I just love this image. I think it meets the challenge perfectly! I gave it a 10 and think it should have scored higher overall. The lighting is what first attracts me to the shot, and then the composition holds me there. I like combination of the straight (radiant) lines of the flower and the curved lines of the curled ribbons, and the very soft color of the yellow center. Congratulations on a lovely entry.

Likes: The yellow draws the eye immediately, since it's the odd color in the exposure, and that splays out via the petals to the rest of the frame. Nice DOF use to limit focus across the exposure.

Dislikes: the curli-cues/ribbons in the bottom half are vague enough that they don't draw my eye immediately following the flower, which leads me to exit the top of the frame instead of follow to the next textural sensation. If these were a little more harshly lit to draw a stronger shadow (like the one under the petals, middle right) they would provide stronger lines to pull the viewer into the bottom half of the frame.

I like the lighting and softness. The touch of color is just right.

the value is beautifully done. i think the curves on the lower right hand compliment the semi linearity of the petals

Nicely composed, but your DOF is a little shallow and your focus point is a little confusing to my eye.

This is nice. I like the material you've used as the primary subject and the paper/ribbon curls add a very nice touch. Good use of lighting. Best of luck to you in the challenge.

way cool BG! ...only thing is my brain wants to see it flipped vertically with the flower at the bottom. It's been traained that way I suppose.
