A masterful shot! Top 100 for me. Incredible use of selective lighting and color levels. Great crop. Great detail. Would have cloned out the tine dark specs on the background leaf.... A fave.

fantastic close up, great colours
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very slightly oversharpened for my taste. Especially noticeable in the OOF areas which could easily have been hit with a touch of gaussian blur.

Generally quite appealing though.

Really beautiful floral image. Love the details we see in the inner portion and the texture/veins I see in the radiating petals. Colors are wonderful too...the gold hue is vibrant and a deep rich color. But because it is the soft lavenders on the petals themselves look juuuusssst a *tad* washed out. Tis odd because the purple/lavenders in the center portion of the flower are a lively vibrant color...perhaps tis because they have more pigment. I do wonder if just a slight boost in saturation levels would make it stand out a bit more. Nonetheless a beautiful flower shot.

background is a bit grainy, thats distracting for me. the angle of the flower is perfect, , detail of the pollen shows up nicely.
