The dark background really makes the lovely pink blossom stand out we nicely, Joe. Moreover, the depth-of-field is excellent, and the frame works perfectly with the dark backgrfound. Very nicely done!!!

I like what you've done here- the black background really makes the cactus pop. The "arms" are a nice design element as well, and the pink flower is lovely. Sometimes I add a tiny bit of blur to the edges of something like this to smooth the transition and give it a bit more natural look. But it's a minor point-perhaps you prefer the crisper edges.
