The colors are amazing and the view is one of those interesting things where you feel like a bee stumbling upon a feast. ;)

Greetings from the critique club.

First let me say, I love this shot! I know it is a flower but the colours and the slight blur make it an abstract that appears to be in a fire, or kiln with that red glow.

As an abstract and impressionistic image, it's a 10+ esp. if you rotated it to be just a bit more diagonal in the frame.

For the challenge,, well, I feel it need a bit more of the area to be very sharply focused to give a real feel of shallow DOF.
I think that is what held this fine image from doing better. I think it was better than 4.7 but what do I know?

If the stamen (?) was very sharp and the rest has the lovely blur you have here it would definitely be a top 10 in my book.

Very nicely done.

Wow, now that's a real close close-up, is that a seed pod of some sort? Really like the colors, seems just a tiny bit oversharpened maybe or maybe that's just the texture of whatever that is inside.

I'm sorry but I don't know what I'm looking at and that becomes a distraction.

no sharpness at all I'm afraid.

I like the colors, but I'm just not really sure what it is.

I really like the colors and the abstract quality here. I'm not sure I can make out the center black object so the dof may be too narrow.
