Just some flowers I was walking by...I like it, but I don't think it works amazingly well for this challenge. So, I'll enter it anyway!

"Mellow Yellow" is an nice entry into the Burst of Color challenge.

I think your subject is great, I like that are subjects are really lying on the thirds of the frame. I am not sure if the soft focus was intentional or maybe there was a breeze blowing by. I think the movement does give your piece something interesting that draws the viewer in. I wonder if you had just focused on one flowers specifically and let the rest melt into the background it would have scored a little higher.

Overall this is a nice piece the colors are nice, a little soft for a burst of color but I think it works well for this piece. I really look forward to seeing more entries from you, best of luck!

Composition is appealing, natural color okay (try darkening the yellows/greens with contrast adjustment or curves in PS post processing, the lack of focus is going to spoil the voting. 4

focus is off a touch. Looks like a little motion blur. Maybe use a tripod? Other than that, pretty good composition.

Nice use of DOF. Colours are good but not brilliant. Background flower cause sense of distraction.

Outstanding. Beautiful colors and DOF. Focus seems a little soft on the subject, but I like the overall softness of the image.
