Terrific. I really like the effect of all the texture of the background.
It is very unusual .... the beautiful busy detail of the Dahlia holds up to it very well !

This is mesmerizing. What a wonderfully saturated effect. It would be an arresting image in an exhibit. Must have been fun to create.

For me, the background takes some attention away from the flower - perhaps because there is a close affinity of color and intensity. Looking back, I find I much prefer those dream portraits where the background takes a more second place.

Love this gold-on-gold...and especially how you captured the hint of black outline around the flower's center. Beautiful!!!

What especially attracts me is the incredible grace of the line of the stem.
