    A few pics of flowers taken in my hometown. No retouching has been done.

    1 and 3 are the best, maybe if the entire flower was in frame it would look better. they also seem a little dim.

    #1 Has quite a bit of noise (look closely at the green at the top).. The lighting is pretty dim and poor, I think with some sunshine on it, you would have had a good go at it.

    #2 would be better if the lighting was even and the highlights weren't so strong. With white and yellow, highlights can cause sensor overload.

    #3 Again, you have a whole bucket of noise. The flower is also a bit out of focus.

    I would say choose the time of day carefully, and as you walk around looking for flowers, look at how the sun/light is hitting them and position yourself to get that shot of the warm light painting over them. Also look for flowers that are solitary with nothing behind them for a good ways, a dark background is even better. Then get low on them so you isolate them.

    Hey! Thanks for the input, I do take note of your suggestions.

    These pictures are quite old...taken with a camera that was really cheap and low-par. Even on low ISO, there was lots of noise.

    I got a new camera that is much better suited for me. I look forward to giving spring flower shots another try now that I have control over the settings on the camera. =]
