A tiny peace of nature at home...
The "sun" behind the reed is a candle burning.
With the light spreading on the white wall, I had to do no post-process editing but croping and adding the border.

What nice lighting the candle gave you...I would never have guessed it to be a candle! I don't always use it, but in this case I think a run through NeatImage or the like would improve the "look" of the shot. As is, though, it's really great tones and composition.

Any chance you could clone out the small flare in the middle - I mean this is a superb image either way, but for some reason it distracts me a little. Okay... thats just being fussy for the sake of being fussy - really well done.

A bit centered - would work better if moved left or right a bit. Excellent use of the sun to backlight the grass - it produced some marvelous colors. The border is not needed.

lovely image, great colors, if this were Advanced Editing rules I'd say you should fix the hot spot right in the center

Great detail and color. Love the border. A little too centeredt for my taste. Moving a little to the left may have gotten rid of the bright spot in the center that really draws the eye... 9

One os my top picks - good job!

This is the kind of image you expect to see people pick up for high class interior decorating. It really is a striking combination of colors, highlights and contrasts. The composition is such that everything (circular color scheme, grouping of plant stems, bright lights) draws you into the center focal point where all light eminates. Really nice image. Congratulations.

Excellen work. The frame is though a little to distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great image, one of the best i've seen. The color balance is striking. Is this in a studio? It seems like it is, but the look and feel is of the sun.

Nicely composed. Very nice light and colors. A little off center, but that isn't necessarily bad.

I really like this shot. Wish that bright spot right in the center weren't there, but the colors are so warm and vibrant.

Great shot in all ways. Nicely done

I like the colors and the details. I'm not sure but probably it would be better with more ears or cropping closer on the left and right side. Anyway good shot.
