    One of my first posts, so please any C&C is welcome.

    Went to the local garden today and so many beautiful flowers were blooming.

    Cool photos! I especially like #3 -- good composition, nice colors (not too saturated). #1 is ok, but I think you could get more interest out of open flowers. #2 has some nice texture and patterns on the petals, but in general it feels like it lacks a clear subject. Finally, #4 is a cool composition. It might be more interesting if the center of the flower were on the top right 1/3 point.

    Overall, you could make these "pop" a little more with a little levels or curves work -- don't worry about saturation, just try to get a little bit of the greyness out.

    Thanks for the feedback dcclark - I should have touched them up a bit before posting and after playing around with one in PS, I can see how some of the "greyness" is coming out. I didn't see it before, but now I can.
