    Excuse my ignorance, what do you mean by 7:5?

    I understand that you say chop off some of the left side of the photo just not sure what your term means. Constrain proportions?

    Imo when you have the opportunity the entire flower should be shown. Your focus and lighting seems good to me.

    Sorry for being unclear.. I meant a format ratio: 7 units of width to 5 of height (this is 3:2 image i assume). But looking at it a second time, i withdraw my suggestion. I like it how it looks here.

    Most dSLR cameras use a standard aspect ratio of 2:3.

    When printing a 4"x6" (6"x4") or a 8"x12" (12"x8") print... the aspect ratio is 2:3 or 3:2... For every 2 units of width/hight the other dimension will have 3 units, depending if you frame the photo as Landscape or Portait.

    Maybe this will help.... Aspect Ratio... or this... Taken from WikiPedia...

    Well I see my notifications are not working too much again:lol:

    Any particular thing you don't like about it?

    I don't mind critique, but to say "nah" with no explanation isn't helpful to me.

    I only said nay because your original post just asked for ya or nay.

    My nay was based on the composition (the exposure looks good). The flower is hugging the right side of the frame a bit too much, especially with it's angle, for me. Maybe if the flower had been on the right side of the frame with the dark green background and OOF similar flowers on the opposite side.

    I like your focus, I like the exposure, just iffy on the framing.
