your shot has qualities that I think most photographers should strive for. Sure, it's a flower of sorts but the graphic treatment sets it apart from most traditional, and boring, shots of the same subject. It passes my subjective criteria of something I haven't seen before. I enjoyed looking at it and thinking that the camera club judge would say "doesn't much look like a (insert flower name) to me".
Some of you guys should look at more books or shows; those flowers, and pretty much in that way, have been done to death by every 'name' in the business since the year dot. Even the world's most celebrated pornographer had to do it!
