    Congrats! I love this shot, I think it's the interplay of the green and purple/red areas, as well as the contrast between the sharp leaves and smooth background, it all works.

    Well done - floral shots have to be spectacular to take top place - and this one is.

    Congratulations! Such a beautiful photo. Your photo actually pushed me to finally buy a macro lens this past weekend.

    Thanks everyone for the votes!

mrsawyer: The vignette was not added- it was made a little darker in the raw to jpg process, but there because of the macro attachment. I did not zoom out enough to eliminate it. I was actually going to get rid of it, but decided to actually emphasize it for this shot.

    Very well done bokeh. I would like more detail in at least one petal. The vignette was added, right?

    I appreciate all the comments!

This was taken with a GH3 and the Pany 45-200 lens, along with the Raynox DCR-150 macro lens attachment.

    Absolutely gorgeous image, my #1, would like some more info on the equipment used!

    Sometimes simple is the best. Love the sharp detail of the flower, and the dreamy softness of the bokeh. Excellent work, and my favorite this time around.

    Love the shot but I'd chop off the bottom 1/4 which is dragging the subject down, this would also position the flower to the rule of thirds which in this case would improve the effect. Choice of focus is perfect and helps transmit a soft appearance to the petals, which I'm sure they are. High in my picks - well done.

    Closer? Tighter crop? Sharper? Less obvious vignette? Something more is needed to move this from good to stunning.

    the title says it all but the work done to get the result with choice of lens focal length.
