Very good, Sandy. I like your composition and all the yellow-on-yellow with that bit of red as an accent.

Sandy: Really like the flower. The BG color grabs too much of my attention though. Perhaps more high key?>=))>

Sweet yellows, Sandy, with the flower set at a jaunty angle, showing off the centre nicely. The brightness and paleness of the petals sing of Spring !

I like the composition and the color-on-color of the subject and the background… Very very nice image!

This is a Magnolia I’ve not seen before. A variety of Japanese magnolia perhaps? I think you’ve hit this just about right. No nits.
