    It's what you do when you're sick and came home from school early. Sneak into the backyard when your mom's not looking and take pictures of the beautiful new spring flowers. :p

    Comments and critique?

    I like 1 and 7 also i think this is because the flowers are not on there way out and there are no distracting backgrounds also a good use of focus in 1 and 7 well done. :)

    The first is lovely. Good composition. So it is a South African Daisy, Chris? Thanks for the info. Seems like I have a photo of the same flower somewhere here and now I can finally name that photo :D.

    I also like the Crabapple blossoms... apple blossoms and blue skies always go perfectly together (I can only relate to "normal" apple blossoms and blue skies, we don't have crabapples here, not that I would know).

    And I would also like your Photo 4 very much, hadn't the focus slipped from the centre of the rose blossom to the leaf in front... but that one is composed nicely, too.

    Oh my. How do you know these things?? I also saw on another thread that you were going crazy with naming flowers. :p
