This tulip was the only one in the group that was striped. It was also the only one that never opened. I was actually shooting the one to the left straight on (into the flower), but saw this in the background and found it a more interesting subject.

Greetings from the Critique Club

What a nice, vibrant, very Orange image you have here. And, yes, it scored nicely, so congratulations on that.

You did find an interesting subject and photographed it well. Since this is a critique from the Critique Club, I'll 'nit pic' a little and wonder if it would be even better if that left-hand flower had been a bit closer and a tad behind the the very fine striped tulip. that would concentrate the viewer on the great shades of orange, and reduce some of the slight green stem distraction. this is just musing, you understand. It's fine as is. However, it is always fun to play around after your composition is in the bag. This is when you find the surprises that sometimes work - sometimes not.

So, again, congratulations on your image. Keep 'em coming.

Beautiful flower and crisp detail, but I don't know about the composition chosen here. There is nothing specific I can suggest for improvement, but I suspect this might have stood out even better with a different one. 6
