Wonderful colours and nice effect on the petals! I suppose the long exposure makes up for the lost light ^_^ Congratulations on your win too! Omedetto gozaimasu!

@Koushiro~光子郎: Thanks! Yes--you perfectly understand the reason for the long exposure.

Lovely, it's like a 'pink sunburst'. Great detail in the petals. Nice one!

Congratulations! Well deserved recognition from a very reputable source!

This image is stunning! There is so much to look at. Stars, within stars, within stars.......The longer I looked to more I saw! I admire the way you make the petals so smooth but provide so much detail in the center of the image. Your use of lighting is superb as is the color saturation. Bravo.
