Wow, what an excellent piece of art. It reminds me a bit of that great artwork by monet (Water-Lillies) because of the beautiful colors and the water-like background feeling. I love photos with a small field of depth, which focus on a certain part of a scene. The background is beautifully blurred in different and awesome shades of color, from turquoise to violet.

Just one minor critique, I personally don't like that cropped flowers at the lower right. I would have either "shopped" them away or cropped the picture in another way, to stop my eyes wandering from the lower right to the center. I would have tried adding a small vignette too.

Overall this is an outstanding photo because of the beautiful colors and great use of DoF.
What do you think?

I love this shot. I do like the new take on it -- the edited blurring of everything around it and the focus on the flowers in the center. Takes all the attention from everything else in the photo -- I like it. :heart: Also kinda seems like it's in an enchanted fog... :D

The lighting is very good. Not too bright, not too dark -- gives the flowers a special luminosity and power. It has a good angle as well. :)

The flowers have excellent clarity, and I like the little buds behind them. Beautiful. :love:

One thing that kinda ticks me off (although not too much) is the bottom right corner -- the buds/blooms aren't as blurred, but not as focused. It takes away some of the magic from the center, but at the same time it gives the photo another subject. So it helps and hurts at the same time. Everything else is pretty good though. :D

Excellent work overall. :love: :hug: :heart:
