Greets from the Critique Club

First off, let me congratulate you on your photo. I loved this, as you probably saw from my original comment. I gave this an 8 to start with.

The colors are amazing and the focus couldn't be better, in my opinion.

My only complaint is the border. Firstly, I'm not a big fan of borders, but I'm not against them either. My issue with the border is that your photo shows through it. So, instead of it being a true border, it's various shades of pink around the edge that you can see through.

Again, I loved the shot.

If you have any questions or comments on this critique, feel free to PM me. And remember to click "This comment was helpful" if it truly was.

Possibly the only flower photo in this challenge which is improved by the use of soft focus as a technique. I think backlighting is the key... Well done - 9 from me even if it is a flower

I like the softness on the edge of the petals and the infocus centre helps to carry this off, only thing I would liked is to see a little more room to the right of the flower (MHO)
