You know... I know it's your only sub-5 score, but you were robbed on this one.

I fall into the camp of people who find the flower in foreground a bit distracting. I feel this way because I'm so interested in the great detail and gorgeous colors going on right behind it. I can't say enough about how much I like the range and vibrancy of the colors!

I do appreciate the unique approach at composition. The shape and scale of the flower in FG is repeated by the tree in BG which creates a sense of balance. As well as the diagonal placement of those elements, which makes a dynamic composition.

You have clearly striven to define BOKEH with this image; and although I'm not crazy about the white "blob", I do think you have succeeded.

Nice image, but I find the flower in the foreground a bit distracting.

the glare of the flower in lower right hand corner ruins this for me

This would have been quite a bit better if you had perhaps bent the large flower whiteout in the very front foreground. It upsets the general flow of the image.

The large white area in the foreground, distract me from the image....

This is grand colours and composition.

This would be a really great picture if that distracting, white spot wasnt covering almost a third of it.

See those bokhe of flowers a perfect match with the soul of the word and philosopy with the beauty of the art along with sensation..

love the depth of the elements. would have been even better if you could have gotten just one flower in focus, but nice shot

The white blob in the foreground is distracting.

The colours are beautiful, but I think the white in front, and the dark in the back are too large.

I think your did a good job. This is an image that takes a minute to take in. That is what makes it fun. I like how you messed around with the depth of field.

if only that large white blob wasnt there on the right, its just too big...otherwise i like this picture!

I love that you have blur interest in front and background. the prettiest part is the yellow, pink, and purple in the front/middle. I might try to get that big one on the right out of the frame because it is so large and takes up a lot of your real estate. The blurred left front (bottom corner) should be enough to create distance.

The lower right hand corner is just too distracting. It keeps me from looking at the rest of the image.

i gave this one a 10, because it was the only one of the hundreds of flower entries in this challenge that caught my eye. i think it actually was the unfocused flower in the bottom right corner that brings it together, the picture is perfect in its "imperfections" (unfocused areas). nice job!
