As you all know I love flowers, especially purple Irises.

I fell in love with this one for many reasons, as I love the fluid flow, the rich colors, and the composition.

I am happy with this one, and yes, it is purple.

Enjoy.....

This is amazing! The composition is wonderful - I love the way you framed the iris to have that spill of yellow and that wee bit of glow in the bokeh behind. Really very well done.

The picture is lovely and soft and as such, the block yellow is a bit bold, I'm not keen on that contrast. The purple petals look fabulous though, I give this a 6.

One of a few 10's for me in this challenge. This picture is like a Georgia O'Keefe painting. The way the yellow spills out of the contrasting purple is incredible. I would give you 11 if I could.

Very pretty. Just that bit more focus would have sealed it for me, but still a lovely shot, and great background too.
