Very well done. Excellent contrast between the colors and black. I even like the border select on the redish orange. I hope this does well for you.

Beautiful. As a magazine cover? A bit big, IMHO. For the orange challenge? A winner.:) Anyway, seriously speaking, I realy like tthis shot. The black background makes your main subjects stand out.

Beautiful colors and crisp focus. Very impactful- and I like the generally diagonal feel of the composition. For the purposes of this challenge, note that Flower & Garden runs their headline from edge to edge right at the top of the magazine, so you should have left more room along the top and ditched the border. (No, I'm not going to beat you up for that).

Beautiful capture. I'm not sure if these are real or silk, but either way it is a great shot.

Very effective image with the contrasting orange and black. Bet you took a while to ponder over whether to enter it for this challenge or "Orange". :)
