I tried to take this photo outside and show all the flower's body but i didn't get good results, then i got this fallen leaf and flower and did another macro shot!
I really don't know what score i will get, but i really liked this shot, it's probably my best until now! The big problem i see is that left part whithout focus, which is ugly, but let's see!

Levels, Color balance and resize!

Thank you for the oportunity!

I agree with the other comments. Also you could bring out more detail by increasing the contrast and using Unsharp Mask or Smart Sharpen (I see you have CS4). Otherwise you did very well with a point and shoot camera. I usually comment on shots that need major help, that I feel I can provide some constructive criticism or that really stand out and this one didn't do any of those to me. I gave you a 6.

I gave it a 6, and pressed on because I concentrate more with commenting on the ones I vote low.

I think the colors and detail are nice, and I found it pleasing. I suspect the bigges flaw may be the composition. It is just sort of divided in the middle, without my eye being really led to any part of the image as the central subject.

It's difficult to see the structure of the flower, partly because your depth of field is shallow and partly because of the nature of the flower- the way that it is oriented makes it difficult to determine that it is a flower (to me). I usually view an image first and the title second, and in this case I wasn't quite sure what I was looking at until I read the title. Some will penalize for this. Colors and textures are nice though. All in all I think the biggest thing is DoF- more in the top left would be nice to keep the leaf in focus (or flattening the leaf more so it is in the same focal plane).
