    What do you think about this composition and approach for this one?

    excellent shot. the angle of the light creates movement down and to the left, whereas the petals and placement of the whole bloom just off left third vertical give a nice counter-point upward and to the right.
    dof is great.
    well done!

    I like the composition a lot, and the colors are great. Stands out from your typical flower shot! Is that a Dahlia?

    Yes, it is a Dahlia. The owner of the garden that has these wonderful gems refers to them as "Dinner Plate Dahlias". They are very nice and wide range of colors.

    excellent. the lighting and colors are beautiful

    i was going to comment that the places at the edge where there's only a small piece of sky are unsettling... but i think they're accomplishing some interesting things.

    looking at it, i feel like the sky and petals are cold, and the sunlight and center of the flower are warm
