    My brother brought in a dahlia from the front yard so I decided to mess around with it. I'm fairly happy with some of these.

    I like # 4 the best.
    Interesting treatment on all but i like the grey to black gradient and the not so processed look of the flower.
    Good job.
    If you could make the bottle in 4 look like the bottle in 7 it would be perfect.
    #8 looks like a painting.

    Thanks for the comments, boogaguy. They are much appreciated.

    I'm gonna try and work some more on the bottle in #4, brighten that ol' bottle up.

    I'm partial to #4 as well, and I'd leave the bottle alone. I like it just the way it is.

    Great work, I wish I could do these things. I like the whole set, except maybe #1 (too cartoonish for the subject, but just my taste) and #3 (too dark, can barely see the bottle). Number 8 indeed looks like a painting, and is probably my favourite of the lot.

    You found a way to come up with 8 different ideas to shoot the same flower and the same bottle. Hats off to that.

    How this thread has received just a couple of replies is beyond me, by the way.

    Trent-

    I think you did a nice job with all of them. I think #4 is nice but the flower seems a bit lonely in the frame. I'm enjoying #8 as the subject fills the frame a bit more. Though I think the top of the bottle in #8 is a bit bright and I find my eye wandering off of the flower and to the bottle.

    Nice Job :thumbup:

    I like #2 and #6 a lot. They are all really nice though.

    IMO the first one would benefit with out the bottle in it.

    #4 is great, i really like it same with #7, great work!!

    I just love your flower work, and how you use light. Its like you make the flower more human by the way the light touches it... just so inspiring. 3,4 and 5 are my favorites with 3 being like the best. The light, again, is used perfectly.

    1 and 8

    I love the intense contrast in 1 which really brings out the details

    the clarity and size of the flower in 8 really draw in your eye compared to many of the others
