Nice colours, Rikki. ;-) Another title along those lines might have been "The Vortex". Nice pattern with the water drops.

Pretty but the drops are a bit distracting from the beautiful flower

This is great. A difficult challenge you've set yourself, but effectively done. A couple of minor criticisms: especially in that central area, your processing has taken things, for me, too far toward the graphic and away from the photographic - it's become more like a simple plain of colours. The large field of red that surrounds it, nicely broken up by those water drops, is tremendously effective though. Overall, I would wish it looked more like a photograph and less like an illustration, but there's a huge amount of good things going on - not least your thorough understanding of the imperatives of this aspect ratio. Well done.

Good composition in filling the frame. But the flash has caused a lot of distracting glowing spots.

Wow!!!! This is STUNNING! One of my favorite flower pictures ever. The water droplets are amazing, and the colors are so pretty! What a wonderful close, fill-the frame composition too! Good luck with this. It's one of my favorites here! 10
