FZ10 is great... run a search in the forums, I'm sure you'll see lots of comments.

5th place, I wasn't expecting that! Thanks everyone, and I'm glad it was worth coming back from Loch Ness to Yorkshire in one day to enter this shot.

Wow Bob,

This was one of my top picks in this challenge.
This is a superb composition and was sure it was
going to be in the top 5 spots.

Very Well Done!

NICE, wonderful shot as I was looking through some plants and finding a hidden treasure of elegance.

Beautifully saturated colors and I like the color contrast here. DOF is excellent. Composition is a mixed bag as I like the natural frame produced by the overarching foliage in the background, but the foliage below invades the space of the flower's stamens and is quite distracting. One more nit pick: there seems to be a leaf out of place in the upper left hand corner.

Stunning composition & image quality.
I hope this does well and see I have some tough competition for a ribbon.
A well-deserved ((8)) and one of my favorites in this challenge!

Nice DOF and colors. The muted green really sets off the lily.

Very interesting, slight less depth of field to really bring out the flower in my opinion, very nice shot nontheless

beuatiful colors, but not sure if lily works with lichens, did you do hand place the lily?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

WOW! This will surely end up in my top 10 if not my top 3. The colors are vibrant without hurting my teeth. Background is as interesting as the foreground but compliments rather than competes. Very Very Nicely Done!

An absolutely beautiful flower, but my mind's eye wants to see this against a black background. It would make the red really pop and the brownish anthers would still be very strong. As it is, the background is too busy for me and distracts away from the central subject.

Ahh - the tiger lily is so great a specimen. It really needs a plain non-distracting background unlike the lichen behind the stamens now. The orange color is stunning. Border does not need the white lines.

I very much like the way you have framed this flower. It adds a great deal to the composition.
