Straight from Camera with only 3X Sharpened, Resized, and Saved for Web. This is one of those pictures where even I ask, "How did I do that?" Well, I believe this is that photo I took "on a lark." Already tired after many digital photos in a morning set, I saw "just one more," but didn't want to get down low enough to look through the lens...So, I didn't. I put the camera down low enough & tilted it up in the direction of the flower, listened for the autofocus ringtone that "told" me it was in focus, and I pressed the shutter release. Voila! Man! Dudesy! I guess I'm a better photographer when I doesn't try! :)
Thanks for all the great scores!

I like it, i really like it. Only criticism: the web between flower petals and the sharp distraction on the left.

The bokeh here IMO actually comes off as a bit of lens flare (distraction) instead of enhancing the image. I love the sunlight through the petals and the vivid yellow.

The backlighting is attractive.
