...yes. I like those kinds of flowers, they are very photogenic. I planted a bunch of morning glory flowers, and the vines are always reaching out to grab something. I found that they won't wrap around another morning glory's leaves 3 inches away, but will only wrap around the bamboo plant that is 1 foot away 0.0 crazy plants.
...anyway, nice job with the lighting and it's nice that nothing is blown out.

The brilliant blue against the black bg is quite effective. I want to see more of the flower (face and stem), so I suggest cropping it in portrait as opposed to landscape.

Simple idea, well carried out.

The only thing I would consider changing is showing less of the lamp. I think it currently dominates the picture too much.
