DOF has to be opened up here. The one main subject not completely in focus here just makes the image look incorrect IMO. The background is also getting in the way a bit. Just a little too confusing.

Wilson- I like the feeling this image implies. Birth, life and then fading death off in the distance. The lighting here is wonderful but I imagine it a little more dramatic. I played in PS and here's my suggestion.
Wunderful picture of a wunderful flower, Wilson. I like the shape of the flower very much. 6/6
Thank you ladies and gents... Jayme, your version definitely has am umpful of pizzazzzzz...! I have to give y'all a feedback here having just recently returned into the loop. Us here in PN (at least in my point of view,) really love that saturated, high contrast, basically dramatic images. Wow, really miss the hook-ups! ^_^
Thank you so far for the feedback... Really appreciate your feedback, everyone. I kneew the moment I captured it that it's a, "Love or Hate" relationship here. I was hoping that the somewhat colorful background would translate all right into the ground of an Asian palace, and that the 3 lotuses would represent Lord Budha's enlightment. I guess it was all a bit too far fetched! ^_^
Nice... Nice shot of a flower with pleasing colourful background.
I think that the flower would have merit to be placed on a darker and more neutral background. There is too much light and shapes behind which are distracting.
Well, I'll go against the concensus and say I like the background, I'm fond of shots like these that try to add a bit of context to a single flower. I might have tried to get more space between the two main lotuses, and increased( or is that decrease?) the DOF just a bit. As for the third lotus, well, I can see the balance it creates, but calling it Three Lotuses is pushing it just a bit, although Two Lotuses and a bit of Pink on a Green Thing just doesn't have the same ring to it...
I like the image. However, to my way of thinking I'd present portriat instead of landscape. Something about the composition does'nt work for me as it is.
Lovely. Great exposure, color, and contrast. Really like the DOF. I'd like the bud on the left to be a little sharper. Other than that, nothing more to offer except I really like it.
Your Back Missed your postings Wilson. I am kind of neutral on this one. It seems to lack the Tsoi magic.
I like the original, but Jayme's version gives this a bit of "zip". I don't mind the background - it's sufficiently blurred as not to distract too much.

This is one of the most wonderful flower images that I've seen in a long time. I love the colors and the out of focus flower in the background and the crop. It's all wonderful!! (And Jayme certainly gives you an interesting idea for coloring of the image, too!)
Glad you like it, Lou Ann. ^_^
"Three Lotuses," at a Thai temple. Unmanipulated, taken at a Thai temple (Wat Prakeao.) Wanted to retain the background for sense of place. Would appreciate your take. Thanks.
