Tim, are you saying this is an artificial flower? That's incredible if it is!

Nice details throughout. I kept looking at the magentas to see if they were blown but I think it's just the reds against the purples. I sure wish that bright green BG color was even throughtout the image - that would be a great counter to all those pink/red tones!

Hey Tim,
So many questions....so little time:). Man made (artificial flower?)....f5 stacked (focus stacked?).....which really doesn't qualify as a grab shot if yes applies to any of the questions......much though had to go into this to get the excellent look you achieved here!

Hi Guys,
Man made as in king charles spaniel way, grabbed as in handheld shots (2) focus stacked.
Wish I had taken a tripod and carefully got a set of images to stack.
Still pleasing result none the less, after an hour of postprocessing :).
Thanks for comments

Great colors and details. Wish the shadows were a little less black, and that the BG brightness were more evenly distributed. That bright yellow center draws me right in.
