An image taken by lying under a single lily flower with camera in hand; this plant was a gift (thus, the title) from my elderly neighbors who both died a few years ago;taken just about as the sun was setting behind the flower...used shallow dof to only keep some petals in focus: I'm certain to hear a lot about that in the comments...but I wanted it to be a bokeh effect...crop, levels, curves, color balance, selective color, usm

Sorry, the front bud is just too distracting for me

What is your focus ? The lower left leaf and part of the left petal and its lower stem appear in-focus, But my eye is wandering looking for your intent.

The green bud in front of the orange flower is a little distracting. I would like to see this image with the bud moved to the side or at least with the orange petals in sharper focus...if possible with the green out of focus.

This would have been better if it weren't for the closed flower blocking the opened flower. I think it's too much of a distraction.

out of focus bud in foreground is major distraction from photo.
