    Nice colour, but the whole scene seems a little chaotic and gives no place for the eyes to rest upon.
    Also it seems a little overexposed...

    Well its beautiful spray of Orchids but there too many out of focus elements for me.

    Thanks for comments.
    Yes, I stretched saturation a bit more in post process.

    Perhaps my broken eyes are seeing this wrong... But is there a focal point that I can't see.

    It hurts my head. But then again, I have health issues... So that might be just me.

    Detail Overload! Your focus is being lost by the flowers on top

    Thanks for critics.
    The idea was to focus on the deep inside of layers. Whereby letting foreground elements stay blurry & ambiguous.
    However, keeping saturation in control (hence revealing more details in blurry zone) could fix the focus issue little bit.

    It's hard to see the focus but I understand what you are trying to do here. I hope you post the improved version.

    Limited DOF really hurts the overall image, same for the over saturation. The colors seem just too cooked. Also the green vines running all through the photograph is just another confusing element.
