Nice composition and lighting, but the image seems quite underexposed overall.

Reminds me of a picture on a poster for a movie. ‘The alien flower from the Darkness’ or some such. HA!:) It is beautiful. Very much a feeling of presence. More than what it is, sort of religious in nature. I love this picture!10+
PS Hope I didn’t offend.

I think a little tighter composition and maybe a touch more light would work nicely here :)

christmas cactus I think...there is a bit too much light on top of bloom and a bit more needed elsewhere, interesting composition and idea
