|Julie and I drove up to Rowena Crest near the Tom McCall Nature Preserve to try and find some wildflowers. The wind was blowing so hard we tried to find a sheltered valley for a chance to capture the yellow lillies dotting the hillsides. These Purplish/Pink shooting stars stood out on the hillside of yellow, but with the wind I was doubtful I would capture a good shot.|

I believe this variet is called the Poet's Shooting Star (Dodecatheon poeticum) or possibly the Desert Shooting Star (Dodecatheon conjugens):

Very good catch of these Shooting Stars. Good depth and I love the capture of the colors of the flower. You were lucky to catch this flower as still as it was with the wind at Rowena Crest. Very good Capture,
This is a very well saturated color in this flower. Nice job. I really like it.

This is a very aptly titled little flower as it much resembles a 'shooting star' and I am sure that any poet could be well inspired by its beauty.
Excellent composition and the colours are radiant providing much impact to the photo. The DOF is good however; closing the aperture one stop might have aided this shot considerably, to get all of the petals in sharp focus. The BG is very nice and the exposure was well managed allowing the backlight to come through the petals.
Very well done and TFS.

those colors sure wake me up on this rainy morning, the whole monitor comes alive.
Nice macro, sharp details and good colors. A well composed photo.
Your's turned out better than mine with all that wind. Nice focus and color saturation.
