This is a beautiful take, Barbara. That Orton effect is really effective...and the bright pink, too !!!
An enlivening shot !

Tasty! The colour reminds me jellies :) And those petals farther from the centre look like painted by water colours. I like the unusual composition, bright and vivid colours, bright lightning and the overall clarity. It's a real eye candy.
