Eryngium (sea holly) maybe. The flower head looks good but the jar looks to be lacking substance, Ann.

Eeee by gum, if you jabbed your finger on one of the leaves?

Love this one Ann, you'll no doubt get lots of comments about how to make it better, but for me I like it and I'd find space on the wall for it suitably framed.

The square crop, background and flower itself are superb, Ann. But I see what Dave means about the bottle.

Also - and this is me being nitpicky - I'd like the stem to be touching the bottom of the bottle and not just hanging around like that. can't please 'em, huh?

I think you either needed stronger lines on the bottle or a softer/lighter look to the flower Ann. You have a very huge contradiction with the two as they are. Like the idea and think portrait mode would tighten the comp up here too.
Congrats on the GEA.Smile

Overall I like this very much. It's always a dilemma deciding what to leave the texture on
and what to reveal and to what extent.
I quite like seeing more detail on the bottle but I love the flower head against that texture.

I also like it as is Ann, there are so many way to process these shots that personal choice has to shine through in the end.

Beautiful use of texture. I would like to see it in a composition not quite as centered. Otherwise, a really fine work.
