Macro heaven - well done. The dark colors of the center are perfect with the pastels radiating outside. Composition is excellent. Border works.

At Last!
A photograph from somone who understands complexity. And the beauty of perfection.

I've been dutifully ploughing through and voting on the "simplistic and trivial" presented here tonight and your wonderful image is the only one so far that demostrates to me ani intelligent interpretation of the theme.

Well done for the idea, the interpretation of the theme, and the quality of the image.

I'll give this one a 10........or shuld it be 1.618?

the petals are too washed out which is distracting... but the flower is beautiful and I love the red!
