Very nice colors against the black background. The bottom may loose focus a little. 7

Wow! Great colors and amazing lighting! I like your use of DOF and how the flower seems to hang in midair. This is not your typical flower shot. This is great!

Nice colors - but looks a little unnatural to me. Good capture and nicely focused. Interesting perspective in a challenge full of simular shots.

I likre the flower and the colors. IMO, the compostion is not as effective as something else could have been. Still nice - overall. 8

7 - Jumps out this one. I do not know if it is naturally green, or pp, but the texture, like satin, is very nice. The centre is captured well, I like the colors. I am not sure about the black background. I will wait and see how you did it.

I love the colors on this flower! I've never seen one like it!! Just beautiful. Great detail and clarity. Good choice of background color as well.

I know you'll probably get hammered for "overprocessing", but I LOVE it! Beautiful colors and DOF. Nice job!

beautiful green tones - complements the orange center. Well seen. Great POV and composition. Still debating back and forth about DOF but the glow on the edge of the petals is consistent and superb - might be ruined by more focus there. I just can't get over this shade of green - very striking. Nope - larger DOF would detract - one of the things that makes this image is the glow from the lighting - having the edges of the petals in focus might ruin that. 9 from me - good luck in the challenge!

Like the lighting and the sense of depth.

Very nicely done. The color verses the black background is super. The texture to the petals is very nice. A little soft on the right side edges but, very very nice pic.

This is pretty - like it's floating in a sea of ink. The fuzzed edges and crisp focusedcenter is nice. I like the light around the edges alot.

I love the details in the center....great detail in the center...but I love the center more than the rest of the bloom.
