I thought I'd get some mileage out of some flowers I bought for my wife (and no, I wasn't apologising for anything). Comments &critiques appreciated. Not sure if I should get rid of the leaf, etc. in the bottom right or not.

Nice composition and colours. Seems a tad soft though.

Thanks guys, and thanks for the edit Boily - was that simply a sharpen filter? It has made the world of difference.

Good idea, that's usually where I get my flower shots from. I normally would get something that's ready to bloom not fully bloomed yet, so my wife gets to enjoy the new blooms, and then after a couple of days, I'll take them to shoot pictures of them.

I'll give you the C&C that I learned from here when I first started doing and putting my flower shots for C&C. Nice composition, but the flower could be a little sharper. The Leaf in the bottom right is not a problem BUT the brown line that runs diagonal to that leaf you may have to pay some attention to. Just thought I'd share my thoughts on with you. Best regards, keep em coming.

Hey Frenchy, if you weren't apologizing, why did you buy the missus flowers? Did you break something? Tell her that her bum looked big? C'mon this is really intriguing . . .
