Hey there from the Critique Club

Camera Work/Technical: Very nice, crisp focus, great choice of white balance, and a very nice job using the small aperture to really isolate the subject from the background.

Lighting: Your lighting, as I imagine was the intended design, is the main strength of this image. The subtle highlights and shadows work nicely to balance the image, as well as keep the eye moving back and forth through the image.

Composition/Content: Thought a hair too centered, I do like the composition, but I think the content could have been better. As you will notice, flowers are almost over used as subject matter. Their natural beauty makes this almost impossible to pass up, but subjects of commonplace frequently get lower scores despite their overall quality. Looking through the challenge results, I only see one flower shot in the top 20.

My Opinion: I think that your image is better than a few that finished better in the challenge, but I do feel that the score is appropriate. Considering the numbers of flowers that the voters see and rate on each challenge, I think the score is strong. Overall nice work, but try branching out a bit more with your challenge entries. You may be pleasantly surprised with the results, as well as the votes.

Nice job. The simplicity and curve of the stem leading to the purple flower is very nicely done.
