Sorry, I have been 0ut of town F0R my husbands b-day.
Very nice detail here. Perhaps you can enhance this more by selecting the BG between each petal and desaturating it to give more contrast between the flower and the BG. (You don't have to go -100 just find a happy medium for each one)Rotating the image by 180 degrees would add favourably to the composition.

Wonderful capture, I like the bright colors and I just don't have any ideas as to make it any better:)

Your flower shots are always so very beautiful! The only suggestion that I would make is to try the same shot at a slightly lower angle. I'm not sure why but I find that 98% of the time a flower or flowers look much better from directly accross or slightly below the flower's position.

Wonderful details - all those little hairs...

As I look at this a couple of things come to mind...
1. if it were rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise that would put the left side at the bottom and give the appearance of radiating upward. A little more crop, just on the one side(left as it sits now), would emphasize the radiating, too.
2. The yellow seems to have a tinge of green in it. I think it is the hues that will change that. (I always have to experiment a bit to see which (hues or saturation) will do what I want.)

wonderful colors mand detail. I think if you were to crop the bottom and let to bring the center to the lower left third section, the image would pop more.

I'm told that centered works in what is called a "wheel and spoke" presentation (like this one) and the square crop helps with that too. The color is good and the details are lovely. I guess the only thing I might would suggest is rotate it so it's facing up - It may not work but I'm not sure. Still, great image and wonderful colors and details.

This is nice. The image is somewhat noisy in the green areas, perhaps run a noise remover or use some blur. Possibly increase contrast to get a little more detail on the petals. Maybe use the healing brush to remove some of the white spots in the brown area in the center, as well as some of the dark areas on the petals.
