Lovely floral image. I especially like the angle and how the viewer can see the center. Image is nicely cropped and the background is not distracting. My only suggestion would be to clone out the stem in the bottom left corner and darken the petals in the upper right corner. I wish the sun wasn't quite as bright on the front petals but you do have some nice detail in the other petals.   Posted: 09/11/2021 13:35:28

I like the shadows on the flower and the sharpness of the central detail. To me it would be nicer if that stem were absent and the one petal were not so bright. I don't know whether I'd like it more if it had been a focus stack so the whole flower could have been sharp. As it is, the sharpness of the center of the flower draws my eye there, and that is a good thing.   Posted: 09/11/2021 18:43:34
