    This bush is blooming outside my front door. I thought the little flowers would be an excellent opportunity to try my macro setting on my camera! All critiques are welcome and appreciated!

    I think you did good. Flowers are hard to be creative with ;)
    I also think #2 would be a lot stronger with a good portion of the bottom cropped off. I would remove it all the way up to where you actually crop off a tiny part of the longest yellow petal. Try it and see what you think?

    Beautiful!
    Ours still take their time in appearing.
    And the dandelions are not out yet, either.
    But they will show. They will. I am sure. Eventually...

    Yes Corinna, I am anxiously waiting for color to hit Indiana! Right now it is mostly dandelions and tulips and such...

    Ahh, spring. Nice shots. I think brightening them up a bit would help. Curves or levels if you use PS. I like the second crop much better.

    I only have Photoshop 5.5...not sure if I have ever seen those settings in the options? Here is what I have come up with by adjusting the saturation:
