Depth of field is too shallow. I can't figure out what I'm looking at. Great colors though.

Lovely bold hues of yellow and oranges seen splashed in the center. With applied imagination one can see the bird/hawklike shape in the center orchid petal. My critique is that the image could be much stronger if you had tightly cropped the image to focus the eye's attention on JUST the petal. There is too much other things going on off to the right and left of the image that calls attention away from the main focus. A tighter crop where the center petal fills the whole frame would have greatly improved the impact of the photo.
