    That's not a flower, that's a dandelion...a weed. lol

    But, about the photo:

    I'm not a fan because of the dull composition,

    Camera Maker: FUJIFILM
    Camera Model: FinePix S1500
    Image Date: 2010:05:17 08:20:07
    Focal Length: 5.9mm
    Aperture: f/2.8
    Exposure Time: 0.020 s (1/50)
    ISO equiv: 400
    Exposure Bias: none
    Metering Mode: Matrix
    Exposure: program (Auto)
    White Balance: Auto
    Flash Fired: No
    Color Space: sRGB

    The aperture of f/2.8 is far too large (shallow) for this to be a sharp macro-ish photo. Look at the outside of the "flower" specifically the top, it's in focus, but the middle (part closest to the lens) isn't in focus.

    If you can, run a smaller aperture (larger F number) and get a wee bit further from the "flower", see if that fixes the sharpness. Then, get a lower perspective and find something more colorful to use as a background.

    Or better yet, pick a different plant :thumbup:

    I don't mind the shallow DOF, it is a bit under exposed. I think if you bump up the contrast and brightness a bit you'd have a better looking photo. My 2 cents.
