    would have preferred a bit more of the wood to the left and bottom of the rose, putting the rose off centre in the top right and creating a nice bit of negative space... but that's just me... :)
    i like the colours but i love the wood texture :)

    I dont mind the hotspots in the bark so much but on the flower it looks really washed out in spots as far as color is concerned. I think also if you moved the flower out of the center and to one side or the other and or croped it so it wasn't set up panoramic it would allow for a better compisation. If you do things digitally PS's selective color adjustment layer would help on the rose to fill the lighter red white area back in.

    Need to be off centre and crop too tight on top
    IMO the rose should have a shaper focus that the wood background
    but still nice

    great color combi IMO....

    however, the flower seems a little 'chopped' up at the top.
    more wood would be perferred though...... de-centralised the rose perhaps?
