Definite zen here, both by challenge definition and my inner measure of zen. I like the contrast between the color of the sky and the flower and I like the dramatic backdrop all those interesting clouds add to the mix. The image looks oddly sharpened to me and the lighting on the flower is a bit harsh IMO. I think this is a nice photo that has some good elements in it but it just doesn't gel together into a 'wow' sort of image for me. I gave a 4

Excellent composition here. I really like how the clouds frame the flower. Nice job.

what the clouds were showing you. 4

This is great. I like how the flower tip is in between the clouds.

Another great idea, done really well.....

I suspect you were going for simplicity, but this feels busy to me. The plant/flower almost looks out of place from it's background, like the light is wrong somehow. That's just my perception.

I think I'm missing something here as I don't feel this fits Zen (MHO)

This almost looks surreal. I think it's because the sky/clouds aren't in focus (you must have used a shallower aperture, say F11 or so?). Not that that is a bad thing as it allows the stem and flower bud pop out a little more. Should be ok for meeting the Zen group for this. ;^) Good luck.

Nice shot. Love how the branch extends into the blue sky.

Great background. Not crazy about the flower.
