I'm trying to determine if this photo is worth printing.
What do you think?

There's a narrow depth of field, with the focus, it seems, on the pistils. It looks like there may also be a slight movement blur. Try a 65 degree motion sharpening. The white is blown out in the stamen, but I think the image overall might benefit from a touch more contrast. Nevertheless, it is a striking quasi-abstract image.

If you've got wall space that calls for this kind of image, why not print it? Take a look at a square crop.

I think it's worth printing for sure. Really beautiful!

Thanks for the comments.
I'm not sure what the "motion blur sharpening" is but I'm willing to try it out.
It was windy and hand held.
I'm having problems with Macro DOF , I shot this at F11, figured it would be deeper, but alas it wasn't.

Very handsome. If it were me, I'd back down the saturation on the red. It's so bright and vibrant, it competes with the flower for the viewer's eye.

Thanks Amber,
Robert, I tried to de-saturate, but I wasn't happy with the result.
If you want to try, here's a full size version

But they ARE bright and vibrant...;)
My similar photo, I am sure we all have one or two...;)

David, mine are all handheld, and yep, a slight breeze will get those stamens moving.
The settings for this were:
1/180
f/8
ISO 400
55mm

I take these at slight darker exposure, then if I need to, edit the light.

you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Take a look at a square crop.

YESS!! I love the colors and the kalidescope feel to it. Square would only make it better!
