Cut the flower. Hold the flower to the sky. Take the picture. I actually had to take approximately 30 shots to get it right. Cropped a little bit; unsharp masked it a bit too ... unfortunately got a bit of halo effect around the stem and the picture's edge. That's it. Hope I average over 5.

Nice colours, simple image. I'd like the flower head to be slightly higher up in the frame personally.

very nice. I think this week you need your negative space a bit more pronounced though.

Classic example of this theme - love the colors, exposure, composition, focus! I was at a photography presentation recently where the professional photographer speaker showed several photos of this theme - not one of them had the Wow factor that I think yours does. Nice work!

Great composition and clearly excellent use of negative space.

Beautiful, crisp, clearly focused, perfect saturation. ONe of my favorites. Reminds me of a crisp Autumn day in New York State. Meets the challenge too. Well done! Good luck in the challenge. Grayce aka Gracious
