Nice warm colours and a courageous composition. But for my eyes there is too much total black background. The last quarter of the picture would have been enough.

Excellent light here - really strong sense of detail in those textures. There is a slight impression of having clipped colour channels, but to get that intensity must be a matter of compromise somewhere, I guess. Minimalism? I don't know ... it's a kind of straightforward approach to the challenge, really, and I'm finding that this trick of using a perfectly isolated subject only partially in frame to be lacking great impact. Your light and colour make up for a lot of that, however.

Excellent shot. Is this the flower's real color? My only criticism is that there are a few dents in the top two petals which I find a little bit distracting.

OK... I'm impressed. You broke a rule of composition and jammed your subject way down in the corner like many other shots in this challenge, but the difference is in this one it works. I don't know if it's the fact that you left it in colo, or the very minimalistic border that you put around it that kinda pulls it out of the corner a bit, but it works. You got my vote of confidence!

Beautiful lighting, beautiful colors, beautiful flower. Curious if this is getting doesn't meet the challenge topics due to its size. Personally, I think it's fine and an excellent entry.

Very nice color

Just another flower image. A good one but like most of the others just a flower and is not making me interested. The composition is good and the colors are functioning well together.

Nice detail and color in the flower. Maybe it is my monitor, but even though the colors are nice they seem a little flat. 6

All this dark does not add.

lovely, the orange could have slightly brighter though. 8

beautiful picture, thankfully you used a black background for a nice change! Unfortunatly, the subject takes up a third of the image, which just doesnt match the challenges requirements, so i can't give you the high score the image otherwise deserves.

Absolutely Awesome. Out of all the thumbnails, this one screamed out 'me first!!!'. Love the color & the lighting & the perfect focus. Fits the challenge beautifully. 10.

Beautiful colors, although I would like to see the center of the flower centered in the lower right corner.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great detail and texture on the petals. I just wonder whether cutting it off makes it a better photograph?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

love it, no no to border though
  Photographer found comment helpful.

beautiful color contrast
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 05:11:36 PM
Nice.however, i think the subject is farely big compared to the frame, maybe if it was smaller t'would fit the challenge better. 6

Beautiful flower. The lighting could have been a little bit stronger on the flower to bring out some detail in the black center.

beautiful colors in the flower! I like this image.

though 309437049 did flowers for their subject i think that you pulled it off the best, i love the contrast between the two colors.

nice but not my idea of minimalism
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a lovely shot with a warm color. The frame doesn't do much for me--I think it detracts, but I do like the imagery.
