Camera: Canon PowerShot A75
Location: Sandy, Utah

When I got home from shooting and saw this image on my computer, I was just blown away at how beautiful this flower was. The radial pattern on the flower just seemed so pleasing to me and I knew at once that this would be my submission. I decided to keep it in color to take full advantage of the contrasting colors (pink/green).

I hope I don't get slammed for having a centered composition because I feel that it works in this situation. Hopefully the voters will see past that.

I think this photo is by far my best submission to date, and I'm hoping for top twenty.

Very vivid colors, and I like the full framing.

so much more beautiful and colorful, will really brighten up a person in need of sympathy. I would consider the rule of thirds here by placing the yellow more in the right bottom corner... try it and see the diffs!

Very pretty colors although the edges get kind of fuzzy (possibly by design)

Great work on this one. This is a center composition that works really well. Nice job.

A nice photo of the flower. Very good colour and nice sharpness on the flower. Unforunately, that sharpness came with a fairly well defined background. I would have liked a little more blur on the background. I think it's a good fit into the challenge.

your cosmo is a bit overexposed to me.
