    Good sharpness, nice contrasts and colors. Well composed. In my favorites.

    Nice picture, I would have cropped out most of the right side and left only the main flower to strengthen the picture.

    Beautiful shot. I love the smooth, glistening, silky texture of the petals. The clarity and detail are good whilst retaining the delicacy.

    Well executed but not sure about the choice of a white background, nevertheless in my TT.

    a lovely soft colour portrait of the cactus flower.
i would have cropped and concentrated on the stamen end of the plant.

    Wow. The detail in this photo is beautiful; you've even captured the sheen on the petals. The pure white background is a perfect choice. High in my faves.

    Well done with this, the shades of pink blended blending with the white is stunning (and I am not a pink fan). I know that it is possible that this is the position that the flower was in when you photographed it, it is the general perception that plants grow upwards. So it might to worth it to rotate the image 180 degrees. This is still a good image and in my favourites, but there is something awkward about it.

    Love the colour and texture, but the landscape view does not work for me.

    Lovely flower- especially like how you've captured the color gradations in the petals. Consider using a very slight vignette to add some subtle tonal variation to the background.

    Nice colors, could we have seen more of the plant, and still be a macro shot

    I have one, mine has a lot of buds but is not quite yet blooming. I like your picture, the composition, the white background, well done a very nice picture.

    Beautiful, bright colors, great focus and choice of background color. I would have liked to see this from a bit more to my left to get a little fuller view of the bloom. Curious as to what those minor adjustments were???

    Nice soft colours, nice and sharp on the main flower. Cropping closer losing the right and bottom right would be much better.

    Beautiful color, like how captured against white background to highlight the flower even more. Well done.
