Spikey! They almost have the same shape as mushrooms! Nice work.

Hey Sahar, I like the colors you've got going on here and the shallow depth of field in the second pic is very nice, it looks like your camera does that neat paint brushy effect at big apertures.
That said, on the first pic, I think it might have been a little bit stronger if the tops of the flowers were in the frame, and on the second I think it would be good to have had the foremost flower in focus IMHO. Nice shots though, the purple borders make a statement about the yellowness. Very Happy

I like how the central flower of the second shot is in shadow. Soft,yummy colors too!

Flowers are so strange and beautiful.

Casey, the motion in this photo is well expressed. It is striking and graceful.

thank you Very Happy
I did it by creating a duplicate layer of the flower, blurring it, making it an overlay, reducing the opacity to 50% then applying a 10% zoom radial blur. The shallow depth of field in the original shot already had a kind of spin to it that I wanted to accentuate in order to make it more dreamlike.
It seems to me that different lenses distort the background in different ways at large apertures. Mine tends to create a tunnel vision effect whereas yours has kind of an impressionistic brushy feel.

The pink center is beautiful. Looks like candy.
