So of course I couldn't resist. Had to lay on the ground to get this one. Hope you enjoy.
Nice shot. Tack sharp, great background, excellent composition.
^ I agree, so I have to ask, why post it in the beginners forum?
Good question, and I think I've got a good answer.
1. I don't consider myself a professional, just a hobbyist.
2. I find a lot of the other sections don't get the views that this section does.
3. It is technically the "Photography Beginners' & Photo Gallery", with the emphasis on Photo Gallery.
I think a lot of the beginners don't venture to other parts of the forum, and therefore can benefit from others posting decent shots for the beginners to see and get ideas from.
^ Fair enough.
Nice shot Mark!
BUT, Tigers have stripes, Leopards have spots.
The bud in the back is rather distracting.
Greater DoF to get the whole flower and anthers in focus would have really made this pop. With only the sky as a background, if you moved that bud outta the way, there's no reason not to get the whole thing in focus. Right now it seems focus is from the center, to the back.
^ something to what Bitter Jeweler said. But I really like it anyway - great angle!
I agree with Bitter and would also go as far as to remove the green petals from the foreground.
By laying on the ground, you got a great angle, the blue sky is a great backround, the other stuff removed would make this a great shot instead of a good shot.
Thanks for all the comments & advice. Always good stuff to keep in mind.
