True, that all five are excellent.  Number one was the one I liked the most for the delicate details and the rendering.  Number 4 would be my second choice because the color really glows and illustrates why a good painting is more beautiful than a good photo; it transcends the literalism of a photograph and gives a glimpse of what the painter experienced.    :thankyou:

Is there a way to watch how the voting is going with a graph scale or something?
All I see at the top is my vote.
I'd like to be sitting in the rooting gallery, now that I've already voted.

 :thankyou:

I voted for ValW rose # 4.  Very realistic and the stem and the leaves are incredibly natural.  Also, I think the spotlight effect was very well accomplished, and the petals at the back of the flower at the bottom are the "right" shadow color.  Also the contrast with the dark background was very dramatic, really made the flower stand out. Congratulations to ALL.

I voted for number 4 - I myself paint a lot of flowers in watercolour and oil and this was hands down the best but well done to everyone - a very high standard

Tough task! The paintings are brilliant! At the beginning I thought what criteria can be used so to help decision making? Probably these could be: volume, texture, choice of background, alternations from the original source, color interpretation, etc. But I still can not decide. Each painting has something supreme. Finally I approached this differently. Which painting I would hang on my wall? I would choose painting 2. It has softened background, moderate expression of texture and brightness. That is me.

After perusing all five compositions for shadowing, contrast, choice of colours, realism, and originality (of style) I cast my vote.  It was very difficult as they all have great qualities in and of themselves.  Each artist should be very proud.  Congratulations to ALL artists that completed the rose.    :flowers: :clap: :clap:

Hi - I really liked what no 4 has achieved in the detailing on the petals, shading, light direction and tonal color. The leaves are just beautiful and so well portrayed. The only thing I feel is that the background is a little harsh and therefore makes the overall  painting a little 'too good'. (Is this possible?) To me a combination of number 4 flower with the background of no 5 would work rather well.

 I'm only a humble beginner and appreciate everyone's artwork. Congratulations to you all!

i'm amazed at the range of different yellows and pinks. How much difference does the photography of the paintings make do you think?

Thanks Nolan and Dennis for naming me among the finalists.  All the entrants did remarkable work so I congratulate them all. I have learnt a lot with your help and excellent teaching methods and I enjoyed the project. Thanks all  you guys for posting wonderful comments.
