    I would definately get lower. And boost the saturation, a macro lens would be good too, I guess.

    The background is a little distracting and make the photo a little busy.

    Maybe shoot at a different angle so that the background objects are far away from your subject.

    For shots like these you need to use a much larger aperture so that you can get a shallower depth of field. I'd even suggest just going wide open to see what you can get. Also, get a lower angle and try some different compositions. I feel like the flower is too far to the side of the frame. For this particular shot, get lower and more in front of the flower (to the left of where you shot it at) so that you can see more of the face of the flower. Try other compositions as well.

    not bad. a simpler background (or shallower DOF).

    Nice job! That is a beautiful flower.

    Now tell us what your thoughts were when taking this lovely image? What did you think about the angle you shot? What about the background? What considerations did you have when framing this stunning composition?

    Regardless of the insinuation of this post, these are great questions to ask yourself when taking a photograph!
