Greetings from the Critique Club

The first thing that strikes me about this photo is the gentle simplicity of it. The soft pastel-like colours give it a texture you can almost feel. The shadow underneath enhances the appearance of depth. The white background is most appropriate for the subject matter. The green border is a nice touch that matches the stem of the flower. All in all an excellent composition and I cant find anything I would change about it.

Nice. Very soft and great white background. A littel harsh on the side light.

Delicate, soft and beautiful. Flowers, especially ones captured like this are always in demand.

Nice subtle shot...would prefer without the border. Good Luck.

Soft and delicate and the frame is very nice....

I think for this kind of shot to work, it either needs no shadows or a very dramatic shadow. This has an average shadow and looks a bit faded to me.

I would be incredibly surprised if I don't see this on a greeting card in 6 months time. My one and only ten for the challenge - as most saleable image.

It's a really lovely photo and it is lovely art. Since I do not have graphic design background I find myself less enamored of photos with vast white spaces. And my curiosity is aroused about whether it has crossed the threshold from photo to digital art when over 15% of the area of the 'photo' is art. This is certainly one of the more impactful images in this challenge, yet I would have strong reservations about asserting it is the best photo.

Beautiful soft picture. Perfect border. Good Job.

Very pretty.

Great shot, it just seems a little too bright on the right of the photo (the light source).

Would've looked better uncut
