    First picture of a flower I've put here... other than a macro of a stamen..

    Not asking for specific c&c or anything but comment if you want I like the various opinions here.

    edit: resized before uploading because photobucket rapes image detail

    i really like the composition. The way the stamen is inbetween the two oof petals, its just a nice picture. my only comment is the shadow (i think) on the upper left hand corner of the flower. i think its from the "orange tipped" petal that caught more flash than it should have. But really, thats just nitpicky stufff.

    Nice shot.
    Refreshing to see a flower shot on there with some good focus and clarity.

    I want to look at this flower and my eyes keep wondering over to that blue dot in the upper left corner, wondering what that might be?

    Honestly I did not expect a response. Thanks everyone.

    I used my 50mm at 1.8, 1/200, ISO 200 and had a napkin draped over the flash.

    I was in the house, my daughter picked the flower from outside so I had it in a vase. The blue blur is light reflected from the television onto the lamp (which was off). I wanted to do something simple and this is what I got.

    EDIT: will post another thread with *gasp* more flowers (and other stuff) in a bit.

    lovely photo. i would only deepen the blacks and eliminate the blue spot in the background; its a little distracting

    ^ Funny you say that felix, I actually bumped the black curve up a bit..
    Thanks for all the comments. Here's a couple more. Yes I processed them a bit.

    The tulip is sorta dreamy but the blue upper right draws my attention away.

    I did a single tulip the other day I will post in a new thread.
