    This was a photo I took for my girlfriends birthday card, but decided to get it framed as a 8x12 print :)

    Canon EOS 300D

    Can't critique this - the sun's moving round and despite my blinds I'm getting a glare onto my monitor... but right now the colours are a bit strong and tend to hurt my eyes. And personally I don't like the red and this pink together, but that's a personal thing only.

    yeah very bright colors. But great DOF and I enjoy the drops of water on the petals. I think that it can be a great gift :)

    Now at night time, without the glare of sunlight on my screen, my opinion about this photo is all different, for now I can see it properly. Maybe I should have kept my mouth shut some 12 hours ago, for I really could not see it properly. The red was absolutely overpowering at the time, and it no longer is now. Now I can see detail, can tell there's also a slightly pinkish part in the top of the petal (that was absolutely invisible to me this morning) and can overall appreciate this photo much much more.
    And yes, it makes a wonderful Valentine Card!

    Nice, soft and loving!!! I like to call the colors "out of gamut". I love that. I trust the colors turned out well in the print. 8 x 12 is an excellent size.

    Wow. Nothing short of amazing. I'd be proud to have that on my wall.

    It's the pushing the extremes that I like about it.

    ... I can't help but think of someone telling picasso that's not how a face looks.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    I really tried to "grunty up" the reds/pinks - to get it looking as vivid as possible. It's worked quite nicely by the sounds of it, although I can see how some may think it is a little over the top.

    Anyway keep the comments coming if anyone has any more - they are much appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Ken
