If you could have just removed the folage at bottom right and left. Love the colors though.

That is such a wonderful picture, the focus, everything I am speachless. It really didn't match up with the theme though. But I'm still going to give you a 9! (shhhhhh!)

Very very nice work. I usually dont care for flower picks ( if you can call thistle a flower) but when one is done well I have to appreciate it. The colors are fantastic, The focus is well distributed and the bokeh is very complimentary. Great Image.

I love the sharpness of your subject and the luminosity of your bokeh behind! This is a great shot and well worth the 9 I am giving it! Congrats!

Ah! Good and crispy...love the color and texture.

Nice flower. The bokeh at the top is smooth and helps set off the flower, but the leaves at the bottom are a little distracting.

Still, very nice!
