    Personally, I don't like the watermark and I guess I would've tried to get the whole flower. Neat looking flower though.

    Almost took that same picture although not as close up. I only have a p&s but we have a passion fruit vine all over our fence.
    Nice close up... But the watermark is too deterring. Hard to "enjoy" the photo with such a heavy watermark.

    If I REALLY wanted to take it or someone else did, then I wouldn't have a problem of doing it. Just trying to make a point though. This took me 5 min and is a VERY rough edit. If it were higher resolution, it would be more realisic and I would have more pixels to work with. Again, just trying to make a point
    No watermark in the top left side.......

    That's the problem with posting pictures on the internet. If it's good, someone will take it. However, if you post it small enough (about the same size you did), they can't actually do much. So I'd say your picture is safe.

    For composition, I wouldn't have cut the bottom of the circular part of the flower off. The lighting is nice, and I like your chosen DOF.

    Passion fruit flower, eh? Very interesting... I might have to get me one of those...

    I don't care much for the crop in this one, and yeah... that watermark is a train wreck. :) Sorry. :)
