I love this image, the single flower, looks lonely, and it is very thought provoking, i like the blend between complete blue sky and the hay-like brown of the field with the bright red, single flower is marvelous.
Outstanding! I love these types of pictures!
did you pick all the other flowers?
I think the title should be “Flower of Spain.”
nice concept……. great contrast of colours……. looks almost surreal, but very soothing…..
Very sublime. Really super (saturated) colors. I would have composed for a level horizon or would have corrected it PP.
Wonderful composition and shot, but the post-production is over done. The super saturated colors and over-sharpening turn a beautifully subtle moment into something veering on garish and artificial.
Less is more. Love the concept.
Very good job. This is what photography is about. A great artistic result that would sell well in any art gallery.
wow, i almost imagine this is not real. Very nice shoot!
Very effective; I would never have thought of that treatment.
I like this image a lot. My only criticism is the sloping horizon. Easily fixed in Photoshop and will improve the presentation no end.
very interesting shot indeed. The contrasting colors and the blurred background
really good. Take care of the horizon though.
I love it and the way it draws you straight into photo
Beautiful – makes a nice change to see this type of photo.
Nice photo, congratulations
Wonderful colors and combination of colors! The single flower is perfectly exposed.
Poetry, that’s what this is. thank you for sharing it with us. Personally- the horizon is just fine. I mean the earth is round, right? I like being reminded of that.
Nicely done. Usually a horizon of this sort bothers me, but not in this one. It is more of an art than a photograph, and I like the way it is.
Well done and congratulations!!

A striking & imaginative shot!Would make a wonderful painting.
The lone flower. How simple and beautiful. Well done!
Very nice with the lone flower.
HOW AMAZING…..GOOD EYE.
Vaya foto mÃ¡s wapa tÃo… Enhorabuena!!
WOW WOW WOW. The Colors are amazing. Well done
I like the sloping horizon. If you “fix” it in Photoshop, then you have created a false reality. Nature and life in general is imperfect, yet it is that imperfection that really is actually perfect.
Very beautiful work.
I too like the horizon in the image. Not only does it remind us that we are not perfect, nor are our surroundings, but at the same token, with the way the flower is leaning to the right, it’d look exceptionally off if the horizon were straight. I like it as is. Very beautiful image!

I have rarely seen truly level horizons in the real world. The movement of the grass, the one brilliant flower, the colors, all make for a wonderful photo. Well done!
Very artsy! Simply stunning & stunningly simple!
simply & beautiful.. great shot
simple & beautiful shot mate..
Very original. Like it
I love the simplicity of the photo.. the flower looks alone (not lonely) in the crowd
A wonderful image. Well composed and thought out.
Wow is right!! A shot so simply but very very beautiful, wonderful colors and terrific shot!
I find this a very romantic image.
its like creativity in simplicity…
Simple yet effective, would love this on a wall.
SO VERY lovely…a genuine great image!
What a shot!
