What a strange flower ! I never saw anything like that before ! They are realy very beautiful. Nice sharp details, good light colors. Nice BG too, it makes the flower stand out very nicely. Well done !

These guys are really hard to shoot. First, its their depth, so you need a good DoF. Second they are so small and don't grow in clusters, so it's hard to come up with a pleasing compostion. But you've done a good job. I've actually never known they flowered from the top of the stem but I can see that clearly in our shot. Congrats,

Hi Janice, lovely colours here. I think I would have preferred if the foreground flowers were in focus, either that or concentrate on one, two or three in the frame. A lowere viewpoint may have also been of use with the background. Nice work.

Beautiful flowers and well done on the effort.
I agree with Paul, concentrating on one.

Very good shot of these lovely flowers. I like the POV and colours here, the details are very good too. I think you could try a portrait framing on this one.

Interesting flowers and very colourful too, very nice view, especially because of the neutral BG!TFS!

This is a difficult one. The SHOOT_STAR flower is of course spectacular. I think I have seen it from Coast to Coast.
Your note suggests Alaska to New Mechiko... Well we have 'em here too on thebEast Coast... perhaps a different species but Dodecatheon for sure. [ I'm not sure how we tell 'em apart! ]

""The genus is largely confined to North America, but also extending a short distance into northeastern Siberia. Common names include Shooting Star, American Cowslip, Mosquito Bills, and Sailor-caps.""
As to the teck aspects of the photo , I would have preferred all the stars in focus.. That is tricky to be sure... But if any should fall outside the DoF I prefer it to be those at the back... An alternative presentation of the material at hand may be possible, eh! Tfs, Jay [ SHOOT_SCORE ]
