Wow, fantastic colors! I love the perspective and the focus. The soft touch on those back petals really catches my attention. Nice.

I am disappointed that this photo didn't get a ribbon.
I really thought it would. Excellent shot!
I love the colors, the lighting, the cropping and the soft focus.

Absolutely beautiful shot. Perfect DOF and lighting. Great composition. Well done (10). How did you achieve the blue glow?

Great Shot! I love the detail in this. Did you use a softening filter or portrait filter for this shot? Maybe it is just a heavy dose of Neat Image or something like that. Anyway I like the effect it gives this shot.

An absolutely lovely photo. Amazing how you've brought out the softness and haze with the blue lighting while maintaining the sharpness and contrast of the petals, as well as the bright yellow glow. This deserves a win.

Very nice.

I don't think the purple light is adding something to the flower and the top of the leaves are overexposed...furthermore, the picture is too blurred, nothing is in focus. Good idea, presentation is not so good..

Incredible. Heavenly is actually a better word - colors are wonderful, framing is exquisite, details are remarkable, clarity is something I aspire to. (While I don't like the long title, I agree with you that it's necessary because the light sources here might not be obvious.) In my top ten choice for this challenge. I really hope you do well.
