      That pretty girl just pops right out of the screen, very nice. Great job on the sharpness here. The background has some distractions in it, I think a shallower dof would of blured out the distracting parts but then you would of lost some of your cool details, so I will just happy with what you captured. Cheers.

      Great shot! Perfect DOF and sharpness and colour and everything. The only tiny, tiny thing is the flower's leaves against the background.. it would be nice if they could stand out a little more..

      very impressive, especially in large. I agree with G0Da that the background is (a little) distracting from the main subject. However the detail on the rose is excellent

      Thanks, I don't think it's quite that good, but it sure was pretty. The color is what caught my eye.

      This is a beautiful photo with very dramatic colors and lighting. The composition is enhanced by the placement of the subject on a diagonal. Emphasis is placed on the subject with a nice contrasting, blured backround. The exposure is right on. The only issue I have is you may have slightly overdone it on the post-process sharpening. Otherwise, excellent work.

      Sublime, I didn't find your comment in time to compete in the contest, I'm sorry. (I sent you an email to that effect.)

      Micky, thanks for the comment, I'm glad you like it. There were two rosebushes and each had about 10 big blooms on them and the color drew me from across the street. I will be looking for these again this spring.

      Thank you. I love this color rose, it's my favorite. Just happened to catch this one after a light rain. I've got a version of it using selective coloring of this one with the background in b/w that I like too.
