This must go against the grain to some extent
Like the work, understand the forum. Like
your other work better.

That is of course me.

Rosanna the rose is very delicately rendered and is beautiful but I feel the hardness of the black is hurting it. Maybe if you had of watered down the black in a bit http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Different.Looks good in the small size but actual size may be a little too strong for such a delicate subject.

The rose and leaves are fine. The black background looks digital - it is a uniform pitch black. The edges where black meets subject are all very hard. So with a bit of variation, and a bit of color on the background and some modification of the edges would make an improvement IMO. Perhaps something like this:
