    I wouldn't.
    It's a bit busy and the shadows don't exactly work in it's favor.

    maybe not frame and hang but I quite like the contrast between very yellow rose and the dark background :)

    The flower is perfectly exposed, but unfortunately that leaves the rest of the stuff (mostly in shadows from the looks of it) underexposed by about 3 stops.

    Surely that is the idea, the dark shadows highlight the flower

    Yeah I guess I wasn't very clear on what I meant. :) Shadows are good, but the whole area around the flower looks underexposed, including the greenery that's still lit.

    tad dark for my tastes. in this case, the shadows don't accentuate the flower, they just draw more attention to themselves.

    The idea is nice, of having the bright flower with the dark background, but unfortunately the background is too dark, and thus you lose detail in the shadow areas.

    I must need a moniter adjustment.... I'm seeing an overexposed image, losing detail in the highlights with muddy shadows.

    Regardless, this image needs something else... maybe some creative cropping.

    Good idea though.
