Kostas, I love the soft, almost pastel tone to this image...my only suggestions would be to maybe add a bit of canvas to the right and to the bottom. The lighting makes this shot...nice capture!

Hey Kostas,
Agree with John on some room on the bottom but you did very well with the light! I would be tempted to lighten the bottom 2 petals....so a reflector in the field....may have done the trick. Still......a nice job overall.

Hi Kostas. I like the pastel colors and all the detail in the petals. The leaf and bud to the left of the stem have a beautiful glow and you have excellent sharpness overall. My only issue is with the distribution of the light - bright on the left, dark on the right. I think this very nice image would be much stronger if this was reversed with the flower facing the brighter area. As is, the bright area is drawing my eye away from your cool flower. I really do like the look of the background on the left side - maybe you could try brightening the right side to match. Otherwise, this is very well done.
