Great shot of the main flower head, it stands out well against the black background and the water droplets add some nice texture to the flower. the two buds and the red (claw) in the background don't quite look right - the edges don't seem quite right, for me I think the central flower composition is strong enough without these additional components and they could be lost altogether (in photoshop)

Preciosa composición Mike. Los colores son fabulosos y las gotas de agua resaltan la frescura de la imagen. Buen fondo y agradable presentación.
Felicidades, JL.

Hello Mike,
a very good close up with lots of details. Very well composed, especially that it has such a dark background with only the flowers to focus on. Nice crop and the colors are fabulous.
