Gorgeous Kathy. The colors are truly wonderful. The composition, along with the soft focus, add a somewhat “impressionistic” feel to the image. Great capture.

A lovely looking photo. Soft colors and soft focus really make it. The color combination is also very nice. I am a little confused by your comment “One picture…” Is this a multiple exposure? Just curious. This is very well done.

Exquisite! The composition and colors are spectacular.

This is beautiful, Kathy. Perfect plane of focus and depth of field and I love the angle you chose to get those background colors in just the right spot.

Kathy: Oh this is marvelous! Wonderful color palette and I really like you DOF/POF choices. Most excellent! >=))>

Splendid! The colors and the shapes, the way the pastel colors contrast with each other… It is an amazing and beautiful image.

What a beautiful effect. The colors, shapes and composition are spot on. Love it!

This is compelling. I like the composition and soft treatment. It makes you want to look at it and study it more, which is a very good thing. Kudos!

Kathy, the colors and shapes are outstanding. Your focus on the arcs of the petals and the color changes is perfect. Very well seen.

Hello Kathy, I truly feel you touched an emotion here, this image is spectacular in how its drawing my eye into the scene. The soft pastel colors from green to yellow really move to nice gentle calming feel. I believe it could be a lovely image for display on a wall for others to enjoy. Perhaps consider in a location to help other people in high stress situations reflect and calm like Hospital or Dentist offices?

All has been said, I just want to add my compliments for the photo and say that what I love more is the movement created with a direction from the RBC to LTC by sharpness, color saturation and light. Beautiful.

Nothing really I can add, Kathy - a stunning image, beautifully composed with great dof selection and lovely colouring.

I too love this image Kathy. The softness of light , color and the petals draws one into the frame. I agree with everyone, its beautiful.
