Critique Club Review:

Focus and depth of field are very good.

There is not a lot of purple here. I don't think the picture has to be all purple to meet the challenge. However, the red so overpowers the purple, that it almost erradicates it. Hence the comments you received below.

I find myself wondering what colors these flowers really were. I'm not a flower expert by any means, but the colors here just don't look natural. Things that don't look natural, often don't score as well as things that do; even though the latter image may be a better image. If these are the real colors, then I want some.

Overall a nice composition.

I like the composition of your photograph. However, the colors more likely resemble red tones. I do not see purple in the subject.

Nice flowers, but I don't really like the glassy (or whatever it is) backround.

These look more red than purple, but there is purple about them.
