    ok first thing i noticed... it's very dark.
    But then I started to look at it a bit closer and well I got sort of drawn into it. There's something very nice with the water droplets and the detail in the petals. But unfortunately I think it's too dark for us to appreciate it properly. If you still want to keep it dark looking, maybe try playing around with some levels in PS just to bring out a little bit more detail.

    I second the motion of the above posts. The light that you have here is showing rich texture, but we are left wanting more. I think more lights need to be added. Fill us in on the details.

    I really like all the detail you've captured. Would work great as a background on a webpage, plenty of room for text.

    Thanks for the comments!
    well to be honest the idea behind the photo was "I wanted people wanting more" thats why i shot it so dark, I was looking for a moody effect..
    but i see you points about making it lighter!

    I'd like some more light as well.
