I had some trouble feeling the intent of this image. I'm not sure how to improve it.   Posted: 05/03/2021 18:35:25

Hi Gary,
Good idea. You have the elements of a minimalist image, simplicity, nice colors, contrast, and negative space. It is well exposed. I do wonder if you moved the subject out of the center and placed it in another part of the frame if it would improve the composition a bit. Maybe I would try to place it closer to the bottom left corner. Try flipping and cropping. I would also think about removing the bug to the left to the image. You also captured nice details and texture in the petal.   Posted: 05/04/2021 12:00:41
