Nicely done Chris, sharp, crisp then the slightly darker mirror image - lovely! personally I'm not keen on the composition/framing, maybe the third at the left and the right could be cropped off to make a portrait framed image? Just my view (maybe)

Thanks John,

Appreciate the critique, is this better, I've also cropped a tad off the top and bottom so the stalk end is out of the frame, Having considered and tried your portrait suggestion, I think a square option perhaps would work better, horses for courses

I like your tighter cropping on the left, in your first alternative above, rather more than the square crop. Not sure about cropping out the end of the stalk though - a bit like an unfinished story.
Regards,
Mike

Beautiful Chris. To chime in on the cropping: the empty blackness brings a lot to the image. You might try a 7:5 or 4:3 crop (but by golly keep the stems in the frame!), which would tighten things up a bit but keep enough air for the flower to breathe.
