John,

This is simply an amazing and beautiful shot that deserved much higher placement. I'm really at a loss for words on this one my friend just stunning work!

One of my favorites as well...not extremely surprised by the score though, as flowers don't often get too many high scores.

Definitely should have been higher!!! I figured top ten. I like the inside border - frames it nicely! You have a great shot and should be proud of it!!!!

From what I can glean from the comments, it appears that you`ve been penalised by some voters for the internal border.
That`s a great pity as this is a real work of art and worth a full point more than it got IMO.
I can never quite understand why people let the frame or border distract them.
For what it`s worth, I thought your border was quite subtle and fitted in well with the image but I`m obviously in the minority.

Seriously good stuff..well done.

Great color contrast and framing.

Lovely image..great composition..super shallow DOF which makes the background the ideal foil for the subject matter.
Great work.

Man, the last time I used an internal frame, I got hammered. It's quite a nice shot though. 8

Nice flower picture, but The interior border doesn't do anything for it.

I'm not a fan of this kind of border at all, but the photo's colours and DoF are excellent, 8
