    Went out between rain showers today, and these are 2 of the better shots I got. I really like the first one. I'm not normally a big fan of a really dark background, but I think in this case, it really brings out the flower and rain drops. Second one did not turn out as nice, as the sky in the background it WAY off. I tried to remember rule of thirds. Worked better in the first one, not so much on the second one. Please C&C as needed.

    I like the first as an abstract & the second as a flower study.

    Not bad at all! Don't forget the 'Rule of Thirds' is a guidline at best, and doesn't really come into play for macro/close-up work where you often want the subject to fill the frame. I think #1 works very well with the dark background; notice how much less visual clutter there is without the stems and so on visible?
