OMG what a beautiful picture, you know you did a great job =) I love it

the clarity of this image is fantastic ... I really like the contrasting colors also, makes the flower pop off of the page

Enviable detail and sharpness on those petals, and the blue looks so wonderful against the gold background. You're very good at these macros.

I adore chicory; it brightens the side of so many roads and paths. Great blue flwoer and the background here sets it off perfectly. I also like the little "crown" it's getting from the seedhead behind it ;-)

I don't think the colors, focus or bokeh could be more AWESOME!!!!!!

This is great. Your focus and colors are wonderful. I was trying to do a yellow one yesterday and was having great difficulty doing it with a 50mm. Very fine capture.

Breathtaking lighting which gives a 3D effect to the petals. Couldn't have asked for a better background either, the orange hues really make the blue pop.

What a gorgeous wildflower!!! The colour is just stunning and I love the background too.

Stunning flower, I agree the crop could be tweaked a little, but lots to like

The sharpness, color and everything - WONDERFUL.

Very pretty. Lovely DOF.

Delicate and divine! Outstanding colours and bokeh, a very beautiful shot!!
08/03/2008 03:49:10 AM
Stunning color, bokeh and clarity throughout. This is a standout IMHO.

Ooo! I love the colors and lighting!

I think you're losing some punch, because your composition is a little off to me. This is an image that would definitely benefit from the "rule of thirds." Also as a personal preference, I would flip it Horizontally so the flower is on the left side.

Strong contrast of color from the rich purple/blue flower, against the perfect golden DOF background.
