so any and all C&C is welcome
I'd suggest cloning out the bright white crescent in the UL corner and doing some levels/curves adjustments to make the image brighter. It seems to me about 1 or 1 /3 stops under-exposed.
Very nicely composed, but I agree with tirediron, it needs to be brighter.
Definatly on the under exposed side. A little levels adjustment would definatly help.
I don't like how you clipped the right petals on the sides. Either zoom in to the middle and clip most of them or have them all in the shot.
The space above the flower isn't adding much to the image as well, other than distractions.
what's going on with the white shapes in the background?
lol ... the white shapes in the back are actually lights and because the settings was f/1.8 therefore it ended up making a "bokeh" of everything out side of focus.
underexposed and too centrally composed.
All of the above, and the petals are clipped dude, any judge will tell you in a flower shot (unless highly creative) you need all petals in frame.
Not real crazy about the lighting or the composition...don't like that triangle on the right, distracting.
Image could be sharper. 1/30 @ 50mm...did you use a tripod or was this hand held?
