Very nice, just a shame about the poorly leaf on the left and the rather large light source on the right. If you are competent at photoshop, it could be worth painting in to a fully black background.

Another play in PS.
I cannot put my finger on, but there is something I don't like in this version.

Maybe the grey isn't making the bloom stand out as much as say a soft green or solid black would?

It seems you missed first post, although very contractive critique.
Maybe something more that two words?

Typically, grey is not a very good complimentary color for red. The composition aside, this image would be better with a complimentary color. Cyan is considered to be the best complimentary color for making red stand out. http://www.brianmahieu​.com/optical_comp.html (external link) The RGB wheel based on light is better to follow for photography than the RGB wheel for pigment.

I'll give you an example. Find yellow on both charts. You will notice on the pigment chart that magenta is the opposite, right? However, blue is the opposite on the RGB wheel for light. If you are shooting an Aspen grove full of yellow leaves, which would look better as a background colors....magenta, or blue? The blue, of course. That is why Aspens look so good from the ground up, the blue sky in the background.

John Fielder also uses this same RGB wheel for his complimentary colors. He uses it to guide his composition when shooting color. It doesn't matter how good the composition is if the colors do not work together.
