I'm no expert, but the sunlight hitting the flowers seems to be too harsh.
Some interesting pentagon shaped blurs in this one. It's a nice picture. I don't have much to say about it negatively except that the flowers don't really stand out and I'm not sure about the half blue and half gray background. Is that water?
I think cropping to just the flowers on the right would make them stand out a lot more. Seems like the color balance is off. I wish the flowers had more detail
@scuba. Sounds good thanks.
@reznap. Hmm yeah I got some more pics of these flowers at different angles that were more detailed but I didn't like the composition. It's not water it's two different colored panels on a building. P.S, the t2i is out now? How is it. I was thinking of t1i. What's better?
I'm a sucker for backlit plants, flowers included, but something tells me that this would have had an even greater effect if you could have brought a ladder (very likely, eh?) to put yourself so high only the blue part of the building would have been your background.
And as much as I normally like diagonal lines in photos, here the two twigs are distracting, as they don't contribute any to the subject as such. Actually, I feel there's too little subject and too much blurry (also busy) background going on.
That's the result of the number of shutter blades inside the lens. And that is one of the reason why some people do not like the EF 50mm f/1.8 lens.
