Beautiful! I went out for a walk with the family today, and spotted some wildflowers by a stream. I took a quick snapshot (no tripod or macro lens with me) so I could look them up later and figure out what they were. Thanks for saving me the trouble.

Beautiful. I love the dark, moodiness of this and the painterly affect. Would make a nice print.

Elegant and thoughtful, so much more since the main character is a flower! 8
PS. I would eliminate the border to let it float.

WOW! This stopped me dead in my tracks. When the challenge is over, I'd love to know what lens you used and your processing? This is stunning. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2011 09:34:00 AM
WOW - this is an absolutely stunning image. I wonder though with the blur of the others, if it doesn't quite suit the "rules" of the challenge. If the focused flower were the only thing yellow, to me, it would offset it as the subject more. If this were in a free study, I'd give it a 10 hands down. This needs to be hung on a wall, HUGE, or on canvas. I love it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2011 09:30:03 AM
