Nicely composed, lovely shadows and shapes and the sepia toning works well; if I was being 'picky' I'd like a little more space at the top and that solid dark shadow top left is really annoying, but both those issues could be easily dealt with ............ so overall very well done and like it alot.
Another beauty, Russell, I agree with above comments about more light in the middle; I know that is sometimes difficult to achieve with lighting, especially with this sort of colour, but if I've got this problem I sometimes do a well feathered selection of the middle of the flower and use a levels layer on just that selection in ps to achieve the desired result. Not sure about the vignette, don't whether it's the colour or whether I'd prefer the plain background - trial and error on that I think .............. sorry this has turned out a bit long, but you did ask for 'critique'; anyway all of that does not detract from the beauty of the image and the lovely simplicity of it's presentation.
