From the Critique Club :
Great shot!
As a flower lover and shooter, I can appreciate this one even more.
Obviously by your score, your photo was well liked.
You did a great job achieving soft focus without making the flower look blurry.
Lighting and composition were good, especially the stem placed in the corner. You achieved a nice deep black background and picked a nice simple border to complete this.

It's hard to critique the good ones :)

lovely - gerberas are perhaps the most beautiful of flowers, such a lovely colour too.

Excellent lighting/exposure control to maintain highlight detail on all but MAYBE one petal; just sharp enough to see the detail.

very beautiful. The colors muted to soften the mood for this soft focus challenge. Well done.

Very nice, good colours, nice contrast between the stalk and the petals. At first the pale orange seemed a little bright, but it's nice against the green of the stalk. Th eborder is good too, nice idea to make it the same colour as the petals. 10 / 10

Wish I knew why this is so good - colour, composition, lighting, background, soft focus, all just right, wish I could produce a picture like this!

This classic soft focus image is wonderful. Black background works well and the framing is fantastic. Lighting is superb.

Very pretty. I like the angle at which you have the flower coming from the corner. The petals are bright yet soft and with the slight droop sets up a very fragile mood. I like that the green stem is darker and does not overpower or distract from the wonderful flowerhead. A classic style and look, i like it.
