A fine job of shooting this beautiful blossom. I like the placement of the bloom in the frame. Shooting and processing have produced a fine image.

Dan Creighton from Pottstown, United States

WOW. Love the out of the box composition of placing the flower hard against the top edge of the frame. Lighting, focus, and background are spot on as usual.

Yippee! Wonderful texture.
And I love this little girl flirting with her skirt turned back just a tidge.
Composition is very interesting and the pink and gold is smashing !

Anita, I really like the pink on pink and the positioning of the flower grew on me rapidly. BUt, to be honest, I'm not real keen on the extra long stem in this image. It makes the flowers look gangly to me. I could almost see this as a horizontal comp. Just my two cents.

Frida from Sweden

I like how you have been creative with this. Lovely colors but I think it would have been a bit better with a not so long stem. But that's IMHO.
