Quite fanciful, almost like the flower wore their best party dress and put a tiara on. Nice work.

You have captured some really beautiful details and stunning colors seen on this passion flower. I have seen these flowers up close and they really are exotic and beautiful to look upon. I like how you composed the shot such that the center portion of the flower is at the diagonal; seeming rising up and touching the top right corner. That adds alot of visual interest to this floral shot. The colors really pop visually off of that dark background.

Not a big flower/macro fan, but this shows a beautiful spectrum of colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
