Great colour. It might have been better to shoot with the flower 100% against the dark green background. (is that a forest?)

I know its givens some variation but the sky is blown out and its brightness seems to compete with the flower for attention.

I agree with Pete. But you got very nice detail on the flowers!

Unfortunately this was taken on a cloudy overcast day from a very low position and limited access to the bloom. The background is actually an evergreen hedge some 6 feet high. The opportunities for controlled photography were virtually nil with macro setting and this was essentially a point and shoot occasion. I accept Pete's comments but I got what the camera saw, I was not even looking through the viewfinder.
