Greetings from the Critque Club
I must first congratulate you on your first ribbon and well deserved.

So many aspects of this photo jump out at me as I look at this image, the lighting is that beautiful gold that many so try so hard to get, and the shallow depth of field makes it that much warmer for the eye to get lost looking at all the details and is a sharp contrast from most ribbon winners here that have very vibrant colors. I know that many people enjoyed the composition you chose and I think it is because it plays with the rule of thirds very well. Where those thirds intersect in the top left and bottom right are filled with soft out of focus areas while the top right and and bottom left have lines for the eye to catch so that you feel that you are swimming in the photo as so many people touched upon. The border works and all your tones are balanced across the whole image. Really a great entry and ribbon winner and congratulations! I am having a hard time finding anything to critique so I will just say Congratulations again and if you have any questions feel free to PM me.

The subdued colors and shades here are exceptional. This makes me think of old lace and elegance. Nicely done. Bumping up.

Very cool and ethereal. My favorite so far. The artfulness is quite eyecatching. I like the monochromatic theme - the flowers are almost like ballerina tutus turned upside down. Nice DOF. I like the abstractness.

Very impressive and unique. Fantastic mix of colors and shapes.
