Greetings from the Critique Club };-)

Initial thoughts
Beautiful composition, meets the challenge, colors are stunning

Composition/ Content
I feel like I can almost smell it we are so close. Focus, lighting and exposure are all super.

The shallow DOF works well here and the light green color works well as a background.

Camera Work - Technical
Focus seems good and contrast is excellent. You've really got a killer shot. Some folks may want to see the entire flower but I think this is right on.

Digital Processing - Technical
I'm trying to come up with something helpful here but basically you have an almost perfect technical shot IMHO.

Fits The Challenge
Definitely fits the challenge well.

My Opinion On The Photo
Super shot that probably deserves a ribbon. The quality of shots this week were incredible though. Great job, and keep up the good work.

I would be happy to talk further about this shot if you would like to contact me.

Great shot! Colors and focus are prefect! Cub

I like all of the colors in this picture. I think putting all the light on the flower brings alot of intrest to this picture. Nice Work

Great macro, nice detail.

Nice sharp image with the appropriate amount of background out-of-focus. The shadows are soft enough to not be distracting and I like your title.

This is beautiful. Great exposure and lighting. Love the color combination. Very nice composition but the center of the flower is almost too centered IMO. Nice use of dof. 9

Very nice, the colors look very cool.

Beautiful vibrant colours. I love how you captured the centre of the flower. Excellent macro work. Well done and GL.
