    Dicentra species but I wouldn't like to guess which variety that is.

    Initially, I did wonder about the flower head going in the direction of the photo edge instead of towards the centre. But as it is decreasing in size as it nears the edge I think it still works well.

    Nice shot. Interessting flower. I never saw one before.
    Maybe mirror it horizontally so the eye is not drawn outwards of the picture so fast.

    I would like to see a greater range of contrast in the reds. Seems to me, both the red and green are almost exactly matched in tonal range. If you take your color sampler and click on the darkest red, then drag the color mixer down to the green with the matching sampler left on the point of the red color, you will see they are virtually the same. Bringing the green up won't do anything but further fade out the reds.

    I'd do a square crop and eliminate most of the left side of the frame as it is not doing anything to help the shot. This was done in about two minutes, so not thebest job, but nearer to where I think you should be.

    Beautiful shot. Great composition and lighting. The branch has a perfect symmetrical arch too.
