    Not sure if there's a real name within your Username that we can use. You've maybe seen that most of us tend to use our real names on here. It makes communication more friendly and CiC is that sort of site. You can go to Edit Profile and enter your proper name under 'Real Name'. Then it will appear underneath your Username in all your posts.

    Anyway, you'll have seen that I've moved your image away from the Competitions section into the Nature & Architecture section.

    Hi Meagan(?),

    Glad you got the photo postng sorted, with a help from Rob.

    This isn't bad compositionally, I like the positioning of the two largeset blooms.

    There are a few background details I'd clone out to simplify and the exposure looks a little under to me.

    I can't see any EXIF data, but the depth of field is quite good too.

    Hope that helps.

    Oh, I nearly forgot; welcome to the CiC forums from ....

    Not a bad composition. The exposure and contrast can be boosted a little to make it more dynamic and punchy. By adding contrast you make the background darker, and the flower petals brighter. Like this...

    Personally I would, if possible, like to see all of the petals on the left side and would be prepared to lose some of top right background bloom to compensate.

    But all in all, there isn't a lot wrong with that photo.

    Thanks everyone for your input, I actually took this with my phone and wanted to see how it looked without editing it. But thanks for the tips.
