I think the hot pink is definitely warm enough. Interesting against the cooler background (which has enough green to also warm it up a little). Good DOF, and I like the composition, too. Congrats, you did well, especially considering it's a flower shot (there's a lot of them in case you haven't noticed).

Interesting macro, and funky shapes. It doesn't scream warmness to me the way some other shots in this challenge do though. 6.

This is an amazing flower, love the curls that appear on this. The bee is nice and black with a good contrast. The hot pink against the cool green works in your favour.

I would say almost that the flower is overwhelming your main subject, if you shape your left land into a L and crop the picture right up to the more whitish of the plant, you have a more dramatic main subject.

Your lines are clean and sharp, the colours are outstanding, you have managed to get a nice sharpness about all the aspects but no halos from over sharpneing, very nicely done. The title does help to determine that it is a bee, I first thought it was a fly. Doesnt matter either way, bee/fly works well.

You did a great job on this macro. 8
