Found this weed in my backyard. I thought it looked like a firework. Almost no editing...crop, resize and adjust saturation. It may not do great in this challenge, but I like it so here goes!!

Delightful image; amazing clarity and (obviously) no over-sharpening (as you didn't sharpen). Congrats on your new personal best score!

Absolute mastery of focus. And the beautiful colour.. The focus of the main leaf in the near center. This is a focus genus

Alot of flowers in this challenge I see. But this one is very pretty, the red in the middle really brings out the green.

That's a burst, alright. Really does look like fireworks. I'm not sure how it would work, but I would try darkening the green and yellow to give more contrast to the image. The detail in the grass is a bit distracting.
