Greetings from the Critique Club...

I was not able to vote on this challenge, but if I had, I probably would have given you a 5 or 6.

My first thought is I really like the gradation in colour in the background. The layering of the plant is also nice, as it allows us to focus on the one stem/branch since it is sharp compared to the other. The composition might use a little work; I feel as if I want to see more of the plant. Having a little more information on the left would alleviate this. It is a nice image, but has room for improvement.

If you need any clarification on any of my comments, please feel free to pm me. It might take some time for me to get back to you.

The details and the colors are beautiful. I like the bokeh too, but i think it should be with less details! Great shot though!

I love the subtle graduation from blue to green.

Your light is really very nice. Your focus is either a bit soft or the lens you used is not very good because it has made your focus seem a bit soft. Placement of the main subject, the flower, could be improved, IMO. Perhaps a tad more left. Your colours here are a nice blend... yellow and blue make green... very complimentary.
