*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An appealing flower study that is assumed to meet the challenge.

A natural looking capture of a colourful rose with, as you say, perfect symmetry of a bountiful profusion of petals that makes for a frame filling flower. I do like your off-centre crop enabling you to show off that symmetry in the lovely rounded shape that occupies the whole of the left of the frame. I also like the inclusion of the leaf at the top of the frame I think it breaks it up nicely and naturally. And again, I like the fact that t doesn't have the seemingly obligatory water drops that seem to accompany the vast majority of flower images nowadays!

Your chosen aperture is ideal for the image it defines the heart and front of the flower well while enabling it to stand out from that perfectly formed background of symmetrical petals. Yours colours appear natural and not oversaturated as again, is often the case here. There is a possibility here of presenting this in landscape format probably with the heart at the base?

I'm sorry you didn't receive any comments during the challenge, I hope this makes up for it, Sid
