I was looking through some of my pictures this summer from when I first started taking pictures with my Nikon D80. I took a family vacation to the Outer Banks where we have a house in Duck. I ventured over to the Elizabethan Gardens in Manteo to try out the camera during the middle of the day with way too sunny conditions. After looking through them now I really suffered with centrally composing nearly all the flowers which is why in retrospect I really like this photo. I have lessened the brightness and contrast but still think it may be too high. Thoughts and criticism appreciated.
