very nice colors, comp. simple and shallow dof works.

Very nice colors and such a smooth appearance. It's a very pretty shot with a simple subject.

Great colors.

Colours are brilliant. this should do very well, one of my top votes

I would be interested in seeing the 'original photo' hope you post it. The subject jumps off of the screen. I'm curious about the post processing of the original.

Very simple shot, but yet very eye catching, I love the color combination, the blue background was a very good choice imo....10

Interesting photo, but it appears to me as though it has been "photoshopped" to bring out the shallow depth of field... IMHO

doesn't seem to be in focus on the bloom

Beautiful colors. The green in the background looks a bit lonely, and some more of it (or none of it) might have given the picture a better balance. Very nice though.

Definitely one of my favs. I'd buy this! Great colors, nice composition, well executed. 10. Very well done! Good luck!

its bright, no doubt - kind of 3d

Very vivid image..nice use of colour.

The red and blue fight for my attention, and that coupled with the shallow DoF earn this photo a 7. Good Job.

I really like this. It's very simple and a great use of shallow DOF.

punchy colors and good placement of the in focus part

I love the way the sharpness of the red flower stands out against the blue - it grabs your eye and plays with it almost like an optical illusion. Nice composition, also. The colors are perhaps almost so saturated that I think you've lost some detail in the reds, but overall a very interesting, eye-catching shot.

Simple, elegant, lovely color coordination.
