exquisite - so well photographed and bursting with implied color - I can think of nothing that would improve this beautiful shot.

Gorgeous clarity and detail. Needn't be in color at all to be stunning. Were I a betting person, I'd say maybe a deep pink?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a gorgeous b&w flower! I love the contrast - the whites, the blacks and everything in between - the sharpness and how the flowers pops against the black background. While it doesn't make me think of a particular color, it does give me the visualization of a light colored center with darker tips.

The lighting and sharpness makes this photo, great job, although I am not sure what colors are involved here it screams vibrant to me just as it is! Who cares what the colors actually are LOL
