I am really surprised that you have only had two clicks so far and that mine is the first comment! I think this is a good shot!

The use of light has made the foreground flower semi translucent and so the light pulls your eye into the shot!

I think the problem may be the composition. For me, I want to see the bottom of the mauve flower as thats where your eyes are drawn when you look at the shot.Have a go at visualising it yourself and see where your eyes are drawn to? Using a 150mm lens doesn't help as the magnification is so large on a D30 as its the equivalant of a 240mm lens which means you have to stand a long way back in a studio shot! I use a 105mm lens and thats bad enough!If you had centralised the green stem in the middle to the left hand side, maybe that would have worked better?

Generally though a nice shot! The idea is there and you have used a good dof.

Keep having a go at the flower shots and soon there be as good as your insect shots which I must say are brilliant!

Great lighting Richard. Like ther minimal number of basic colours. I can see where Shaun is coming from but I'm not sure that I agree. I think that the composition works fine. It's stimulated discussion so that can't be bad!

Very nice image, the backlighting is very effective. Maybe (only maybe) had you got all the green detail in the shot it may have had even more impact. I'm a sucker for flowers as you'll see from my pf. keep up the sterling effort

Thank you - your comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated. This was an experimental shot for me where I concentrated mainly on colour.
