1/14s, f7.1, ISO 100, 90mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: RAW files converted with Adobe RAW. increased shadows, decreased highlights, increased contrast; filter-unsharp mask; curves. Used same settings for 2 images that only differed in focus. Loaded 2 files into a stack and aligned layers; auto-blend the layers.       Extra Info: This is a composite photograph of 2 images that only differed in focus. Used the focus stacking in Photoshop to obtain the final image.

    Stunning image! A black background is a great choice for this challenge. The flowers are beautiful.

    Negative space isolates the subject beautifully. Lovely detail and gorgeous colors.

    Wonderful detail, with excellent lighting. The black background provides a solid negative space that focuses attention to the subject.

    Good detail in the flowers and buds; your focus stacking has worked well. The extreme contrast with the black background is rather jarring and leaves me wondering where all the light is coming from; might want to trim some from the right as well.

    Well composed. In my favorites.

    This is a very striking image against the black background. Just curious how much of a difference focus stacking really made in this imagine considering the subject plane is parallel to the sensor plane and the subject doesn't have much depth and it was shot at f7.1.

    Quite effective. Every so slightly blown in places perhaps the only major detraction but well framed and lit. Focus stacking was definitely a smart choice.

    Wonderfully sharp which I guess is the photo stacking. I keep meaning to give that a shot but haven't got around to it yet. The composition works perfectly for the theme.

    Crisp and clear. Very well lit. The pitch black is a good negative space helping bring out the white petals.
