Personally I just got overloaded because there were a whole lot of shots of single or a few tulips with black backgrounds. Nothing wrong with your shot in isolation, but (for me) it got clumped in with all the others.
That said, there were lots of these type of shots amongst the highest rated, so obviously not everyone shares my opinion!
This was my favorite, too. All the "flowers on black" shots did nothing for me.
To me it's a great shot ruined by the date stamp.
Heckuva shot! I really don't know how this could be any better. I love the giraffe shot that won, but this one is incredible, too.
I'm guessing a few voters didn't find the HDR all that subtle.
Your entry is one of only two or three entries that actually followed the rules!
I think this is a terrific shot and one of my favorites for sure in the challenge.
Agreed. Superb shot.
