I suspect flowers won't score all that well because there'll be a lot of them, but I love the shape of the greenery and the checkered effect on the flower. Plus the light is nice. Could have used a smidge more DOF, I think.

PP - converted from RAW, cloned out a bright leaf, colored/cloned out another blossom, levels, Topaz Texture Effects, resized, Topaz SharpenAI, blurred background and lower leaves more.

Delicate and lovely.

I'd have cropped the top to alllllmost the top of that splendid leaf.
