Hello Mike, your picture is great I like the clarity of the one flower and the flowers in the background do look like star bursts. I do have a stigmatism and it takes me a moment to focus on the the flower that is in focus, but that is just me. Love the colours.

Wow this is an amazing photo. The flowers really look like they are exploding in the background, and i really like the way that the single flower just pops right out at you.

Thanks for your kind comments.

If you can get to this again, what do you think about focusing on one of the fully opened flowers instead of the partially open one? I think it might be interesting to see what one of the open flowers looks like and then have additional exampled in the blurred background.
Just a thought.
Still a fantastic photo!

Wow, great photo.
The flowers are so perfectly spaced. I thought at first I was looking at some sort of graphic. Very cool.

Just home after a couple of days away.
A beauty. Compositionally, it just couldn't get any better.

I love the colors! That green is awesome with the purple. I like the shallow depth of field too. The shape of the petals are good, looks like a bomb.

To be honest I can't remember what I've posted before Katy.

Had I taken some time and effort at the time of shooting, a better photo may have resulted.

Thanks, Mike, for responding. I had, actually, had the thought that it is, truthfully, very nice to see you post again.
Well, for starting with a "rubbish photo", you came up with something that's pretty catching. I think that the best part of taking the time to comment - even just to think about it - comes down to me thinking through things and learning; so, I appreciate your response.
and, may I drop in your ear.... please, keep posting.
