Love the foreground/background contrast. Is that only compression artifacts in the background? Not that it affects the shot but I have seen really high ISO K5 shots here so sure it is not noise. K5 will probably be my next upgrade down the track, so, interested in any quirks.

I think you'll be very surprised and pleased with a Pentax K-5 DSLR

I will be. As a self confessed retail therapy junkie, I will hold off until the new year and the K10 will do for now. I may also make a liar out of myself. *LOVE NEW TOYS*

I like how the light is reflecting off some of the petals while not on others - gives the image real depth and varying textures - well done!

I don't recognize it from any cacti in the s/w USA, but you sure captured the beauty no matter where it came from.
