I can't believe this didn't finish in the top 3! This photo and the Finish Line were my top picks for this challenge...I'm just in disbelief. This is a wonderful photograph! It makes me want to crawl inside on the softness of the petal and go down to the core and check out what's going on down there!

Quite honestly I'm stunned this finished this low. I thought this made for a wonderful abstract. Apparently 19 other people agreed with me. (your 9's and 10's). This was my only 10 of the week, all challenges inclusive. I did give the first place photo a 9. I think I only gave 2 of those. That is a gorgeous photo and a deserving winner. I just can't fathom how this pulled 28 spots lower than mine even. This shows some tremendous vision and I'm very disappointed at the voters this time. This is really a wonderful photo.

I absolutely adore this image, but it gets a 9 instead of a 10 from me because nothing in it is *quite* in focus, unfortunately.

Intense picture. Awesome colors, great negative space, a classic 1/3rds picture. Awesome. 10

Interesting color range and lighting. The circles really draw me into the "off center" subject. I liked this one a lot.

Really intriguing flower. Putting it off center indeed helps this photo, making it seem more natural. I like the depth of field here.

A little abstracty for my tastes, to be honest... but at the same time it's an interesting variety of reds.
