Yes, you're right. That adds a very pleasing effect. And those colors are so lovely together.

Beautiful, Neil. You should have saved this for a Free Study, though. It would have been far more appreciated by the voters there.

I didn't vote in this challenge, but this is utterly gorgeous. Perfect just the way it is.

I almost said in my comment when I saw this that it looked like Neil Shapiro masterpiece. This is so beautiful! Your photography of dreamy flower scenes is unapproachable!

I sat this one out but went browsing (no voting) through the galleries during voting and missed seeing this beauty. While I don't get the strong impresssion of 'brush strokes' I think you nailed the painting impressionism style of compositional shapes, bright colors, and play of light on main elements. Love that soft focus or glow that causes these flowers to really reach out and grab the viewer's attention - and it was accomplished by simple hairspray on the camera filter! (I am going to have to try that sometime). This is a lovely piece.

Neil, I can't believe this one didn't break 6. What a low-scoring challenge this was! Still a beautiful shot, and actually a very good placement overall.

Beautiful softness suits this capture. Colors are great. The one bright spot at top left distracts a bit.

This is beautiful with the delicate coloring and softness. Zooming in I am not thrilled with the filter but at the size submitted I love it.
