This is an amazingly beautiful picture. The lighting is superb. The subjects are well balanced and nicely arranged. All 7 of them!! I would love to see this framed.

Great lighting...like the composition. Perhaps just a little deeper aperture, not sure where the focal point is?

Very nice job. Can see a bit of reflection from the top of the vase if I look closely, but it doesn't bother me too much. Well done, in my top 3.

Very good composition and the cropping is just right. Far from being the typical flower shot. It has a strong resemblance to a expressionistic painting. It's subtle and smooth / explosive and aggressive at the same time.

Beautifully lit, but I don't think the '7' stands out clearly enough.

Returning for comment.
Lovely to look at. Bumping up one notch.

Beautiful, the lighting is perfect and the background adds to the image instead of distracting the viewer. The small amount of the vase at the bottom is very minor and I don't think hurts you any...this could be a top ribbon.

drop dead gorgeous shot!

Very nice, especially since you can't see the stems. The way they are arranged and seem to be floating is a nice touch.

I love this one. I love the angle of the camera and the lighing on the flowers. Well done.

Simply excellent. An absolute winner for me.

I can just imagine people making sure there are definitely seven flowers here. I started to, but decided it didn't really matter to me. The picture is sharp and the colors vibrant. I can also smell it. Good work.,(7)

Glad to see a picture that is in focus but it doesn't really do it for me on this topic. 5

I enjoy the lighting and shadow of this shot. I like how the colors float against the black background

i really like it, but something about the flowers looks too dark to me. i can see the highlights are really bright, but somehow the flowers seem muted. maybe it's the black bg, maybe it's my eyes at 1:43am.

Very vry nice shot. Love the colors against the black background. Looks like a ribbon winner to me. Well done!
