|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I found this single yellow bell coming up through the snow in the Tom McCall Nature preserve. Fritillaria Pudica. Forms 5-15 cm tall flowers on a single erect stem from a white bulb 2.5 cm below ground. Blooms April to May so this little guy is a bit early. Range is Sagebrush and ponderosa pine ecosystems, East of the Cascade, Okanogan County and south to Columbia River Gorge. This one was in the Columbia River Gorge.|

very nice , though dark with a limited depth of focus. ori
i think it needs a little bit low POV to fit the flower front dark BG.
Great close-up, with good color and POV. I do agree with fragman, but this has everything to do with your low f stop and short exposure time. I do like the idea and composition.
One of my favourite flowers, I have tried to grow this superb tiny flower, I think the bulbs look like tiny flying saucers from the classic SF films.
The flower is beautifully captured and looks spot on for colour to me.
For me I personally would of likes more leaf in focus but other would think this is spot on for this same point, very much a personal thing
TFS yours Robert
A very simple shot. Well composed, good exposure and very effective. Nice one! :-)
