This is an amazing image. If you don't mind my asking, what lens did you use and did you use an extension tube?

WOW, between the wonderfully vivid colors, rich textures and great composition of this shot, it's truly a stunner. It draws you right into the "eye" of that bloom. Excellent lighting and angle. Congratulations on your win!!

Very nice image. I was wondering if you could share the technical data. What lens and f/stop, I never seem to get that DOF. Congrats - Duane

Nobi and Duane,

thanks for your encouraging comments. Duane, I used a Canon 5d, 100mm lens, settings were 200 iso, 2 sec at F29. the camera was on a tripod and I may have used an extension thingie but I don't remember and the settings didn't record that. I processed it in PS CS2 and tweeked the color, etc. Hope that helps.
