The picture seems dull to me, maybe mist the flower next time.

Bad focus

there's lot's of competition with this type of image, so the standards are pretty high. it looks like this rose is a bit past it's prime, with browning edges on the petals. The shot is out of focus a bit (or was it deliberately soft?) and the lighting is not very dynamic. Keep at it...if you don't have a DSLR it is very hard to do closeups and macros.

A little soft on the focus. Could use a boost of contrast to get the color to pop out better. Interesting perspective in a challenge full of simular shots.

If the subject was sharp it would help this pic tremendously.

Pretty flower, but the colors seem a little flat and it could use a touch of sharpening.

focus appears to be a bit off

tatty edges spoil this, close needs perfection.

Not sharp enough focus, pretty color though

Very nice colors on this shot. It almost appears as some kind of artistic filter has been used on this photo, which loses some of the detail. Good composition and subject choice.

IMHO the lighting is flat, needs more contrast. Also focus is a little to soft for my taste.

Seems a bit out of focus to me

I'd like to see different lighting with this flower.I do like the coloring.

Beatiful colors. Nice shadowing and not harsh lighting, but the overall effect doesn't have the crisp detail I'm lookiung for in a macro. Maybe work on the sharpness a bit.

picture is a little soft so maybe a diffusion or something like that would have helped. I think the lighting is also a little flat.
