"Calla" is one of the strongest flowers entered into the Square Crop challenge. Also excellent placement in the large challenge, top 6% is really great.

The clarity and DOF is absolutely amazing. The focus on the stigma (I think that is what its called) is virtually prefect. It is amazing how close you can get with a lens. I love the composition. The background is so deep and gives such a great contrast. I really don't see anything I would change this is an absolutely amazing piece and so glad that you chose to enter it into this challenge. This image is so clear it almost looks unreal. Great work on this piece. Keep up the work.

I was just looking through the highest rated shots for the Oly C-8080 and saw this shot. Very well done! Beautiful! I bet you're happy with this camera! I love the macro mode. I don't have a macro lens for my dSLR so I use my Oly for macro shots. It's a great little camera.

One of my favorites this challenge -- well done version of a very photographed flower (I've tried shots of this lily and know what it takes to produce one as well as this one)

Not usually a fan of flower shots (just too many of them), but the lighting, focus and composition here are exceptional.

Nice macro. The fuzziness of the stamen is amazing and we don't even realize it til we see it so close up.
