    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    Ok, it's too dark, the flower's centered, jpeg artifacts, the red leaves on the right bother me.

    (I had some nice things to say, but you said be harsh... :) )

    I am new, so I am not going to masacre your photo. I do want to agree tho that the backround is too dark.

    I'd blur the background. Given you already have the shot and changing DOF is out of the question - photoshop will do it (select the flower, invert and apply filter).

    It is too dark, just because colors are subdued dosen't mean it should be hard to see. The focus is a little soft and the composition is off. I would consider cropping in closer, selecting the flower (use the magnetic lasso then Select- Feather - 1 pixel - OK), brighten the flower a little, select - inverse and blur the background slightly.
