First of all I must say you did an amazing work on this one.
I simply love this creative concept and idea, as well as how you present it. I've seen many conceptual deviations on this theme but your work has it's own impression on the viewer that makes it hard to forget once seen.
I also really like the color contrast between the red-white-yellow. I think it gives the viewer a soft, calm and wonderful atmosphere.
Since this is a macro work, I know how hard it is to capture everything in it's clear and sharp state. I only wish the heart would be more clear to see. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the lightening. I think it could be on some parts (specially the white ones) a bit darker, so it wouldn't be overexposed.
As said before, it's a wonderful macro work. :)
What do you think?

which begs the question some times:
Are you really in love, or are you in love with love?
