    Same with my Tree Study thread, just some flowers i had to shoot whilst walking my way up Goat Fell. I could have taken photos of these all day.

    C&C per req:
    1. Perhaps a tighter crop on the main subject? I would suggest a portrait aspect rather than a landscape for this one which may have allowed you to get the whole stem in, and probably about one stop brighter.
    2. I like this one much better, but now maybe 1/2 stop too bright? Hard to say. I would consider cropping the bottom a little the out-of-focus foliage to the right is a little distracting.
    3. Very odd feeling to this one with almost a mirror image behind the main subject; exposure is good, just not sure if I like it or not.
    4. The highlights on the main subject are a little strong, and again a crop on the right to eliminate the distracting foliage would help.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your milage may vary.

    Yeah, i sort of thought that in the first shot the whole stem would have been much better. I had a fear of blowing out the sky in the first shot also, probably why it's a little dark.

    The flower behind the flower in the forground in the third shot was intentional although i think if i had moved left further and panned right so that there was more seperation between them may hve worked better.

    I'll have to spend more time with my shots lol.
