    I think the color is fantastic in both of these. The second image really gives the viewer a sense of a "moment" happening. The focus looks just a bit soft. I'd like to see a bigger version of #1, and you might consider closing down your aperture one stop on #2.

    Hi TiCoyote, Thank you for your comments. By "closing down your aperture one stop", do you mean increase the F number? may i know why? I tried to use the smallest F number to decrease the depth of field.

    Yes, the focus are not good. i will try to make it better in the future shots.

    I uploaded a larger version of the 1st one for your criticism and comment.

    It looks a lot better in the large version. I really like the second pic a lot.

    I like the second picture. The colors are vibrant and it offers a good contrast with the background, so it brings your subject out more. For the first picture, I feel like the colors aren't vibrant enough. They seem a bit soft and don't really jump out at the viewer. Of course, this is strictly my opinion. I'm completely new to the photography scene and my opinion is just based on what I'd like to see. =)

    When I wrote to close it down, I meant "narrow your aperture" i.e. give it a higher number. That would put more of the flower in focus.

    it was not easy to include more flower as there were only a few in the whole pond. and it will give a very different feeling when there are many flowers in the picture. but that time i chose one as the 'theme'. maybe next time, i have a try with more. thank you again for your C&C.
