    Welcome to the forum, and I think your pics look quite good. In the third photo down with the orchid pollen tip macro, the wood in the background is a real distraction for me. Other than that, I look forward to more pics from you!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Just so you know...it's rather hard to offer critique on more than one photo at a time. If you want some serious critique, just post one photo at a time in the critique forum. (separate thread)

    If you want to share a group of photos, feel free to post them together in the photo gallery forum.

    I look forward to seeing more of your pics.

    I like the full frame flower of the first one but prefer the angle on the 3rd. It shows more of the plants details.

    A lillie by any other name is still a lillie.

    I liked your images. I am impressed with your mastery of your equipment.

    I like sharp, vivid, and vibrant colors that jump out at me
