Iris beauty - bright, busy & complex comp w/ lovely strong hd colour, non traditional crop size, for me, may weaken this presentation. 9.

This has to be one of the most spectacular flower shots i have seen. Just loved the cropping and the close up effect it has created. Well done. I hope that it does well for you. 10

Nice colors, but there is just way too much noise for my liking. Maybe this would have looked better by sacrificing some of the sharpness to get rid of the noise. Gorgeous flower though! 5

Wow, wonderful macro. Love the color and the sharpness although I think it may be a touch to complicated of an image. Maybe a slight recompose would have fixed that?

Lovely, you've got a great DOF for that degree of macro - have you stacked your images? :)

A bit overprocessed.

Good colors and composition. I wonder if your ASA/ISO setting was too high to create the noise or you zoomed from too far away? The lighting seems a little flat maybe because of overcast skies? I would study this more under various lighting conditions. Great potential.
