Hey, Carsten!
For such a good score, you sure didn't get many comments so here are my thoughts:
Roses are an obvious symbol of love so ... challenge met.
Composition: I personally don't like having the sides cropped like they are. I'd give them more space or, better yet, crop the bottom up to just above the stem for an interesting macro study of the petals. The water droplets are a nice addition, and I like the angle because it shows the color change of the petals and how they are layered.The color of the bg works nicely with the rose.
Technical: Even with the high f#, focus still seems soft in areas but isn't bothersome. Lighting is nice and soft, but I'd like to see more on the left side. It gets too dark, and the detail and color are lost.
Overall, it's a very nice flower macro. High quality work with very nice colors.

Gorgeous shot, great use of light. Very well exposed, with clear focus and good use of dof. Good luck, bet you'll be towards the top if not in the top 3. 10

Nice coutch with the water drops. I think I'd like to see the whole flower. Nice focus.

Nice shot, nice focus, we can see all the details and the colours are really bright. However, I think the subject is a bit too "framed" and squeezed.
