Well a big hello from the Critique Club!

Hi stuipdcat

I think you have had a decent idea here that has not reached it's full potential. The focus and depth of field are excellent - you have cerated a soft yet interesting scene in which to view.

The plants look delicate and natural which I always think is a good sign on flower / plant shots.

The areas that let this down are exposure -it look s slightly underexposed by a stop or two. And also the cropping.

If it were me, i would crop into the main flower a tiny bit more, and also adjust the exposure to really bring those greens and whites out.

I feel your final score of 4.5944 is below what it deserved and feel many worse images finished higher than yours.

Out of focus, perhaps you were to close to the image!

I having a bit of trouble finding anything in focus on this image. There is massive foreground blurring on one of the flowers which is very distracting. might want to check the minimum focusing distance of your lens.

unclear focus - what do you want to emphasize?
