    Here's another shot with my Camedia D-395.
    My one concern was there being too much noise and debris in the background.
    Again, as much criticism as can be given would be much appreciated.

    I would have to agree with the debris in the background. There is too much distraction in the background for my tastes. My eye doesn't know where to focus. It's a beautiful rose thought do you know the name of it?

    Another compositional aspect is: the flower is in the very centre of your frame ... you will want to avoid doing that in the future. This photo has so much room to crop, a creative crop can easily see to the "problem" of centred subjects, and a crop will also eliminate some of the busy background. So this is none that would need to go to the bin, not at all. The flower is way too lovely for it. But it could do with some "scissor" work.

    Actually, I am having a very hard time cropping this. I can't find a way to make it look nice.
    Would any of you mind terribly posting a cropped version of this picture to show me what a good crop looks like? I would find it most helpful.
