Wow, does this really jump right out of the screen!
The angle and framing/cropping on this is just perfect. I think that having the subject centered here really works for this shot. Some kind of side angle just wouldn't produce this kind of depth.
Focus and clarity are really good as well. We can see all kinds of detail in flowers, especially in the very center, where the fuzzy little things are.
The lighting looks great to me as well. As does the DOF. You have blurred the background nicely, and I find no distracting elements there. The purple on green really looks great.
Definately fits the challenge, and the colors stand out very nicely.
I don't really think there is anything I'd like to see differently here. I can't really make any suggestions on improvement. Just a really great shot.

Thanks to all that encouraged me to stay.
Boy, what a difference it makes going from auto to manual setting.
The difference is easily seen from my previous challenge to this challenge.
Look out you guys in the top 3. I'm gaining grown.

Good composition. (But it's mostly blue except for those tiny stripes in each petal.)
OK, my wife says it purple.

Love the balance, color and crop. Jewel-like colors don't hurt the eyes, either! Well done.

Nice shot. I like the colours and DOF. A much more interesting composition then all the other flowers I have seen so far.

More like the color blue to me. Is this on a cloudy day? YOu need to set your white balance to cloudy or SHADE. Purple flowers are hard to photograph. 7

I get the feeling of 3-D from this image. The exposure is good but somehow the composition doesn't seem to work for me. Maybe a different vantage point would have helped.

Very nice. You used Two secondary colors, good job. I fin that placing the flower in the middle of the frame very appropriate here. Good luck. Jacko.
