I agree with Ursula that this scored way too low. It's a nice image, good movement abstraction. I would however, have preferred it without most of the stem--a crop of the left portion just above the leaf. The danger of that is that it does appear to be "severed" and "floating", but I find the blur effect on the stem, especially the leaf, more a distraction than anything else. Worth playing with some crops. Don't let the DPC voters discourage you from experimenting like this!

I had to come back to this image. First of all, the score is way too low (in my opinion) for the quality and execution of the image. It is very difficult to "get a high score" with this kind of image.

What I am wondering though, why did you choose a movement image, why did you choose this movement image? It is the kind of image that grows on you: the more I look at it, the more I like it. Contrary to what I said before, the movement does add to this image, it makes the image. But why?

I am so very much trying to understand camera movement pictures. They are so very attractive, but I don't understand the purpose or meaning of them for the most part - usually they seem to me like a picture with movement but why?

Oh well. It's late.

Nice execution - colours, white background, composition, clean movement, everything is fine, but, IMHO, the movement doesn't really add anything to this picture, why?

Nice colors...I think? Way too blurry.

the image is much more profound than the title gives it credit for - I really like this, but I'm sure many many voters don't. It just makes it art - something this site doesn't really reward. Do a whole series of flowers like this, frame them and sell them as sets.

I'd personally crop the white space off of the right hand side so the space between the blossom and the right edge is the same as the space between the stem and the left edge.

Interesting abstract and title. Love the orange/red color of the bloom and the way the flower enters the frame.

I had a hard time looking at this picture, I know this is meant to be out of focus ... but it hints at dizzy not delicate.
