Richard Lynch November 07, 2013

Several things I like about this... the short depth-of-field, the interesting way that selects out the tangle in the middle of the flower, the way that echoes into the more perfect outfold of the petals, how the colors complement... I might have cropped a slight more off the right and top... or right and bottom -- I'd have to try it to be sure.

Nice effort!
