The rings are out-of-focus water drops and are characteristic of mirror lens. This was shot with a 500 mm f8 mirror lens, the flower was backlit by the rising sun and there was a drew shrub in front providing the water drops.

Interesting idea, good execution. While my eye is drawn away from the flower by the distractions, it is always drawn back.

A very interesting submission. A great idea, but the execution of the photo maybe didn't quite do ity justice. The flower looks way too fake for me, and I feel you lose a lot of the overall impact as a result of that. The yellow I feel needed to be a strong, bold, bright yellow, and not the colour you have in this. A vibrant colour would ahve made it stand out, and make a statement, above everything else.

I like the flares .. allot and those circles, technically the picture is amazing .. but not sure it convey focus.

This is great. It's quite rare around here to see meaningful pictures, so illustrative of their title. Nice processing, you probably made the best out of your photo!
