A garden of flowers at a local University. I didn't realize until after I looked at the EXIF info that I had my White Balance set on "Incandescent". Oh well. Very little post-processing. Cropped, USM, Re-sized for web. Hope you all enjoy.

Greetings from the critique club

WOW! If I had taken my watercolors and splashed around, I'd be proud if I got this result.

Incandescent was the way to go to both make a nice image and please the voters. Congratulations on a nice placement in the Challenge.

One of our missions in the Critique Club is to offer suggestions on how to make your image better. Can't do that with this image, so just take this note as another appreciative look, and continue to bask in the incandescent sunlight. Nice one.

Such a serendipitous shot... whatever "mistake" you may have made here, it turned out ridiculously gorgeous. Hands down my favorite shot of the challenge.

Nice composition. Not sure I like the color on the image, though. It looks great in the background, but the foreground flower may have created a much better look with a bit of color correction.

The vibrant colors make this a joy to look at. Excellent work.

I don't know what you did to get such fantastic colors in this shot. As a thumbnail I wasn't sure I was going to like it (thought the color was going to be too much)but at full size it blows me away. I really like it.

Wonderful color palette! Looks like a flower set in front of a painting; nice effect.

What attracts me to this image is definitely the strong color hues and the soft background. Excellent work!

Rather busy composition with overly saturated colours but they seem to work pretty well. Comes together quite nicely with the vibrant colours and bokeh. Bumping up.

Like the almost watercolor effect on this shot. Very "Monet".
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/05/2006 11:06:29 AM
This has a great saturated feeling to it. VEry nice and far from the typical flower image ... only criticism: the near-background flower almost takes away from the flower that sits in perfect focus because of the its high contrast.

07/05/2006 07:35:23 AM
Nice and colorful.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/05/2006 03:19:32 AM
These colors are way too oversaturated. It all looks far too processed. Sorry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2006 11:21:41 AM
Background's a bit distracting for my taste but the overall look is very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Indeed, as the title says. A delicate portrayal of a lovely garden. Lovely work from someone who obviously has a high appreciation of art. 9.

I LOVE these colors! A real treat to behold and something a bit different to look at...very nice.

A bit heavy on the saturation/sharpening.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

excellent use of colour and interesting composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.

WOW! Love love love this. Tha bg looks like an impressionistic painting while the main flower is in perfect focus. This is beautiful!
