Let me start with this: Wow! This is an amazing picture. I love how it looks like a flower from a distance. The contrast is AWESOME! The dark up fron in the foreground is very nice because it leads your eyes into the middle but when you really look at it has amazing detail. The composition is also very nice. I really like all the curves, they make for a really interesting picture. The only thing I would fix is the brightness in the middle. It looks a little bit blown out and flat compare to the rest of the piece. If you do want to leave it I think it would still look very cool because that part looks like fire if you focus on it (In my opinion.)
This image is unbelievable! Without the title, I wouldn't have assumed this is on earth. The structure of the image is very unique. The position of the image is also very professional, making it seem to bloom like a flower. The details from up close gives a lot of movement and structure, so that the entire image flows together. I also love the movement of light. The center starts out bright and moves out into darkness for more contrast. Different shades of red also bring more life out. Overall this is an amazing image to ponder about.
