    a coworker asked me to take pics of some orchids she had blooming in her home. I didn't really want too at first due to the fact that I have never shot flowers before... but now that I see some of them it is something I would like to work on a bit more. Any info people can give me would be great.

    feel free to edit if you wish...

    i think you nailed exposure, very interesting composition (i like how they smaller as they go down)

    focus is good and nice use of DOF.

    i would sy you did a great job

    Thank you, I never really thought about shooting flowers before but I may need to look more into it.

    Looks good. I like the first one the most. The last one I like the buds and blooms going away from the shot rather than coming towards you....just the only thing is the focus is on one of the flowers a little way up the limb, and you have that main bud right out front that is outta focus.

    yeah, I need to work on the depth of field a bit, and or the focal point. Let me take a look at some of my others and see if any of them have a different focal point.

    thanks a ton!
