    Some flowers that caught my eye on a nature walk...I tried to get as close with as much detail as possible not using a macro lens, and some turned out really out of focus. But...

    ..All in all, what do you think? Feedback is appreciated!

    ( i know i cut off the petals, and included the tip of another petal, which bugs me..but i could probably clone the other tip out.)

    The lighting is a bit harsh. Kind of burns my eyeballs like Tabasco.

    Looks like you went out around 3:15, which probably has something to do with the light. I would recommend trying closer to 6pm as the sun is going down, and find some with their faces towards the setting sun. Or the opposite time of day, sunrise.

    :lol: This is my first time experiencing Forum Daffodil Season.


    Hmmm...what if there were one thread for Daffodils, and then in a couple weeks, we can have one thread for Tulips....

    lol, bitter. Yeah..." 'Tis the season!" haha.

    And.. yes, Dom, It was about 3:15pm. I will have to retake them in a different sun setting. See how they turn out. I do agree the lighting is harsh.

    and pip, i realize they are nothing out of the ordinary..lol They are all over the place. But I was on a nature walk and taking pictures of things that caught my eye. :)

    I have another thread i started with this one of a variety of flowers from a bouquet. If you all would like to C/C on that as well. I personally think they turned out a little better than these, and are not as boring. Here is the link if you'd like.

    but as far as these shots go, and the timing of natural light...What about the angles? Are they ok?

    You missed the focus on the flower in the second
    I personally don't like the fact a part of the petal is cut off in the third
    The 4th one is the best, I just would recommend getting lower if you can, and pulling up any ugly weeds that may be around the stems.
