Greetings from the Critique Club!

Ooh, I had a Christmas cactus for awhile, before I managed to kill it :-) Great colours and saturation, the water droplets look a little odd on a succulent, but add interest. Composition is spare but I'd rather see that than a shot with too much going on. Great focus, nice and crisp, lighting great. Looks like you used a tripod or shot with a very steady hand.

You finished well in a FS, which is notoriously difficult to do well in, so be proud! Keep up the good work.

Feel free to PM me with any questions,

Love the contrast of the green stem holding the multi-shaded pinks and whites in this blossom, refreshed by the micro droplets. Crisp and beautiful.

very beautiful with the water drops...did you use a black board (paper) for this or did you black out the background...
