I would have liked portrait format more. But that's just personal taste, nothing I can backup with technical arguments. The photo seems a bit grainy which in this case does not work good. It weakens the colour. The lighting however has something dramatic, which I like. -stephan

Very good photo, good color and focus. I like your choice of backgrounds, very nice. Single light source obvious enough. Interest is a tad low and I have no ideas how to add more punch, then again, I'm getting an average of 4, so who am I to judge/suggest that. I'm willing to upgrade your score, from 7 to 8. Swash

Nice lighting

The texture of the background is too noisy. I like the lighting on the flower.

I really like the background you used. I'm can't tell what it is but the rough texture against the delicate flower is a very nice contrast. I like the pink and brown also. Good job.

what kind of surface is that, it's nice, abstract in that i can't figure it out, looks like dark sandpaper. pretty, six for you.

am enjoying texture on the background.... and the gradation of the light on it. It certianly provides interesting contrast to the softer bloom. The flower placement is problematic...... I could see tight cropping on the top and bottom as a solution to my preferences. I love the half moon shape of the flower. 5

I like the flower but not the brown background, the color doesn't look so good, not the specklyness.

This is nice. The reflectionss from the background are a bit distracting from the flower.

great idea an almost a great photo, the background reminds me of a shower door.

Like the texture to the surface infront of the flower. Flower looks 3 dimensional. Good lighting effect and sharp picture. I'm not a 10 giver so it hurts but I must give you one for this.

I can't decide if I like the use of a patterned background or not, but the flower is lit nicely. 6 kathleenm
