Hi Sriramu, greetings from the Critique Club!

I really liked your photo, and it got a 6 from me.

As for the technical aspects:

Composition
Great choice of focusing the middle petal instead of the one closest to you, it gives a great sense of perspective.
Also, the breathing space on top help this shot to be very comfortable.

Technique / lighting
The placing of the light is great, just on top of the middle. Perfectly exposed. I do think that it's a bit soft, particularly in the drops, where more sharpness is required.

Processing
Good job on the square crop, the contrast and the colours are very appealing.

Overall
A 7.28 from commentators shows that your abstract macro shot was in line with the tastes of some people. Also, you got a lot of 1 votes, most likely because of the DNMC (Does Not Meet Challenge), as in the rules it was explicit "Here's the catch... the main subject of your photograph may NOT be a flower." , so many people might have voted it low because of that.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
Regards,
Joao

It's not obvious that this is a flower in the garden, its a great image but not in the spirit of the challenge. It got a 5.

Awesome shapes and colors. One large blurry petal in front is unfurtunate.

The color is intensely pretty and I like the shapes of the leaves and all the little drops. Good luck!

What a lovely garden abstract - the dew drops provide really interesting textural detail. I wonder if it might have been worth desaturating the green, or cropping a bit tighter to the top of the 'arches' as the leaf or blade of grass in the background is a bit distracting and takes away a little of the impact (or of course, I guess better still if you had spotted it in composing!)
