    Well I gave the roses another shot today, but realized I couldn't find the flashlight I was using to bounce light. (I know, I know, ghetto style. :lol::lol:) That's why the lighting is crappy/there's some noise because I didnt have my tripod.
    C & C please. :thumbup:

    Tried a different white-balance to get a different color for the white wall...I think I over-processed it a bit though.

    I like 4 the best.
    That blue wall is too much. I think it overpowers the rose and really doesn't fit the tone of the rest of the picture. I kinda like #1 too. I don't have any technical advice but figured I would comment.

    #1 is definatly the most intriguing to me and my favorite. I really like how the center pedals are floating in blackness, very neat.

    i like the composition of #2 also but the other lines in the background are a little distracting to me.

    Thanks guys. I was shooting this on my kitchen counter and trying my hardest to get a completely white background, but it was tough. :greenpbl:

    They look good. Much better than the rose I shot on my kitchen counter. How did you get the background blue and the black one? I like 4 and 1 the best.

    I like #3 the best but the flower in #3 with the backdrop of #2 would be more appealing to me.

    The blue I got by shooting with the "Incandescent" white-balance, and the black is actually a dark blue tablecloth that became dark as I added to the contrast and shadows.
