NOTE: Sorry for this appearing in your message centre again but I had to take the advice of my talented friend :iconhollyw0uld20: and try it with a black border. He's right, it works better :) Thank you for the awesome advice.

I like this one very much since it gives a rainbow style effect without really having any rainbow sequence involved (missing purple/violet but magenta helps with this).

It's like a beautiful illusion; fun and favorable. It really stands out. Even though parts of the flower are in rough shape, it adds to the photo instead of being something negative.

I couldn't find any flaws; this is one amazing shot! I keep seeing a rainbow when there is none. I suppose the soft green against the bright pinks, magenta, peach, and yellow tips make this so.

You have a good knack for getting great close up shots that are interesting and different from other photographers. A+ work! :D (It would look really good on retail products like folders and book covers I think too!)

I like how this almost has a rainbow effect even though it really doesn't. Amazing!

My second favorite flower. I'm not good at critiques, when my roommate is sleeping two feet away, but will put on my to do list for tonight if you can be patient and I learn to critique!

This is a magnificent piece that has inspired me today. I was in an art block of sorts. But then I saw this and it made my day as well as fixed my mind. A very stunning image. I think today I shall create!

Thank you for sharing this work with us.

Best wishes

Definitely one of my favorites from your gallery.


Also, thank you for what you do for dA. I happened to see a comment made by you somewheres across the dAniverse and thought hey she seems cool lets go check out her page. I'm sure there's a lot of good and bad things to deal with in your position.. probably more bad than good, and I appreciate that.

This is absolutely beautiful. Wonderful colours. Really vibrant and uplifting, and I like your choice of composition too.

Thank you :)
kitton Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
The colours are very flashy and eyecatching. The shape of the flower itself is lovely, especially the spaces between the petals. I have to agree with the comment above that the background shapes in the top left do distract a bit from the flower, but its not a huge deal. The texture of the flower itself are very lovely. The cropping is strong and its a nice overall shot.

Thank you again for the well formed critique it's very appreciated :)
Hettar7 Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2005
the colors here are so beautiful, bright, and vibrant. you've managed to capture the texture on the center of the flower so well. makes you think you can almost reach out and touch it. the subtly different colors and shapes in the background area little distracting from the flower though.
FizzyChameleon Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2005   Photographer
That is hands-down one of the most beautiful flower shots I've had the pleasure of viewing - the colours are so rich, bright and vibrant - the composition is spot-on, and the sunny lighting brings this flower to life... its strange.. but I have a real urge to eat it - it looks so damn tasty! help! :-/ :D
