I could swear I fav'd this during voting! I like this for the orginality. great colors and focus. Love the smoke in the BG too. IMHO this shouldve placed alot higher than it did.

coming back for comments. one of my favorites-- creativity gets you a 10 with this one even though i'm not completely sold with the composition... just my reeeeally humble opinion, but i think you could crop nearly an inch off the top. :)

terrific set up and the light and background are perfect to complete your Cronenberg effect. 9

I like the colors and post-apocolyptic feeling here. The light is perfect. The subject may be slightly more abstract than I would have chosen but definnitely still works as a flower. I actually had a very similar idea but useing the head of a real flower .. I didn't end up doing it but I think you've pulled it off well. A nice creative take here.

background is slightly distracting but this is a really clever idea :)

Great concept. Original..

Very creative in subject! Nice photo and background seems appropriate. Perhaps more of the "flower" rather than the circuit board and support at the bottom ...? 7.

I like the choice of darker lighting with this photo. It is very appropriate for the mechanical flower. Very well done!

Wow...now this is very different and could very well be the way of the future. 9.

I like the originality and out of the box thinking here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Awesome idea... it's just missing a little bit of punch. I think the lighting is off a bit - too dark.

I have no idea what this is but it looks pretty cool. I love the dark smoky backdrop and the "industrial feel". A nice break from the same old flower shot. Nice color too. 7 so far.
