    C&C per req:

    A good start; it appears to me about 2/3 - 1 stop under-exposed. I would also consider greater separation between the feather and the background to ensure that the feather remains sharp while the background becomes soft and non-distracting.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your mileage may vary.

    thanks john....i decreased the brightness in pp but i'm not sure if that will have the same effect as underexposing....and i see what you mean about the separation and looks like next time i must find a cleaner place too....lol

    He means that the photo seems underexposed. Which means you should consider increasing the exposure (I use Lightroom for this.)

    What lens did you use? Did you use a macro? If not, that would have been a good place to start especially when working up close with a subject that you want a lot of detail on.

    What camera are you using? Have you been watching ebay for deals on lenses? do you know anyone near you that has the same camera with a macro, maybe you could work out a deal.

    Ebay Europe might be your best bet for lenses. I don't know all that much about international shipping rates, if it is cheaper to ship from the EU or US.
