The Gerbera is cut square with a pair of scissors. Then I put the stem through a hole in a black paper. Photographed outdoors when the sky was covered with heavy clouds.
Not much work in PS.

Kudos for mentioning where you got the idea from. I remembered seeing it somewhere but wasn't sure who shot it. It's a very good attempt and you shot it a little differently. It has a bit of your own in it for sure :)

Very pretty. Nice framing. I like this a lot.

Very creative. Really fun take on the ole flower from above. Odd that someone had to initiate a validation request as this looks like something perfectly real, but on the other hand I'd take it as an honor that they thought it was too good to be true ;)
I'd only suggest some light fill on the right side of the frame, or dodge the highlights there. Would really add a bit of pop I think. (no vote, just leaving comments)

It's an interesting way to frame the flower.
