Maybe Peter's right , the red on the frame battles with the beautiful flower image which is the centre of attention. Fantastic image Mike!Smile

This is a stunner, with the white against the deep red, and beautifully sharp throughout.

As to your framing, Mike, it's obviously something you like to do, and you take a colour from the flower as your outer frame colour. However, one thing I learnt was that it's not advisable to do this because it pulls the eye away from your subject. A frame should enhance the image, it shouldn't act as a distraction. I hope you don't mind me saying that.
