the shadows are quite distracting

when shooting with a white background, you should move the subject away from it. basically, take a white sheet, and put the flower in a vase. Make sur ethe subject and background are far enough away from each other so you don't get a shadow. :) Keep shooting, this is not meant to be a bad comment, only a little tip!

I wonder if you could have used some different lighting technique to get rid of the shadows - otherwise a nice shot.

Simple and effective. Clean idea, well executed. (9)

The light in this shot is too hard, it should be softer.

A little too much in the center for me. 5

A beatifully clear photo. nicely cropped and center. Good exposure. I wonder if moving the backdrop further away might have elliminated those distracting shadows? Perhasp some of the white flowers could have been trimmed to keep everything inside the frame?

THe harsh shadows from the light (flash?) are really killing this. Also the flower being dead center is not very appealing composition-wise.

I don't like the shadow that some of the stems leave on the background, they are confusing to the eye, making it look like it is out of focus; other than that a very nice shot, the rose seems sharp with pleasing color

would have been much better with less frontal flash and a bit of backlighting added for more depth

If I could advise something, I would recommend to put the flower horizontal, or at least away from the background. Because it's so close this pic is spoiled by unnecessary shadows made by flash.
Also using an external source of light would help. Sory if I'm wrong, but I think you used flash and that makes the pic flat.
Still a nice composition.

Very pretty flower. Lighting seems a bit harsh for this subject. Too many shadows.
