This read real dark on my computer at work. I reopened it in Camera Raw and increased the exposure and fill light then added a layer of Color Curves adjustment and increased the midtones. I think it more palatable now.

Interesting choice in the BG, at first I didn't like it much but after a while it kinda grew on me. The FG lily is taking the interest with its darker petals/shadows--another interesting choice. Good for you.

I haven't awarded a Gilded Lily in a while. Please accept this one from me as a token of my admiring appreciation for your work on this comp.

The background is not quite enough different for the flowers to stand out. 6

Simply beautiful! Great lighting and well arranged. his would've probably done very well in the Orange challenge. I would've preferred a little more breathing space all around the flowers.
