Inspired by Gabie's lovely Los Girasoles. I was very taken by the way the sunflowers pop against the zebra stripe background.

By the way...the background is hand painted by myself and the sunflowers are fake.

This was one of my top picks. The contrast colors are striking and the red vase was a perfect addition. Well done! (Also, You did a great job on the background painting and I wouldn't have guessed that the flowers are fake.)

A really odd combination that works very well. Good job on this. (I didn't vote in the flowers challenge, or I would tell you what I gave it.)

I'm guessing this is ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' De Sousa because of the background. Great shot.

Great detail in the flowers. The background, however, is a little busy for me.

A bit too busy for me -- there's too much going on here. Less is more!

WOW that really twists your brain looking at that BG! I think the flowers and vase could have done well with a plainer BG.

Lovely graphic representation of the subject. It's so strong and bright, but very interesting to look at. A very unique style. I really like the white matt around the pattern. It gives it a breathing space. Nicely done.

Quite a daring background, but I like it. The lighting and the sharpness on the petals are a bit too hard for my taste, but again it is OK considering the pop background. If I had to guess, I would say that you are a bit bored by floral photography and you tried to spice it up a bit.
