I love Irises (or are they Irii? - jk)
The prominent leaf in the foreground serves as a strong leading line, drawing my eye to the delicate yellows. Overall contrast seems a bit high and sharpness seems a touch off in my opinion. This close and sharpness have a tough time finding a happy compromise.

Looks like a big purple tongue sticking out at me. Love the clarity in all the right places. Great colors.

Ah, one of my favorite flowers and so hard to photograph. You've done an excellent job here. The slightly tilted perspective is nice and I like how it fills the frame. Maybe just a little room on the right. Details on the petals and the yellow hairy thing in the middle is stunning and the colors are just right.

Brilliant colors! Nice detail in the purple petal. The white helps it to stand out. Great job!

Beautiful detail, especially on that front petal going down. That little yellow hairy part looks just right.

Delicious color! You can hardly go wrong with purple and green. The little burst of yellow is just right.

the background is good and the lower petals with the purple in them are spectacular. The top petals are hot and lost their details. The touch of yellow really pops!

Vivid purples & greens, glowing whites, as though lit from within.

Wonderfully rich colors, and yet the upper petals looks a little translucent. Very nice effect.

Oh my, this is so very well done. Irises have always had a soft spot with me. I think you did magnificently well capturing the subtle tones in the white.
