    Lighting, sharpness, focus and colours are all good in all 3 shots - but I think you might try a bigger depth of field with shots like the first 2. I have found that macro likes a greater depth of field than longer ranged shooting in general (though you can get very impressive results with a very fine depth of field and taking multiple shots are different focusing points and then stitching the shots together (layer masking)
    Number 3 though has worked extreamly well - great shot!
    I take it this was under more controled conditions?

    Overread, thank you for the suggestion. I will take it when I get my fingers on the next flower I shoot! :)



    Thanks Overread, LaFoto and soul.glo on the very nice comments regarding the last photo. :) I put a lot more effort into the shoot. The lily seemed very elegant to me and so, in my mind that goes with simplicity. I then adjusted its surrounding accordingly.

    I was wondering if it's ok to post macro shots here. Nice work, personally I think the dof is just fine.
