    Unusual angle and approach - love the abstract crop too.

    Beautiful flower portrait. The colours are gorgeous and I love the detail of the stamens.

    Interesting effort, but I'm afraid it doesn't hold much appeal for me.

    Love this photo. You must be a male photographer as no female would ever call this 'blue'. It shouts purple!! sorry for the sexist generalization.

    I'd be happier if the light coloured background were as dark as the rest of the background. and the depth of field had the entire foreground in focus but you might need stacking to achieve that. Good detail light and colour all the same.

    Creative and interesting composition.

    A neat closeup. It took me a couple seconds to realize what it was. I think there are some opportunities to improve it a little by cropping the right side just a tiny bit to eliminate the edges of the petals. Also some local adjustments to darken the yellow-green parts of the background.

    This is a "different" flower photo which I love. I like the focus fading from the centre of the flower and the colours are beautiful. Good framing too.

    Beautiful colors and detail. Very simple yet pretty.

the flower was photographed over several days at the same time
the problem was isolating the flower head. it had just popped open as I approached and the first bees were hanging around so time was of the essence
the yellow bits were damaged at the end of the day and they had done the job

    the close up in the center is sharp as a tack and color great but i think you may have shortchanged yourself by not getting i bit more of the flower in the shot. nice one.
