Basile Pesso from Barcelona, Spain

This is a magnificently vivid picture, the pink is stunning, and the top right bokeh, even if grainy, is superb.
The blurred central yellow part is excellent too and it's clearly your choice to have focused on the central left part, which allows us to admire the wonderful detail of the leaf in this part, and also in other parts of the bottom of the picture.
I don't see why it should have been focused in the centre except to follow a "rule".

Make people will appreciate this image for the feeling of warmth it invokes. I like the way the focus gently softens as we move from the foreground to the background. Well done
