Hi Kaushik - very intriguing image - what kind of blossom is that? Just a suggestion that you might consider trimming a bit from the left. I like it!

Hey Kaushik, I like this image. Your right it looks like two hands and arms with a head. Nice details on the diver, but would have liked to see sharper details on the greens. The negative space on the left is subjective but it works for me. Well done.

If at all possible it might have been nice for a little more DOF to sharpen up some of the leaf areas and for a generally more crisper look throughout, I doubt this would have effected that nice dark backdrop any.
Having said this, the image is appealing as seen
And I like the use of negative space as displayed
All the best

Hi, Kaushik. I'm usually somewhat obsessive about having everything in the foreground really sharp, but here I see the greenery as "supporting actors". It provides some unobtrusive context for the star of the show, which is the unusual blossom, and I don't mind at all that the green parts aren't completely sharp. I think the amount of negative space on the left is a matter of taste. I like the image as presented.
