Hi Joe,

Let me start with the composition, I like how the flower is centered onto the lower intersection point of the rule of thirds. IMO it makes the photo techinically stronger than the average center weighted photo. Maybe a small crop of negative space on the right hand side but not to much to upset the postioning. The small diagonal created by the stem adds depth to the photo. But there may have been a bit of oversharping on the upper left side close to the petals and the lighting seems a bit harsh there.

The detail in the flower is very nice, the contrasting bulb and veins of the flower are sharp, in focus and very well light. In B&W the veins certainly help five a feeling of texture to the photo.

Overall an excellent photo to have in a collection.
