Was this the only flower in the bed? It's a little ragged, isn't it? The petal protruding from the middle is out of place.

If you're going for the rule of thirds, you need to lower it a little in the frame. For a white flower, it looks a tad underexposed in my monitor.

You sprayed it, didn't you? It doesn't look like natural dew and it doesn't appear to be on the rest of the greenery. Does anybody know the origins of the practice of spraying flowers in order to make them more attractive? I tried it once and the result looked phony to me. Natural dew has a certain je ne sais quoi.

It was sprayed with the sprinkler system which had cut off 15 minutes prior to the shot, so yes it was sprayed but not by me. If it was a "staged" shot I would have removed the protruding pedal don't you think?

Or maybe be more creative with what you have?
