I like this photo a lot. Great job with the leading line up to the bud (?) Nice use of the greens with the dark black background, and very sharp photo!

I like this very unique subject, and you did an excellent job photographing it. My one complaint would be that the green lily pad directly behind the denuded flower competes with the subject. I don't know if it were possible, but if you could have gotten a higher angle on the flower so that the black water was behind it and the lily pads framed it more, it would have really blown me away.

The colors are very cute and cheery, and that lily looks like a shower head. :-) Unusual subject matter, very different from others who would choose to shoot the flower in bloom-- interesting.

The composition feels a little off to me, there are perhaps too many out of foucs green shapes that dominate the right side of the photo? They don't seem well balanced with the focused left hand side.
