    Lovely pale pink colour looks great against the green background, and the water droplets really add a nice touch.

    I agree with rasheemo that the pic would have more visual impact if the subject matter (the tulip) was larger within the frame, and perhaps not dead centre. Maybe you can try some crops to see if you agree.

    Agree with rasheemo's assessment and add that a larger apeture and shallower DoF would have benefitted the image as well.

    Yeah, a shallower depth of field would have made the flower stand out even more, nice picture though.

    Nice photos and i think that you should stop centering your subjects, try different framing maybe use the rule of thirds.

    All good except that clicking and viewing shows you a pixelated image from having the original aspect ratio distored apparently.
