    the bird's eye angle is boring. and you slightly missed the focus

    How do you find shots like this boring with the spiraling pattern of the new pedals which you can't see from any other angle. But you are correct about it being a touch out of focus. Using MF looks good thru the veiwfinder. Should I use a remote shutter release?

    I did not use post-processing on this one. Shot the pic mid-morning and had to use my legs to block the sun.

    don't get so defensive. if i don't like it, then i don't like it. your rebuttal does not change my mind. but i do suggest shooting from a lower angle next time.

    I think it's very pretty. I don't have a problem w the composition....did u get any pics of other angles.? I can envision this flower at a super tight crop coming from a lower side angle w a macro lens. The color of this flower is exactly what I mean when I say my favorite color is blue/indigo/purple......I picture this.

    Yeah! There's this hard, fast rule that top down never works!
    Always shoot from another angle!
