This picture really deserved to do better. I truly like it. Very good job!

I've seen so many of these heart shaped flowers - I need to get some! Very pretty and vibrant color, great title! Like the others, I think this should have scored higher!

Floral is always tough to do. Though the composition is good and overall a nice photo. Surprised with the score, I thought this would have been higher.

I'm surprised at the score on this. I'm guessing the subject was too small and it wasn't especially sharp. DPC loves sharp. I wonder how it'd look cropped down so the heart fills more of the frame?

Hey their score double! I can't believe that our bleeding heart scores are almost exactly the same! I love how you got the color to pop here. Mine was real soft and that was one of my comments. next time I will make it pop (and probably won't use flowers, they don't seem to like them at all :-)

Well, at least I learned selective coloring!

You know, in retrospect maybe this could have been flipped horizontally for better left to right sight lines. Sorry I forgot about that. I do think it's a lovely picture and that you mostly got clobbered by floweritis. Note though, that you got a fair number of 6-7-8 scores, so some people appreciated it properly!

I was thinking of things to say about this picture, and started picking up after myself (wife is on vacation in Idaho), and I was headed to the trash with the first load of beer cans. I looked back from the kitchen , Your picture stood out so well it was incredible, This photo demands to be noticed, well done.

These things are so gorgeous - I had one plant in the backyard this spring but the landlords dug it up when they redid the yard. I'm wondering if leaving the other two in color may have added to this, though I do think the composition is a bit awkward. Very good work isolating the color in editing, something I found quite hard to do!

Bob, the bleeding heart is beautiful. This may not have been a good choice for selective desat, because the image doesn't seem to be improved by the b&w. The heart would have stood out nicely against the green, so the question is: why was the green removed?

The B&W needs more contrast. Like the color
