I like the Stamen shadows on the petals with this one.

I do like the stamen's shadow on the petal and they themselves are very sharp.
It's a tad too dark for me though and the petals aren't that white, Just a tad brighter and it would be perfect, just my opinions of course

Oh and personally I would either crop or clone out the petals in the bottom left corner.

Good shot though and love the shadow

Like it a lot. The shadows and the contrast.
I think the leaves add to pic as well.

Cliff lovely shot, but you know me by now, where is the colour one? and how is your hand?

The hand is fine now Jack, thanks for asking and Ive got a nice shot lined up for you tomorrow (and its colour).

Paul, the image does seem a little dark on here, normally I lighten them a touch before posting, but I forgot in this case. Couldn't make my mind up about the leaves, so I left them on, don't think they distract too much.

Thanks all for your comments
