Nice. The outer rim of the center looks like people standing in a circle. Very interesting.

Flowers will never go out of style.

The spiderweb distracts a little...(I know, details, details)...but nice colors and focus is right on.

Great shot and focus. I would have cropped out the gappy petals though as they are distracting from the dynamics. Good DOF. [7]

A good macro but, a little too central for my liking

What magnificent color!!! Great detail. How often we overlook the wonders of God's creation. One of my favorites.

Challenge met for sure. Somehow the yellow petals seem a little overexposed. After looking closely I detected that there are water droplets on the petals which you probably could have brought out more by tweaking the lightness and contrast.

You even got a little spider web in there! I don't like the effect on the outer petals much.

Nice vibrant colours, excellen detail on the pollen etc. The nicely filled frame gives (for me) a less 'typical' flower shot feel to it, which is refreshing. Good luck with it.
