Obviously the quality of this picture is remarkable. The definition, the level of light and detail are very good. May I just point out that something more cutting and placing the flower over to the right, allow for a more pleasant visual impression, based on a more balanced composition. Of course, this is a personal opinion and, as I said, the technical quality of the picture is flawless.
