Thank you for the honest critique.

Very good idea for a calendar, actually! This scored pretty well (in my book, anything over 5.5 is "well") and may have scored even better had your background been a lighter color or had you used a more squarish crop. There appears to be a reflection, but it's somewhat muddied in nature and detracts a bit rather than supports the shot - does that make sense? Darn perfect rose, I might add.

A little bland but probably its natural color. Interesting angle and a good crop.

very good focus, good composition. a less dull background had enhanced the image. border is too playful.
