If you are going to do a rose, this is a very nice way of doing it. Excellent focus, exposure, contrast and processing.

Nice macro. The lines really draw the eye through the shot and create a focal point.... 7

i like how the rose fills the frame. It's a little noisy, but i think i like it that way. Very good tones and gradations

Very nice, Love the shades of bold red. A bit grainy though.

Very nice. Sharp and colorful. Nice macro work. There seems to be a touch of noise in the shadow, but that maybe my monitor. I'll wait till I am home to vote.

A blood red burst of color. Good shadows and light.

Color doesn't offset subject from rest of photograph. But it's a nice closeup.

Nice composition, but I find the focus a bit distracting.

"Use a colorful impact to offset your subject from the rest of the photograph." This is a lovely image of a rose, but the entire frame has been filled with "subject", there is nothing the red is being offset from or by. For that reason this really doesn't answer the challenge, no matter how fine it may otherwise be. A 5 from me, for it is surely colorful so you got half of it :-)
