    Simple shot but amazing. The rule of third added beauty to the flower. It's my favorite. Wish you luck.

    Beautifully taken and cropped just right. The pp adds to the fragility.

    I would have preferred such a crop, that the flower would lean in to the picture

    A very beautiful picture and perfect for the theme. Simplicity works very well and the off-centered framing / composition adds a lot to it. My #2! Sorry, it also could have easily been my #1 ... but who could compete against that other picture?
Anyway, great shot!

EDIT: I wonder what all this pp was good for? It looks so natural.

    My favorite on this side, although I think this is the best of the flowers shots altogether. Nice comp and subtle color.

    like this one more of a crop on rh side would bring out the flower

    Not sure but think you could have made this a lot better by making it tack sharp. But you've injected some personality and simplicity in a very clean image which places it in my top picks.

    I like the simplicity of this, capturing one lone flower with background blurred out. Also nice clarity on the raindrops on flower.

    well done. in my top two at the moment. lends itself to a greeting card with the space on the right ready for printed words.
