I think people like to see every part of a flower in focus so this may not do well. But what I liked was how the textures of the flower were emphasized in parts of the petals. Used my $10 extension tube again.

I didn't vote on this challenge but when flipping through the photos I noticed this. It is so intimate, right there, can't look away - amazing effect. Very arty and most interesting.

I love the tones and the dof, combined with the sharpness and detail in the tip of the rose

Just looking through the entries for the first time. Cool shot. I like how the tip of the bud is in focus, then it fades to softness below, then there is the unexpected petal edge in focus at the bottom.

Well this is just ludicrously underrated - I was expecting to see a top 10 or 20 with this. The shallow DoF is just perfect and those who wanted it deeper are, well, wrong! ;)

Beautiful texture and love the play of the light and shadows.

I really loved the dof here and the way you took something that was way past its 'sell by' date and made it look beautiful again. Great sharpness and the tip of the rose looks to be coming out of the screen. Certainly deserved more recognition than it got

Very effective crisping of the edges by your colour and DOF.

Interesting control of the DOF

Nice. A bit more DOF would have shown some more details.

Very nice use of shallow DOF.
