Beautiful detail and colour. My one niggle is I feel it's slightly too tightly cropped at the top. What do you think?

@grouser: You are right about the crop. The top of the background was a mess so I took it out. I think that it might be great to get comments, but I think if members see a problem with a picture it is good to mention it, all positive comments are good.

A great blossom shot. I like seeing the plant below the blossom. A fine picture of that ever one will like.

I read some of the previous comments, the flower is cropped tight but many portraits of flowers are so for me its OK. Kudo's to the person that gave a constructive comment. I like that you blew out the background and found a flower with buds in different stages of developing, and flowers already in bloom. Nicely done.

Great shot. I tend to crop tight, so it looked fine to me.
