Not sure if the shallow DOF will be quite obvious enough here, or if people will miss the tiny fly. I do love my Sigma macro/telephoto, though.

Really beautiful image. This should have gotten 1st place. I didn't see this image during voting, otherwise I would have given it a 10.

Well done! Keep it up!

Love the bold complementary colors and the composition. The detail in the flower is awesome, and the bokeh is lovely.

Catherine. AWESOME! I noticed the little fly right off. That's what I love about it. It gives such scale and perspective to that big vibrant flower. Congratulations.

First word from my mouth when I saw this was: "Oooh!" :)

Superb colours, composition & I really like the fact that you've managed to get the entire centre of the sunflower in perfect focus. Excellent, excellent, excellent!!! LOL A wall-hanger for sure!

I like the lighting, focal point and color on this. I also like how the soft focus on the flower petals almost makes them look like brush strokes.
