it has nice tones, seems to be lacking sharpness. Also you should try and use the full 640 pixels and 150 kb space for challenges. Here is a little tutorial. Welcome to DPC.

Not a bad pic but I have to agree that it looks like you were simply hijacking MaryO's incredible image from Purple. Though it's OK to be inspired by ribbon winners (dirty job but someone has to do it :-) as you've learned, voters look unfavourably upon apparent attempts at plagiarism.

Does the term 'shoehorn' come to mind?

Beautiful photo, no road.

You must be kidding...

Grainy and indistinct. To be honest, my impression is that you were trying to duplicate the look of red winner from last weeks purple challenge. That's probably just coincidence,however. Unfortunately, I don't see a real road nor do I see a metaphor for choices on the road of life.

Lovely color but it doesn't seem to be focused enough. I think it is stretching to connect this to the challenge.

I cannot see how this meets the challenge. Even with the Title, I cannot make the connection.
So, ignoring that now. To me, the image looks soft, I don't like the lighting, and the crop, with the top of the pink cut out, also doesn't work for me.

hmmm..will be interesting to see the final tally of this one

Probably well traveled..

I'm having a hard time seeing a literal or figurative role this flower has with "highway." Plus, I'm not too keen on it being an almost identical but flipped image of MaryO's ribbon winner.

I fail to see the connection to the challenge except for the title

love the picture but don't see how it fits the theme
