Nice photo but I think there is soo much negative space for my liking. Just my opinion though.

Beautiful! The brown weed on left is a bit distracting, competing with the subject... but it's lovely. I think I'd have cropped... easily done to fit the "calender-sized crop", I think. But, it should score well anyway. Lovely focus and dof! (not voting)
