Beautiful - I love the crispness of the petals and the nice contrast of blue and yellow. I might like it better without the water droplets, but overall a great photo.

This is definitely a winner in my book. Perfect execution of color balance, lighting and composition. What more could one ask for? A visual feast!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice macro, Nice selection of boarder color. Does well to accent the flower. Good use of the petal also to give depth to your photo. Nice Job.

Outstandingly crisp and clean. Don't care much for the yellow border - perhaps a little thinner might do the job.

This is beautifully done. The angle is perfect, and the colors just pop right out of the background. This is very visually interesting to me - I keep looking and looking and still seem to find new 'bits' to see. 10.

Great
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/03/2006 12:23:43 PM
love the rich color. For me, the water drops do not add and are unneccesary - it would be more beautiful without. Course, the majority of voters would disagree... 9
