Thank you Dawn>>>

I really appreciate your observation and comments of my first FCB photo.

Hi Francisco -- glad to see you are applying for FCAS membership.
Here are my observations:

-great sharpness in the bloom. You've captured the textures in the
center of the bloom as well as the surrounding petals.

-natural lighting allows shadows to provide additional 3-D quality.
Nicely done.

-background processing looks good; all spaces are filled with
gradient and I don't see any edge artifacts.

-The gradient choice is unique. I like the top half color, but am
not sure about the green as it tends to "fight" a little with the
green in the stem. But this is purely subjective. I give you
bonus points for creativity.

-the position in the frame works pretty well. I might like to see
a little more stem and height. However, the composition you've
chosen suggests a flower that is a bit tentative, just peeking into
the frame.

I think this is a good overall effort and you've created a pleasing
composition. Good luck with the Committee.
