IMO this shot could be improved by cropping out much of the stem (although it is a cool looking stem) and perhaps the flower could be turned only slightly more toward the camera. The bokeh is attractive but a little bit busy - if the sharp purple flower covered a bit more of the surface area in the pic, perhaps the background would be less distracting. My vote was 5.

There are an awful lot of flower shots in this challenge, and unfortunately this one is a little unremarkable. The seperation from the background isn't quite good enough, and the light is non-ideal - I'd prefer to see the flower less dark.

Nice shot of the flower, but too much out of focus background, especially the bright orange leaf and violet spot. Would benefit from a tighter crop.

I'd like this better if the 'subject' flower faced more towards the camera. As is, it sort of blends into the background.

The lighting is a bit harsh. The bright stem makes it hard to see the purple flower well.

Sorry, this is blue on my screen.

I'm not certain that I like the angle of this shot though I appreciate what you were trying to do I think.

The background is a little busy to me.
