Wonderful capture...I like the detail on the foreground flower. It certainly looks like a crowned queen.

Definitely meets the challenge and exhibits proper bokeh. The subject matter leaves me wanting (not because it's a flower - I have nothing against flowers - it just lacks a "wow" factor for me). Good luck!

out of focus flowers are nicely done and enhance the overall feel of the photo - it makes it seem almost painted - nice.
