Now that's a bunch of blue. I like it! It evoked a smile following an hour watching CNN.

Toshie,

Been watching your work in other Forums, thanks for joining us for this challenge.

Blue flowers are not common in nature. Your shot although soft captures the qualities of the flowers very well and the green background adds to the impact.

Nice DOF control.

Personally, I appreciate shots of flowers when given a soft quality. The stunning detail provide with super macro lens and hypersaturated colors are overhyped at times.

Aloha

I like this shot mainly because I like photos of flowers. I don't agree with Selvin on sharpness. I like my photos to be sharp. This shot is good but could be a bit sharper.
The color is more lavender than blue but I'll accept it.

Nice bouquet of blue flowers. As Cal, I too like to see sharp images (primary reason for selling my S2). So, here's my version of it. Hope you don't mind.
