they seem blurry and the flower just does not stand out
umm any advice?
Looks like you are shooting a flower that is in direct sunlight...not easy to do.
Try and take the shot with something blocking the sun, or take it at a different time of day, when the sun is not directly on the flower.
Check your settings, and possibly bracket the shot.
Get it in focus and try shooting with different lighting conditions to make it pop more.
Got it. Sunlight bad. Although I do have a setting on my camera - for taking photos of flowers in direct sunlight - wonder how that will turn out.
By "get it in focus", do you mean while taking the picture? or now somehow?
There isn't a camera setting that is going to magically erase hard shadows. You'll need mad photoshop skillz for that, or maybe just spend more than a few seconds thinking about what you're doing before you do it.
^^ when taking the picture. My macro's are often not in direct sunlight, because it is too harsh.
