a little overexposed methinks. the petals of the flower on the right are blown out a bit. a little creative burning would take care of that. nice composition for the challenge, nice depth, and the focus seems pretty sharp too. good job.

Nice DOF, but there's no "POP" to it. Might try darkening the background a bit. 5

Nice composition, there's a slightly pink colorcast though.

Interesting picture, I think you could have adjusted the levels in PS to show much more of the highlight detail which almost looks blown out the way you've presented it. Adjusting the hue and saturation of the greens would have been good as well, as they look a bit dull here. Shallow dof works well here. More sharpness would have been good... is there any USM here?

To my eye, there is not enough of seperation between main subject and background, creating some confusion even with the narrow DOF you've achieved. I think the problem lies in the lighting and common toning/coloring. I also find the lighting to be too bright on the main flowers...contrast is too high here and you have nearly blown out areas and very dark shadows. A little hard to look at.

Whites appear to be a bit blown out.
