The two clusters both took the upper and lower parts of the one-third positions of the picture, becoming the centre of attraction of this shot. The green and outfocusedbokehfurther stacks up the importance of the two clusters. More importantly, the color of the petalsis just appealing, blending perfectlywith the other colors in the frame. Should have been more appealingif the framehad been larger in size.

I have it with more background but thought the greens overpowered it. But it is the soft pastels that drew me in. Thanks for your great critique......I learn from them.
