Wow! This does have the wow factor for me. I'm surprised it didn't score higher for the challenge. I just love the crisp focus, color, and reflection. Perfect.

This is quite a sensitive and lovely capture with a truly pleasant feel. The colors are just great.

- Scientific explanation: "The illusion of a reflection underneath the flower is achieved by selecting the right angle to take the photo from, relative to a horizontal plane.......as well as determining the correct, yet subtle angle to place the object at......thus creating the illusion of an underneath reflection". (thanks to my better half)

I'm a flower lover, this is beautiful. Colors are perfect and focus nice and crisp. Only small complaint would be the leaf in the upper left.
- Not a leaf, but part of a statue and I had the same 'complaint'.

Thank you to all who voted it high.
