This is pretty unique and I like it, but the whites are just a tad blown out. A little more definition would make it pop.

as much as i like this, i think it is far too subtle for this challenge. i hope i'm wrong.

This is NICE! I like the subtle contrast of the yellow with the blue background and the clean-ness of the white on blue. It would be interesting to play with the background colors and see how it changes the "mood" of the shot.

I don't know what makes this better than the other flower macros, it just is. 7

Choice of backdrop colour works well to give a very funky, modern feel to this shot...

i like the softness of the flower, and the composition, but I find the blue a little too blue, maybe desaturate it a little.

Clean and vibrant - love that blue and DOF! Back to bump you up to 9.

Lovely combination of colors - the stark white against the bright blue wih touches of yellow. I am trying to decide if I like the lack of focus - really the only things in focus are the tip of the left-most petal and the yellow tip of the pistle. The composition in wonderfully dynamic - bursting out of the top left corner and therefore the image works as an abstraction. But I do think I'd like more in focus nonetheless. 7

Smooth, smooth transitions in this beautiful photograph. Blue comes dangerously close to being too much, but thankfully stops just short. Excellent work, 8!

Looks a bit too photoshopped

I know macro focus is an issue but too little of this is in focus.

Its a bit out of focus

Ah - doesn't it look like a ballet? I can hear the music and almost see the delicate pistons swaying. Blue is an unusual choice for backgrond color so it really demands attention. And the blue makes the white look whiter, Lovely,

The concept you were going for is good, but the DOF and focus is a tad lacking.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

lovely color
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice light and colours - but I can't really find anything that's in focus and my eyes keep searching for something.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Looks good although Im not too sure if it has any focus?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 07:37:10 AM
Nice idea but something needs to be in in focus to fix the eye
