Pretty flower with pretty colors but I think it is too centered in the frame.

I think the focus is more on that red thing out the left side than the flower itself. also, "Flat" flowers rarely photograph as well as ones that are more 3D.

I see a lot of editing halos close to the flower. I'm afraid it makes it look somewhat pasted into the scene.

slight haloing around the flower petals

I can't tell what it is, but it seems like there is a harsh edge along the petals, which I'm distracted by. I do like the complimentary colors here.

Nice close up image of flower. There is hallow effect on the edges due to shapening. There is a DPC tutorial on it, I found it very useful, please check it out. Good Luck.

good colors...pushed a bit to much....what is the line around the flower?

Very nice.....colorful and vibrant. Perhaps a tad oversharpened such that the flower edges appear surreal. 6

A beautiful flower - would maybe be even better with the flower off centre?:)

Vibrant colours!! The haloing around the petals bothers me a bit.

lovely flower - the rich colors are very inviting - but i wonder about the background on the right - it appears a bit blotchy and noisy
