Welcome to the site, Schafaque and thanks for the upload.

I like the colours here - the oranges and light browns. The green plant and the off-white ones in the foreground all tone together nicely to create a harmonious whole. The orange plant looks a bit dried up and that texture comes across well.

I wonder though about the composition. There isn't any clear focal point around which the composition is arranged. I can see why you were attracted to this plant but I wonder whether it might have been better to take a wider shot with this plant as the focal point and the other plants around it acting as a support.

It could do with a bit of sharpening too - see mod. I have applied unsharp mask at about 70%. It pays to sharpen your shots as the final step in the preparation for uploading to the site. Sometimes the work of resizing for the site introduces loss of sharpness.

I hope you enjoy the site and good luck with your photography.

Best wishes

Hello Catherine thanks for your encouraging comment. Well I tried to take a picture of this flower within the whole composition too. I will add it later on but I know I should work and try harder...
Best regards,
