Just a pink lily bought at a local florist for this challenge. As usual, I had something completely different in mind when I started. Was determined to shoot this flower from every conceivable point of view except straight on. In the end, I found a straight-on (macro) to be the most compelling capture.

Thanks for looking.

A perfect composition with a perfect title. A worthy contender for the top prize. Rich and effective detail with all the right components of technical perfection from bokeh to foreground.
