Wonderful capture. You chose the right flower for the foreground subject.

Very nice, i like the deep green background. it creates the moody tone

Definitely meets the challenge and exhibits proper bokeh. The subject matter leaves me wanting (not because it's a flower - I have nothing against flowers - it just lacks a "wow" factor for me). Good luck!

the background definitely adds the interest to this main-subject coneflower.I like that there are several at different depths! nice bokeh!

The bokeh is ok, I wish the main subject was a little more interesting. Nothing peronsal, I take flower shots also...the coneflower head you selected is looking tired and the lighting is kind of harsh. Early or late day sun may have better? Wait for a bug (bee, butterfly, etc...) to land? JMO. ;^)

Very nice! I especially like the contrast in shape between the background flower and the subject. The dark color of the rest of the background really sets the two of them off together, too.

Really lovely. Maybe the best I've sen so far. Love the color variations.

Nicely done, and the "Bokeh" is pleasing to the eye.....
