    Do you have any closer shots? I like the picture, everything looks pretty good to me. I just sort of feel like if you're showcasing the blossom it should be more prominent in the photo. These kinda get lost in all the green.

    That's not meant to be a negative comment, I'd just personally like to see one cluster of blooms framed up rather than 9 or so. Especially for a shot that is meant in some way to be documentation.

    i hear ya. these things grow so close together and close to the ground that they are hard to shoot without getting dirty (didnt want to lay in the dirt today)

    found this though and thought it was cool. it was on bud on a sign about the flower. It was there when I got there lol just balancing.

    the tree in the bg is a little distracting but this is one of the better shots.

    The first one looks dark, maybe a little underexposed...?

    Also, maybe the photos are a little cool? Maybe try a warming filter? I might be wrong, just some thoughts from my end.

    i was surprised when i saw the histogram and saw it was almost perfect lol. i'm not really into macro, but at least i can say i shot for my towns historical records lol

    no you're right, they are a little too cool. i agree

    Last one you posted is a nice shot in my book. Might work in a square crop even. The tree doesn't bother me but the space at the top sorta does. Maybe I'm just fussing
