    What a great composition, such a simple image! It just works, not sure why high in my favourites.

    very sharp, but I don't like the centered comp, using the ROT would be more effective next time, nice shallow DOF though.

    i prefer the main entry . Bing Crosby was one of the many to record this lovely song

    tvsometime, shot in natural light (8:33am), no flash, handheld. The only thing done other than normal sharpening was to use CS6 spot healing brush to remove a dead distracting flower from the lower right. If you look closely you can see a faint yellow. Should have mentioned this in post-processing, but had forgotten until I just now went to the original to get the time. This was taken on a field trip with my photography club to a nearby nature preserve.

    Unusually effective capture managing the darks of the center and the blazing brights of the pedals all with good tone and detail. How was it lighted? top 5

    Thanks, everyone. I was so caught up on the sunshine idea that I did not see that the flower looks like a singer. Missed a great opportunity for extra info comment

    Cute! And oddly compelling; a flower with human personality.

    When I saw this and saw your song title because of the leaf arrangement I could see this flower singing the song

    Beautiful, clear photograph. The subject evokes the song well.
