The colour is bold. It's strong, powerful, and not at all shy. The flower is not as delicate as it looks, and the ribbing of earthy red compared to the yellow-white stems is subtle. If I were an insect, I'd say the appeal of the flower was its aesthetic, not its flavour.

You've narrowed the scope of this flower to one section. One cropping of what I expect to be a much bigger flower. You've isolated the core; and in doing so have won my eyes.

The curling of the inner petals is significant, but versed in the poetry of subtlety. The seed-core is obvious, but not obtuse, and the flower has flow that is unmatched by its competitors.

You've taken a stunning shot - a moment in time that's nothing short of beautiful. The colours are bright, the contrast and focus superb. I love the shape of flowers, and this to me is quite unique, and foreign; Australian flowers are far more alien. This has a classic flower quality with a streak of modern edge. Endearing to say the least.

Asymmetry is given balance through its form, and its texture gives it a full, luscious look. Excellent vision, and an eye for acute detail.

This is a most impressive shot, and I thank you for sharing it amongst your art here on dA, for us to see and take delight in.

This is stunning, the color, the detail... I am speechless. Incredibly bold. Personally I think it's very difficult to pull off this kind of shot because it's very strong and almost aggressive. But I believe the asymmetry of the shot helps soften up the photograph as you present the smooth detailing of the outer petals. Wonderful, simply fantastic!

AMAZING macro! And I love your front page "colour" theme. Everyone will now definitely be able to see how much effort you put into your work :)
