    This is truly beautiful white on pale and just a little interest in the background to keep it from feeling completely blank.

    Suggestions:

    With such a simple image, composition plays a huge role, and although the most eye-catching element is place pretty much in the "rule of thirds" position, the overall flower feels crowded on the left,   Images don't have to fit into a particular aspect.  Consider cropping half off the area between the petal edge and the right frame and I think it's much stronger.

    Strengths:

    The artist strives for one of the two fundamental nightmares of photography .. "white on white". (the other being black on black :-) ). The choice of subject position works well, and using a high key monochromatic look does bring the image into the "fine art" genre.

    Suggestions:

    I think I would want just a touch more contrast between the flower and background.  on one of my monitors it's almost impossible to see the flower petals.

    Response:

    Thanks for the thoughts on contrast.  I'll play around with separating the blossom a bit more.
