Just after a storm I was over my friends house, these Dill weed plants were soaked and looked just beautiful. The original colors were green and yellow, but after a few changes I turned it into what I thought was a beautiful flower shot. Hope everyone gets the Rhythm that my wife and I saw in this shot. To me it seemed like either a beat or a pattern of rhythm. From the inside out, my eye kind of went from the inside out back and forth. So hope everyone sees the same thing. Any suggestions would help.

Adjustments:
Shot in Raw
Sharpened and Saturated
USM
Brightness & Contrast
Hue & Saturation
Curves, Color Balance
Selective Color, Neat Image
Add Border, Resize, Sharpen, Save for Web

Thanks everyone for all the great comments and votes. It was really an honor to be compared to Ursula, who I just recently have gone through her profile and seen all her amazing work. Glad most really liked the shot, and thanks again for my new PB.

Fantastic - great framing and "burst" directionality, great catchlights in the drops, nicely saturated colors. A 10 from me, I personally see nothing to improve.

I'm sensing a more upbeat tempo with this rhythm...fantastic macro! The color combo is outstanding and the circle bokeh are like little dancing faeries.

great composition and DOF

Too defined to be an abstract, not enough definition to really hook me on the patterns being presented here. Overall I like this, but its just not as powerful as I think it could be.

very Ursulaesque shot, well composed, beautiful color, good DOF. The border had needed a little more attention, though
