Critique Club Review:

Focus is very good. Depth of field is too deep here. A really soft background could have made for some nice patterns behing the iris. I would love to see this picture redone with a shallower depth of field.

Color saturation and hue are all done well. Nothing looks artifical, or forced.

Lighting, I would have liked a little more light at the base of the plant, and a little darker wall.

Overall a nice pleasing photo.

imo, there is too much light in the background and the attention is distracted from the flower

This would be better with a more attractive, or more blurred, background.

Try blurring background more by adjusting depth of field. The iris leaves are nice, and color of irises is good, but there's too much visual competition from the background.
