    Like the title says, be brutal with your CC. Make me cry! That is the only way I can learn.

    I think the white balance on all of them is skewed too strongly toward the warm end...the color clarity of the yellows,and the greens, looks a bit polluted.

    I like photo 1 except for the fact that you cut off some of the petals. I really do not like photo2 at all. I did not like how the sunflower was out of focus. I would have used a smaller aperture setting to create a greater depth of field. That way everything in your photo would have been sharp. There also seems like there is way too much space below the sunflower. In photo 3 the leaves and stem are out of focus. Not sure if you meant to do that or not, but I would have liked to see that in focus as well. However, this shot IMO is nice other than that. Photo 4 you go back to cutting off parts of the petals again. :D Photo 5 seems strange because part of the plant are in focus and parts of it are not. I would have it either all in focus or not in focus, not parts both ways. The last photo is ok, but there is a lot of empty blurred space at the top. It kind of takes away from the the bug on the leaf. I also do not like how only part of the plant on the left is in the shot and some of it not. However, I really don't like this shot at all because it is not visually interesting to me. The bug is blah and the plant is blah. I will be posting some shots for c & c later, so you have my permission to be hard on me too. ;)

    All shots where at 7.1 aperture. With either my 70-200 or me 24-70. All the pictures I cropped in so I can easy fix the cropping problems.

    Thanks for the CC
