much respect for your honesty ... don't give it a second thought. Looks like I was pretty far away from 3rd (0.3 is more than a single 3).

Really nice macro. Perfect composition and DOF. The blue is subtle but adds a lot to the shot. 10

Very good abstract view of a flower. Adequately named and the subject is in good focus. Lighting and DOF is good. Does not have the wow factor for me but deserves a good score (7).

Very cool. I like how the blue in the "fingernails" pops.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Blue and yellow are great colors together. Very nice macro. A 9!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Got to tell you, this is one of my top picks. I love how you isolated the purple tips from a sea of yellow. Great title as well. Definitely a winner in my book!

Great photo. Colors are really nice. Great job! Amazing... One of my favorites!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Brilliant ... using personification is bound to allow viewer to become closer ... resulting in a higher score for you !! wooo hooo! The DOF and complementary color here are superb. Putting my money on this for top 5.

Excellent DOF and color!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2006 11:06:49 PM
Excellent!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

9 - Oh - excellent, very nice. Wow. There's a few tiny specks I can see here and there, but otherwise this looks perfect. Colors, including control of them, coupled with the detail, are excellent. Maybe that foremost anther in perfect focus too.. Great image, taking liberty of adding to Favorites.

Great idea!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Love this macro (and boy are there a ton of them). Something about the blue/yellow complementary color combination. They are lined up like five little solders. The DOF is great and I think it is gorgeous. I'm particulary fond of them being off centered - something many of the others didn't do in their crop.

Beautiful! I love how you get lost in the softness. And what a beautiful surprise with the navy blue "fingernails". Excellent work!
