Comment by sacredspirit:
for some reason I take a liking to this picture very much. I just wish I knew what part of me it struck so magnificently.

Comment by Artyste:
I gave this a 6, which isn't in my usual "comment" range, unless a shot really stands out. I liked it, but felt the red was a little too strong, and the white a little blown-out, especially on the middle flower. There isn't enough of the hand in the shot to sell the "touch" aspect for a lot of people I think.

Other than that, you've got a nice composition going on, rule of thirds seems to be partly evident, the off-centering gives it life. It's reminiscent of some Asian influences.

Comment by Marjo:
I like the composition of your beautiful orchid. The strong background color works surprisingly well. I didn't vote on the touch challenge but if I did I would have given this a five. I think that the image could be improved by lightly using neat image or noiseware to smooth it out a bit. Also, I am not seeing a strong "touch" connection. As a flower shot (without the hand) it's very nice.

Comment by cpanaioti:
The white flower set against the red background make it stand out quite well, however I think if there was more light you could bring out more detail in the petals. The curve of the stem adds softness to the image.

Also, if the hand was intentional then a little less pressure with the thumb would add to the softness (IMO).

Comment by GoldBerry:
This is a really pretty photo...be proud of it.

For the challenge I'd give it a 5, although it's great and you get the sense of 'touch' it's not as empowering as I personally think was capable for this particular challenge.

Know what I mean?

But I truly like the image...print it big and post it proud.

Comment by Falc:
Well, I gave it a 4 I think, simply because I couln't link it to the theme 'touch'. Remember that when folks are judging and voting they are going to spend a maximum of 30 seconds on each image. If the theme doesn't hit them in the face they are not going to hang around looking for it.

As you get to know DPCers a little you will also find that certain types of images always do badly.

1. Obvious 'snaps'
2. Children, especially photographers own children
3. Cats and other pets
4. Flowers
5. Bugs

OK there are exceptions, where an image in one of these categories is so outstanding it ribbons (see touch challenge),

I think your image does not have enough about the theme of 'touch' and its not an absolutely stunning and different image of a flower. Therefore I suspect you will have been beaten up for two reasons = the low score.

Hope that helps

Comment by lcarterdavis:
I like it better with the hand cropped out. So is the hand there just to satisfy the challenge?
