A geranium flower on pink paper.(Actually I believe they have been reclassified as pelargoniums, but everyone I know still calls them geraniums.)
I'm probably setting myself up for another low score, but I like the results I've been getting (obsessed with) from shooting through a lens from a flashlight which magnifies the subject and gives a shallow dof. I can only use it with a camera with a small lens. (I can't afford a lensbaby for my Nikon yet.)

Nice colors. Not too fond of the noise/grain in this shot. A lot of times, I think it works to the advantage of a photo, but with a flower, I think it takes away from the beauty. I do like the close up, and concept... just the noise that's throwing it off for me. Maybe a soft focus would have worked, making the flower appear more delicate? Just a thought.
