo all flow into each other.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2007 03:03:32 PM
I remember doing this......there's something very calm and poetic about the way the flower contrasts with the bland paper
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2007 08:02:18 AM
I like the color of the flower against the black and white of the papers. There is a lot of detail in the flower as well. Great capture.

Nice job of pulling the flower to the "school days biology" theme. So many just took a picture of a flower only. Great lighting, focus and composition.

very nice. strong composition, with lots of stuff to get your eye exploring which could have made it too busy, but they don't detract from the central image. - 8
