Lovely tactile feel to this pic. One of my favourite roses in this challenge.

The colors seem a little muted to me, could use a little more pop.

I like the side lighting on this...creates a lot of dimension. Maybe a little fill lighting would brighten everything and really make the yellow shine.

Excellent lighting and focus... the framing is well done.

Flowers, in general, always have an inherent beauty to them and this one is no different. I like the choice of the yellow rather than the typical red/pink. The straight-on view is nice, it gives the image some further interest with the detailing of all the folds and turns from the petals. That said, the lighting is a bit off - the lower left hand corner has some nice lighting aspects, but I think the shadowing on the rest of the flower detracts from what you're trying to show. The title "Golden Anniversary" brings to mind a richness of color (due to the gold) and unfortunately the color is a bit dulled in this picture. I think experimenting with different light sources and additional fill lights might help this out! It also looks as if a gaussian blur was applied maybe? I'm not sure if that effect helps the image - I think crisp images when macroesque shots are created are the best bet - this is definitely just my opinion though. I gave a 4.

top left hand corner is a no no...you should of cropped it out..it fills the frame well on the bottom though...good focus.

The detail is good, but the composition is a bit centered.
