Doesn't grab me, as it's a pretty common theme. To make something like this really pop there needs to be something about it that is unusual (or unusually beautiful) for this type of shot, whether it be in the light, what the creature is doing, etc.

A nice try here - pretty flower though the shadows on it are a little distracting.

I find the problem with shooting flowers like this is either the white balance is off or the contrats is to high which makes it a little bit blurry. I think you might suffer from people sitting to close to the monitor and will see it as blurry. I like this shot and find the DOF chosen works well. The bee just adds so much more to it. I think this would make an excellent callender shot or just a standard picture to hang on a wall. Thats not achieved by many. Well done and keep up the great work in 2005. <8>

Pretty flower and bee. I find the lighting to be harsh and the shadow created by the plant on the bloom is distracting.

I don't usually like flower shots -- only because so many people have done them that they all blur together. But this one really draws you into it because of all the interesting elements. The focus is perfect, and the colors are awesome. Great job.
