Hi Kaz -

My first impression is that this is a very simple, clean photograph and I'm impressed! The composition is excellent. You've used the stem and the stem shadow to lead the eye into the main subject and the detached petals to frame that subject. The "rule of thirds" fits your composition quite well and I don't think you could have improved it by breaking that rule. The color is beautiful although I would have liked it a little darker. Just an opinion, but I think a darker rendition of this subject would have added some "WOW" to the photograph. I like your border; you've chosen a nice color to complement your subject's color. I seem to detect some slight pixelation/grain as I view your submission so maybe, if possible, a higher resolution might help if you can still stay within the Challenge submission size limits. Considering that pixelation, sharpness is good with a little bit of out-of-focus on the petal closest to the camera but that doesn't distract my eye. There is a white line in the flower which might just be a gap between the petals. That is slightly distracting but I don't find that to be a serious flaw.

Overall, I think this is an excellent, well composed, and well lit photograph. Thanks for entering it!

Regards ... for the Critique Club,

Bob Mahan

Very cool photo! Amazingly vivid colours. Well composed. Border works extremely well. I like the fact this is slightly over-exposed. It boosts the colours well! One of my top 7 for the week! Good luck!

Perfect. Has a commercial feel to it.

neat pic and title, but i think to really fit the title you should have more petals on the surface and less on the flower. that's my thought anyway.

Great hi-key shot. The slight overexposure is more than compensated for by the simplicity it brings. Very nice...

Great idea. I think the white background might make this look more severe than it should, but this is a nice shot.

Nice shot, good composition and colour. a bit over exposure for my taste.

The pulled petals really bring the story of the shot together. Lovely composition, but the white is too bright. It almost hurts to look at the shot. I like the lighting/exposure on the flower itself though.

Brilliant composition with excellent lighting. The image looks slightly washed out to me, though. Still, one of my favorites this week. Great work. 9

Great color. I like the broken petals. The pure background and colored boarder really add to it. (10)

Nice composition but colors too washed out and to obright I think. The yellow petals are alost totally blown out. You probably did that to get a white background. 7 like this with potential for me, i my opinion.

Nice idea ... but not sharper enough ... sorry ...

Overbrightened - but good color.

Pretty. Could use the brightness tunring down a notch or two.

Wonderful! The yellow really looks amazing here. The green stalk just breaks the overkill of yellow perfectly, you can be proud of this one!
