This is beyond doubt a winner. It is a wondeful composition with warm colors and the lighting enhances further the delicate textures. dan

Lovely colors and composition. Small nit - would like to see a bit more of the leaves/stems. One of my top 5 picks.

This reminds me of another photo for some reason. Pretty good for a flower photo. Good exposure in the right places, good underexposure in the right places.

Wow! I have seen some of the most beautiful florals in this challenge, but this one is oustanding even among those. the colors are so vivid and the lighting makes them leap out of the darkness. Your choice of borders is good. I wouldn't change a thing.

I'm a Tulip freak, so I may be a little biased :) but I love this photo. Both the lighting and the subject are wonderful and I also think the border is a very nice touch.
