*Critique Club*
This is a really nice looking flower, and I think you did a great job of capturing it's beauty.
The color is really great. I think that the lighting was a factor in helping to bring out the color. The lighting conditions look to have been working with you this day, however, I do think that maybe a bit of added lighting in the lower portion of the shot would help even more to bring out MORE color.
Some people just LOOK for things to complain about. And I'm one of them. *wink* The water does not bother me. I think it creates some really visually appealing effects in the very center. What does seem strange to me though, is that there is kind of a row of a few white dots in the background, right between the petal on the right, and the center yellow part. Not sure what that is, but when noticed, I find it to be a bit of a distraction.
One more thing is the crop. You have a really tight crop on the petal to the right, however you give the petal on the left a bit more room to breathe. I wonder if you could give the right side just a slice more space between the edge and the petal.
The background is great. You have blurred it very nicely, and I think that with the exception of those 3 freaky dots, that the background works nicely to help the color really pop out.
Focus is excellent. Great DOF. You show us some really great detail in the flower.
A very nice shot, of a very pretty flower. Good job.

Very pretty image. Background and lighting are terrific. Should do well in the challenge. I'm going to bet I know whose image this is simply because I am beginning to recognise your style. I'll let you know if I am right after the challenge is over.

A bit too much water for me. Colors nice though.

No idea what the title means...this looks like some sort of bougainvillea, but it's an interesting viewpoint and the tiny water bubbles are very good. Background digital manipulation looks a bit overdone and sharp line of petal agains the background is a bit too sharply defined. Use of negative space is good, but the bottom of the image lacks some oomph due to it's being out of focus. Good effort...lots of potential here. ~Renee

Great composition, focus and colors. The lighting from above is perhaps a little harsh. Well done and good luck.

Great focus and colors, and very effective use of depth of field, here.

Wonderful detail and a very dramatic shot with the charcoal background. I do think that you need some fill light to lighten the petal closest to the camera at the bottom of the picture.

A lovely image and I like the DOF and composition and the variation of colour in the background. The way the water droplets catch the light is very appealing. I'd like just a touch more light in the lower left area of the flower.

But your shot is... really perfect. Wonderful.

nice shot... but dof is a little shallow.... could have looked really nice to crop off the bottom 1/3 (blur distracts) and throw in some negitive space at the top to emphise the part that is in focus
