I don't know whether this can stand on its own as an image or not. I suppose it depends on what you expect a photograph to do.

Challenging. But of a puzzle. I'm perfectly capable of digging this, but I do screw my face up. It's a little extreme in its lack of a middle ground, and lack of a background as well. What are these flowers in relation to, I ask. The black holes are a bit disconcerting.

This is the sort of thing that makes me wonder about my display screen, which has a tendency to turn snow pink.

Little bit of vertigo here, I feel I've leaned a bit too far over and am in the momentary prelude to a summersault. Yes... A bit of a gravity dissonance.

For the next one could you get behind them and shoot looking out?

I do like being conducted from one shadowed petal to the next, coursing on lavender limbs.
Dave Bonta: Thanks for the response. For what it's worth, I shot this right at dusk, so the ground really was almost that dark.

I suppose it can stand on its own. Though, it suits better for a fine background. A small accent somewhere in the corner (say a bright red flower) would give this shot much more depth, I think.
But I like it as it is as well.

Dave Bonta: Thanks for the feedback. That's kind of my own feeling about it, as well.
