This image, though having potential, is quite washed out on my screen. Drop the lightness down on it some so we see more detail in the highlights. I am sure there is detail there to be had. When done, repost so we can truly enjoy the image!

I have no trouble seeing it on my screen, a nice shot, I have both the K200d and the A50 1.7, I think I would crop it tighter, perhaps more portrait or square format, the stem leads you nicely to the subject but for some reason I find the background a bit distracting so cropping would reduce that a bit.

Kind regards

I think it is overall a good shot. It could be improved either by giving some negative space on the right or getting close to the flower

You've got a very nice blur in the background. Your rose, though, is a little out of focus. It's almost only the raindrop that are in focus. Trim it a little bit more next time.

I like the angle of the flower, the colors and the bokeh. But since this is the Critique section I have to say that the green front blur from that leaf is quite distracting...
