Lovely colors and nice composition. I like how the background bokeh has a painted effect.

I like the narrow DOF - the background is a lovely impressionistic frame to the flower. Wish the flower itself had more distinction - a bit out of focus, and the lighting makes all the petals blend - a bit more contrast or more contrast light would have helped bringout all the subtle details in the petals.

Beauty is a subjective thing, I know. In my scoring and comments I'm trying to score based on NOT whether or not I would think a particular subject beautiful, but on whether the photographer has succeeded in creating a beautiful photo. I look for the elements of color, lines, focus and dof interest, lighting, and a certain element of grace and lovlieness. I'm looking for a unique and creative appeal for the highest scorers. The description says to create a photo that makes the viewer think "that's beautiful", so it will undoubtedly be very subjective. (This is what I'm putting at the start of all of my comments, and I hope it is helpful.)

That being said, this is a slightly different approach to a floral shot and I think it works well with this particular bloom. I like the bit of faded color from the bloom in the background as well. For composition, I would like a little bit more cropped off the top, but that's really a matter of taste. Nice color and decent focus although not super clear. Above average for the floral shots IMO.

cool. I love sunflowers and you've captured one brilliantly. I especially like the cropping on the left.
