I like the quality (especially the sharpness) and texture of this image, but I'm not fond of the d-sat.

The subject is captivating but the placement is weak and the crop may have been tighter to lessen the attention to the outlying leaves. They donothing for the image but take away from this spectacular flower. Still, you gotta 6 from me.

your desaturation and center weighting of this image are very daring.

Its kind strange that half desaturation but as longer you look as nicer it seems. Good luck!

Sorry. Don't see any purple. Maybe it's because I'm color blind but the color isn't very obvious to me.

Good post processing.

In my opinion, the background is distracting, and the colours are too washed out for my taste. This could be improved with a more shallow depth of field and more colour saturation.

The desat works for me.
