About i really love this flower, naturally its a little more subdued, more of a light purple, but this was a result of playing with the levels in PS and i really like how it came out!

since ppl have asked and i forgot to put it: i only have the kit lens to go w/ my camera but i did use close up lenses (+1, +2, +4). i would have to attribute the detail to the 8MP of the Digital Rebel XT.

Congratulations on the photo's being Editor's Choice, Kessia. It's very well deserved. Funny, but it makes me think of an artist's rendition of what life on an alien planet might look like. The colors pop wonderfully.

I'm so glad this made it on the front page because I might have missed it otherwise. What a terrific photo. I love the magical fairy-light that just makes it all glow, especially the 'star' at the center.

The macro detail and colurs are just amazing... I am glad I came upon it, will put in the favourites to admire - and follow? ;)
How did you manage to get such detail, I see you didnt use the macro lens? I always have a problem with getting things sharp without them..

Great macro and yes the colors are really beautiful. Not to mention the composition and texture of this flower. I really like the smoothness of the shot. But wonder what it would look like with more DOF and have everything in focus. Keep up the great work.

Wow.

First of all, congratulations for such a richly deserved award! You have really progressed in the past several months....you should be very happy.

The image is almost surreal...magical like a painting. There are so many elements working together...interacting with each other, and melting into a dance of color and light. The brilliant reds play so well off the changing depth and color of the petals. All just setting the stage for that brilliant "star-fishy" centerpiece! This is sensational....I'll bet you gasped when you got your first full sized viewing! I did..

Bravo, Kessia!
A 7+++++.
And into my faves! ...Brad

Tamara N   {K:2617} 8/15/2005
Wow, cool flower! I really like what you've done here with the soft focus from the really shallow DOF and the very bright colors in the center, and the star itself almost looks like it's glowing. Wonderful!
