Really beautiful. I'm surprised it didn't do better. But nobody agrees with me these days. LOL Love the bokeh and the DOF.

Well I'm shocked...I thought this was very beautiful, and am surprised it didn't score much higher. Regardless, it's a very good photo and a magical creation. Well done!

This is very ethereal with the shallow DOF. The color and tones are excellent, as is the detail. This photo just about puts me into a dreamlike state. Outstanding!

Nice picture of a hoverfly. But I can't decide whether the wings are trembling or just not in focus. The colours are subdued and very pleasing.

Good composition and DOF but it's a bit dark.....would love to see it brighter so I could see the detail in the bee.

Really clear shot of this guy, and the pink of the flowers and the softness of the wings adds something magical to it. actually if you could have over exposed it it would ahve increased that effect 10 fold. really great capture though.

How lovely. The softness and colors are worthy of a nature magazine.
