Love this in so many ways. A beautiful capture and processed excellently.

Interesting and definitely creative approach resulting in an image that is, unfortunatelly, not pleasing to my eyes, but hurting them :( I don't know what it makes to others but when I look at it my eyes want to cry. I guess that it's because of the sense of motion and my eyes don't know where to focus, except the centre. I didn't mean to offend you or your art in any way. Only wanted to tell what it makes to me.
Beside this the shape of blossom is very interesting and it looks a bit like a ballet dancer, indeed. Very nice colours as well.

@Tomas Turecek: Tomas: I'm not offended. It is natural that some images won't be liked by some, and I don't mind knowing that. Plus, not all my postings are of equal quality. I consider this blog a place to experiment. Thanks!
Wow!!! This is stunning. Perfect in every way.

interesting composition, almost looks as the flower has been turned inside out.

Hi Anita. On one hand I agree with Thomas above but not to the same extent. I think I agree with him to a certain level because this goes against the simple and truly elegant style that you normally show. But on the other hand, and I'm not trying to be politically correct, I find this very artistic and also refreshing. My eye definitely does go to the center and focuses there for a bit. I think the zoom lines, or psuedo zoom lines, help to force me there. My eyes don't hurt looking at the photo and I find myself thinking it is interesting and a unique take on a flower image. I don't think it would be an image, as a stand alone, that I would hang on the wall as I would other single images of yours. When shown with several images of a more "radical" (for lack of a better term) style it may work very well in that context. I love that you pushed the boundaries here and hope you keep experimenting. The title is perfect by the way.

I like this image for its composition and placement in the frame. Beautiful color too. Well done in my book.

Keep up the experimenting! I applaud your trying new things, and having the guts to present them to the world! not everything appeals to everyone, so stick with what's in your heart, and you can't go wrong! Great job!

@Marcie: Thanks, Marcie. It was all done in post processing using Radial Blur.
