Now, this is beyond doubt one of the softest yet strongest visual rendition in the DPC archives. Certainly an image that can bring quietude and that state of pure serenity. Congratulations on your Red!

Congratulations on the Red. Your bokeh strongly supports your main subject. Having it blend into it is a stroke of genius.

soft and clean -- what an eye for detail and composition -- one of my ribbon picks
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/31/2006 10:03:15 AM
Beautiful :)
Came back to bump you up - hope to see a ribbon here (probably unlikely as it seems that the only thing that counts for most people in this challenge are "circles of confusion" - but I still believe this is the best shot in the challenge. Composition and colours are perfect and so is bokeh IMO.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2006 08:15:06 AM
The essence of Bokeh. Bumping to a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2006 07:21:13 AM
White beauty is dead on. This is lovely. Great detail and clarity on the front flower andthe soft blurred background really completes/compliments the image well. A far cry from so many of the flower shots that feel like they were placed somewhere just for the bokeh effect without any other purpose. Lovely lines and colors. One of my top picks of the challenge. Bumping up to a 9 for now. I will most likely be back to finish this one off.

Neat - 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 01:11:41 PM
Gorgeous! After reviewing most, which are just not done well, to my eye, bumping up. It is perfect for the challenge and has this light airy clean sensibility. I love that it is predominantly shades of white with that punch of green here and there. The diagonal lines created by the flowers is lovely. Good luck. I hope it does well. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 09:53:17 AM
