A very vibrant lily filling the frame with colour. I noticed your aperture was f/2.8 which is going to give a shallow DOF and this has resulted in only the tips of the petals and stamens being in focus. I would prefer to see more of the bloom in focus, esp. when the whole flower is captured, and it would be worth repeating the shot at around f/13 t0 16: this would need a longer shutter speed and a tripod might be necessary. And of course being outdoors, wind could then be a factor to take into consideration. Try a variety of settings for comparison. Hope you don't feel I am interfering too much, Greg.
Regards, Ronnie.

Yes, I agree with Ronnie, Greg....the image is, to put it plainly, IMHO, out of focus where it should be. I am in no way meaning to be condescending or derogatory....just helpful! The colours are wonderful, and you've composed the image nicely!


Cheers

Phil

Thanks for the advice Ronnie, It definitely lacks somewhat towards the centre but I will definitely be working on longer exposures. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
