Hey, cool idea.

Given the sheer bulk of irrelevant and horrific entries to this demanding challenge, I'm awarding extra points to this fitting image. The irony (and a fine one!), IMO, is more contextual than purely interpretative, which does make for an unusual artistic licence.

The photo itself (IMO) would not be able to stand on its own legs outside and beyond the confines of the challenge, both technically and aesthetically. Whatever the particular shortcomings (the extreme soft focus, a near-centred assymetry ((of composition)), actually serve a sense of irony. The idea, however, remains more dominant than the photo itself.

The simple, straightforward title awards a rare sincerity to this entry, which would make a highly unusual attribute to ironic intent.

I wish this image will not get entirely lost in the sea of cretins!

Okay, now I understand the irony, but the picture is still a bit too fuzzy for my taste, the lighting isn't bad though the top rose could be highlighted as well as the bottom ones.

image seems a little fuzzy to me - is that a neatimage job? but I like the idea, took me a moment to get it.

Good soft lighting I like the rain effect.

I like the soft light and the glow to the image. Subject is a little centered. My personal taste would like to see the flowers more towards the bottom right cornor. The big blur spots aroun the flowers can be a bit distracting as well.

This photo almost looks like a painting, nice effect!
