    And still not happy with it, grrr.
    40D, day 2 using this camera, still testing the waters and learning the ropes of 100% manual shooting.

    I like the angle of the flower. I think it looks cool, it has good dof.

    Thanks. Just wish I had cropped that annoying yellow bit from the top...shall do that when it isn't almost 5am.

    Very nice capture. I would try and tone down the highlights about 1/2 - 1 stop. As for the yellow bit at the top, don't crop it as that will upset the composition, rather clone it out.

    The flower is a little dark. I also wish you had not clipped the one petal at the top. You could mask it with a closer crop though. I played with it a little, hope you dont mind, not 100% happy with it but here. I think the b&w makes up for some of the lighting problems.

    I agree with Toni. I like it.

    I guess you could crop 10% off the left hand side and it might improve it some. <shrug> Just my opinion. I pretty much like the original as is. The stag petal should go tho - with the clone tool like is being said.


    Nice image!
