A very simple setup, the flower was held in a champagne flute with a black sheet in the background. In PS- Rotated flower, increased saturation, fixed one petal flaw, dodged and burned, adjusted saturation and curves, added border as a new layer and erased the parts that fell over the petals, resized, USM, save for web

One of my ribbon picks == like the flower peeking out of the border == crisp focus and popping colors work well with the square crop.

Stunning, Rikki, stunning. Perhaps oversharpened a little, but very nice.

I like the flower a lot... I'm not sure about the frame, though. It's kind of distracting. Also, I can't think how you did it legally.

I love the flower - the color, the sharpness, the texture. I really dislike the frame.

Move the flowera little to the left and this is perfect. Wonderful colors against the black background. Sharp and good DOF.

Love the center positioning of the flower. The yellow is bright and stands out nicely against the black background. Lighting is perfectly even. Not so fond of the red line and the flower spilling out over it. I feel your photo would stand alone without needing to add "gimmicky" elements. Just my opinion.

I was just commenting on another photo that was just like this. Out of the box. Gives it a nice 3D effect.
