This is one of my highest rated images of the challenge. I really love the simplicity of it and the rich blue/lavender is stunning. The detail and focus is really good.

I am so pleased that this image did so well for you. I have now put it into my favorites (favourites - spelling in in Aussieland) I luv it, so well done. I also have this plant in my Queensland tropical garden, and my Mother-in law also had one in W.A. as well........

Great photo! Very much like a fine art print. Love the color, the green buds(?) really add to the composition.

7 - Very nice. Coloring is true - I almost submitted 'one of these', but the quality is nothing like this. Good use of shallow DOF to bring out the color and character in this flower. Criticism; 640 height, possibly the top stamens/anthers in focus too (difficult likely) and perhaps trying to incorporate/enhance the color of what appears to be more of them in the background, so perhaps just more 'space' up the top, likely make this even better in my opinion. (Butterfly Clerodendrum, Blue Glory Bower (Clerodendrum ugandense) if you are interested and did not know the name).
