This is the second flower from the same stem as yesterday's upload.
For me this works. But having had a good look at it again last night I was unsure of that very bright and patterned petal being dead centre. So I've cropped from the left and uploaded a second version. I'd be grateful for feedback as to which works best as a composition.
Thanks for looking
Helen
