Ouch! For anyone that wondered, yes, there is an out of focus face in the background.

Philip, landed here because of the Waldo repeat. This is beautiful. Clever. I can just feel the warmth and love, till I see Audrey II.

Oh i saw waldo, very clever! It's a shame no one got it, otherwise it's a very beautiful shot

I liked this shot! I just couldn't find Waldo and in taking another look at it again, I'm thinking that perhaps, it all depends on monitor resolution. Your monitor may be brighter and therefore, more easily seen. Perhaps, on most monitors, it came out too darkened to be able to identify or see the face in the background??? Anyways, take heart that it was a great shot and I think most voters just considered it a DNMC entry. :(

Wow, I can't believeeveryone missed it. I had this in my top three. Congratulations on meeting the challenge with something artistic and different. Sometimes it's good to be rejected by the masses.

I expected that most people wouldn't see the face in the background, but I didn't expect to see it waaaay down at 2nd to last.

I wonder if a black and white version would have done better, since it naturally lends more toward the supernatural.

This bud portrait stands well on its own merit. The subtle bokeh "waldo" is clever and complimentary. Beautiful.

There's a subtle face on the flower. Is that it?

Is that someone's face in the background? Wish the flower were sharper.
