A touch more DOF in terms of front focus especially. I don't think it spoils this image. I like the composition. There is a nice overall diagonal line formed by the pedals (bottom right to top left). A nice variations of tones. Texture in the pedals is quite defined. Good smooth boken. Nicely cropped. Some may suggest it be sharpened. Personally... I think alot of people over do it until it looks starts to look artificial. I have changed my opinion on signatures. In this case... it detracts from the image. I would matt and border this electronically. Then signed the matt. It's so low resolution, no one will be able to profit from it anyways. Let them enjoy it in its full majesty.

Overall... A TRUE KEEPER... Celebrate your victory

The blown petals do not detract from this nicely taken shot. More so implying the the Spring sunlight. Simple but effective composition.

thumbs up from me.

i think its a nice shot. I do like the composition and the dof works great for me. I also notice the petals are alil blown out but i dont really see that taking anything away from the image

I do think the image is a little grainy and wouldnt mind seeing a smoother take on it.
