    This is my first attempt at a still life pic. I used a light tent, and balanced the flower on a glass. Did a little touching up in photoshop. What do you think?

    I really like it. oNE color on white just "grabs you". The only thing I would like to see different is a greater depth of field. I would like to have seen the bottom blossoms in focus. That's just me though.

    i really like the color....but i would prefer a narrow DOF so get more contrast between the front and the back

    nice. Might want to erase the blue tint in the background to make it a nice uniform white.

    I actually think the shallow DOF enhances the image.

    great job, i like the shallow dof, which i suspect you used to get rid of the glass anyway!! very striking

    Excellent!!! I like the shallow depth of field. Colour seems to be heavy on the yellow side.

    A great picture.. both the color and the shallow depth are very nice.

    very cool... wow.. those greens just pop... i wonder if a slightly pink (red) background tint would make em pop even more... (contrasting color)
    doubt it would be a dramatic difference tho... they already seem close enough to touch...
