    I like these, good work. One thing though. In the first one I think since you came in so close there should be something in the background. For some reason the top right corner looks like dead space to me. Great detail on both though!

    I have moved your post to the Landscape and Nature Gallery. The Critique Forum is reserved for more serious critique and therefore we like to keep it to one image at a time...(see Do's_and_Dont's), otherwise it just gets too confusing.

    Feel free to post multiple images in other parts of the forum...or to re-post your images individually into the Photo Critique section, with more of an explanation of the shot, equipment used, settings, and some remarks on what you were trying to capture and to show.

    Thank you.


    By the way: these are daisies.

    i think you may want to tighten up your aperture a little bit. It seems like you arent getting the whole flower in focus. It looks like the petals are good, but the center blurs toward the middle. I like the lighting though

    What do you mean "tighten up your aperture a little bit more"?

    Choose a SMALLER aperture (manually), which actually means: going for a larger number (like from f3.5 to f8 or so). That will increase your DOF (depth of field), i.e. make it deeper, which means more gets in focus in your photos, for the depth of field is that area in a photo that is sharp, while the rest is blurred, which in your second photo here is the case before and behind the flower.
