Hi David, Welcome to Group 63. Glad to have you join us. The name of your purple flower is allium. It is good for flower arrangements. They just finished blooming in my area, Wisconsin.
I see a well focused image with a nicely blurred background. The portrait type format you chose is good for this type of flower. The only suggestion I have for you is to include the entire flower. Maybe step back a little further for a somewhat more interesting composition. Or possibly a closer view as the flower parts are of interest. Again, welcome!

Hi David, welcome to the group. Your subject is a nice color on the not too busy background. That said, the flower is slightly out of focus. You may want to try a different angle to try and eliminate the curb which is distracting. Also the white dot on the right could be addressed in post processing, and watch your cropping not to cut off the edge. Good attempt.   Posted: 06/14/2020 18:31:43

David welcome to the group.
I think Patrick covered the area in need quite well, remember the eye goes to white and bright,so it will take us away from your subject.
would like to know the settings you used for this image.   Posted: 06/22/2020 18:30:47
