Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that meets the challenge well.

Welcome to DPC Erin and what a way to start! This is a great composition with the emphasis well and truly on the flower against the white sands and rich blue sky it works really well. I might have been tempted to put the flower on the lower right third hotspot but it still works here. Part of me wishes I could see all of the shadow and its a shame the sands are not undisturbed the feeling of total isolation would have been complete then. I like what you’ve done here and look forward to seeing more entried from you soon, well done Erin
