My first submission in over a year...be gentle :).

These flowers grow in my yard and my neighbor's yard. I have no idea what they are.

The blue colors in the flower are good contrast with the yellow. Good picture!

I know the background is meant to be out of focus, but the shapes and colors in the middle of the picture draw my eye away from the flower. 5

I really like the background. Really nice blend of colors. The flowers simplicity is very pretty and I like the placement of the flower. Good Job.

Nice. I would like a little more depth of field.

Nice macro shot.

Very nice DOF and colors, the focused area is very good. I think you spend some time to focus the middle of the flower. Congratulation.

Really like this - especially the way the background is VERY blurred. Almost lookes like the flower has been spot-editted though... the edges look outlined.

I love that we're not looking at the flower straight on, the side view makes this so much more interesting.

Pretty, but out of focus.

I like macros and I really like the colours in this. Too much sharpening for me (watch the halos around the edges), and I would like to see a little more DOF. I would try this one again attempting to draw out the fine purple feathery elements in the centre together with the yellow pollen - would make a nice contrast IMO (but perhaps would then not meet the challange but would make a nice image).

Very nice image. However the white/light-colored object in the center of the image is distracting. It tends to pull my eye away from the beautiful colors that are happening in your main object. Nice detail. I'm sure there is a big ol' honey bee waiting in the wings to do his job. <6>

The focus looks a little off, if you didn't use a tripod you might want to try that, or close down the aperture a little bit!
