Prolly over kill but I was stuck on the 'range of colors from orange to red' in the challenge description and went with it. Oh well.

Post: Same old...spot edit a remaining bit of the vase at the bottom center after the inital crop. 2 more crops. Camera Raw adjustments. Levels, brightness/contrast and hue/saturation. Colors curves adjustment. Adjust sharpness. Remove color cast. Resize. USM.

Can't remember if I was in Orange I...let's see...Hmmm...5.6727...well we can hope for better. We'll see.

Great lighting, unfortunately its on a very common theme in this challenge. Still gets high scores. Is this painted with light?

Nice sharp shot, I think that it would have been more striking if you had left the lilies white to contrast besides the orange.

to me this seems to be over-contrasted...or possibly to much hue/saturation...it just doesn't look natural...but then maybe you didn't want it to...

I really like your lighting here, maybe dial the highlights down just a touch...you've lost some details in the petals that I would have liked to have seen.

I think this image needs a little more light to bring out the beauty of these flowers

Like the underexposed effect. It works for the warm colors. But not sure if the black background will be much appreciated in this case.
