It's gorgeous - there's nothing like luscious color against a black background but this is framed beautifully as well... very dynamic.

Beautiful colors and composition. I think you had the DOF just a bit too shallow on this one: I would have iked the front edge of the flower to be sharp as well.

I like the depth of focus here and the rich colors.

This is probably my favorite shot of the challenge. I love the colours - the yellow against the indigo works really well and the water droplets are an awesome detail. 9

Wow, wow... what a fantastic shot! I really love it! 10

Nice detail. I would have focused on the colors in this flower, and the composition feels a little off balance because of the yellows both being on the left...the color that is..7

Equisite composition and color. I love it against the black background...really brings out the colors and texture. Good control over DOF and I like your angle of view so that even with the back petal blurred, you can see both. Very well done.

Beautiful shot, the colors are wonderful , the detail of the water droplets are great good job

Great macro shot. Love the colours against the stark black background. Good Luck, Todd. 9.

great macro - done many times but still a cracker

Lovely work. Composition is nice, lighting is great, color is beautiful. Only thing that I, personally, don't care for is that the petals seem to be just "floating" in the photo, there is no stem or anything to ground them.

This is a really beautiful macro, done extremely well... I love the black background, and the choice of using just a few petals of the flower in the photo. Great DOF. The only thing I might say is that the droplets looks too centralized and unnatural... I think it almost might have looked better with fewer droplets. Nice job though. -8- good luck!

Very well done with the title.

A beauty
01/01/2004 07:17:16 PM
It's a prince of shot! I would have liked to see both petals in focus though.
01/01/2004 02:46:03 PM
Can't go wrong with water drops on petals! Great color here! Very pleasing to look at! 9 -danny

Nice color and softness. Good job.

I't always been a beautifl subject and this is not an exception. Composition in great, colors wonderful. However, too much of a cliche alreay.
01/01/2004 02:11:06 AM
Amazing macro shot! I really like the beaded water on the petals and the background: it's not distracting at all. 10!

Lovely subject, light and color. Very nice. Good luck in the challenge.
