Gorgeous! I really like the soft light in this. It seems to have a golden tinge. Very warm and diffuse. The composition is great. 10 from me.

Reminds me of an old science fiction story by Theodore Sturgeon called "Cactus Dance." Nice layering of colors and textures.

This is so lovely. One might object that the cacti are too dark and underexposed but i find their darker shapes just intriguing and a perfect foil for the hot pink flowers. 10 Journey

Very nice. A little shallower DOF would blur the cacti in the background a little which would be nice, I think.

Nice shot! Almost looks like an orchard. I think the shot is a tad underexposed, although it may be the rainy season there.

The colors on this are nice, but not quite saturated enough for my tastes. This looks like a great candidate for a softening filter with this lighting too, after the challenge of course. NIce pic.

Wonderful saturation, dof, exposure, and composition. It all works together to make a first class image! :-)

Very pretty! Your image looks a tad underexposed.

Very nice flora. I really like the way the flowers are arranged and placed in the picture with the catcus in the background. It is well focused and shows nice depth. My only complaint is that it might be a tad on the dark side. A little adjustment might bring the colors of the flowers out a little more. On my top 10 list for the challenge. Good luck!

Beautiful flowers. In my opinion I would have shallowed up the DOF a little more to blur out the cactuses in the background. They're pulling my eyes off the main subject a little - 8.

Soft colors work well. Are these natural companion palnts?

For me, this image excells because of the mellow lighting and focus. Really nice work--contrasts of flowers and cactus create an engaging photo.
