- This is a very strong, colorful image. The leaves give the bloom context without being intrusive and the neutral, out-of-focus background helps the bloom stand out. The maker might consider leaving more space around the bloom _ especially at the bottom where one of the petals appear to touch the edge of the frame.
- I like the square crop. I think a dark background would make the blossom pop. The lighting is very harsh and the shadows are very hard.
- Good detail. Composition fills frame. Well executed.
- Superb detail, color & texture in bloom. Nice diagonal composition. Consider cropping left side & leaving slightly more space at top & bottom - tip of bottom petal is slightly cut off & top edge of petal is a bit tight to the edge.
