- This is a very nice treatment of a lovely flower that's framed by the leaves and presented against a suitably dark background. The decision to add an artistic treatment was a good one. The maker should consider cropping the left and bottom edges of the frame to eliminate the bud at the bottom of the frame that competes with the flower for the viewer's attention. A bit more space on the right edge of the frame might also be beneficial.
- a beautiful image. Minimal details in the blossom and the stem is out of focus.
- Lovely colors and composition; soft elements distract; need more DOF.
- Love the water droplets. Foreground leaf distracts, consider a vertical composition to eliminate most of it. This would also increase the importance of the bloom. One of my favorite flowers!
