Dawn, this is beautiful!! It's so elegant! Composed and shot to perfection!!! Great strong score, but I would have thought this one would end up on the front page.

Very beautiful colors here. I like the vibrancy. I like the balance and the negative space. I wish the two petals at the bottom had been clipped off so it looked more like the flower was floating in unseen water (they may be reflections but if that's the case one looks missing. The lighting is pretty good, though I wonder if an adjustment would make the flower glow just a bit more against that black background. Also the focus is softer than I'd expect something with such crisp lines and clear contrasts to have. I gave a 6

Beautiful! I would have moved it down just a little bit so it looked like it was climbing into the photograph. Rule of thirds.

Nice light and choice of colours, I would like to have seen a little more negative space to one side of the flower (MHO)

Excellent job on the lighting and color - it's relaxing. The flower looks a bit rotated to the right. I'm not sure if it was done on purpose or not, but I would have preferred it to be straight.
