I prefer to place the subject at 3/4 rather than at a quarter of the pic . In any case I think there is too much blur that hinders the wonderful picture of the flower.
A beautiful pic, as Ruth mentioned a little crupping from the left, and in my opinion from the top too, will improve the outcome.
I think that a square formt will fit better the shape of your's subject and will eliminate the blur at the top of the pic.
Hi The Mick, thanks for the compliments, i also liked your pic very much and would have given it a high score. unfortunately i don't vote in chalenges where i also paticipate.thanks again FotoSelect
