    i cant say im a fan of the lighting for that type of flower. in my opinion it casts too many odd shadows. and the hot spot in the middle is a bit unattractive.

    My guess is you used a hotshoe flash with some sort of diffuser? ive had similar disappointing results with this sort of set up. right now ive begun to prefer natural lighting for flowers to this setup. i do plan to move to an off camera flash set up some day i think that will prove to be a bit better.

    Sorry if i was a bit harsh, just trying to provide some helpful comments. i know it always helps me out when people point out flaws instead of just saying 'wooooowwww thats soo goodddd!!!!'

    Not at all....I welcome comments and suggestions that are constructive!! ;)

    The flash was on-camera. This shot was taken last summer--I now try to avoid using the flash whenever possible....but, I've always sort of liked this shot anyway! :blushing: LOL!!

    Pardon my ignorance...but...what is a "hot spot"??

    Thank you so much for commenting...I really appreciate it!!! :hug::

    sorry for the delay.

    a hot spot is just the brightest area that the flash... flashes. its generally in the middle of the flash. to demonstrate this:

    look in the middle upper left (quadrant one if youre familiar with cartesian planes) and there is one particular flower thats severely over exposed, thats the hot spot.

    correct me if i am wrong.
