Doesn't meet the challenge: zero.
; )

Just kidding - this is nice, but perhaps a little soft and won't appeal to a majority of voters because of the 'flower thing'. The composition could be improved here by off-centering the subject and giving the viewer more to concentrate on by getting closer.

Doesn't wow me, but I do like the colors very much.

beautiful colors, great bokeh. focus overall is a bit soft. i bet though, that this could make an interesting piece of digital art if you applied a strong gaussian blur to the flower itself. good luck!

DOF looks to be a tad too shallow. Using a wider DOF to bring the entire flower into focus would really help this.

Pretty flower. Focus appears to be a little soft. I might have used a smaller apeture to get the entire flower in focus.

I love the focus and the background blends perfectly. Should be in the top 10 IMO.

This is pretty, though I'd like the focus to be just a tad sharper. Nice effort.
