This is really lovely! The little purple flowers look very nice against all the green in the picture.

Beautiful colors, great use of dof, and a unique shape. One of my favorites... well done!

This really does work well and it is the complimentary OOF background that is so uplifting to it

8 - Very nice. The DOF is near perfect showing the 'tail'/tip just starting to disappear. Coloring is good, especially the greens. Good 'hair'/texture capture and the lighting is nice. Criticism; mainly just the blown areas at the top of the 'curl' on the flower petals, but difficult to control I imagine, especially as you seem to have retained good detail in the darker areas. Not sure on the frame, 'works', but at this size, perhaps a touch too thick in my opinion, but just a preference thing. Up to 8 from 7. Taking the liberty of adding to Favorites.

Lovely image!

I really like the shallow DOF on this one, but IMHO it's a little too shallow. That spiral curve at the tip of the bloom is really interesting, and it goes all fuzzy.

very unique picture and I think it is awesome. Gave you a big woppin 10
