    I find flowers boring but I looked anyway.

    #6 and #9 came out great. The others don't really stand out to me as much, but 6 and 9 are big-time keepers.

    Numbers one and nine are my favorites. That wild bokeh in shot nine is what I like about it.

    I love flowers but I find 99% of photos of them boring.

    Not the best title for a thread as you are inviting what you want to reject, imho.

    Some nice shots though ;)

    Thanks but the title was aimed @ the folks who complain about "more flower" pics. Sorta like on another forum not photo related, you warn of pics of bugs or snakes because it freaks some folk out. :D

    Thanks all, for your comments.

    Nobody commented on #8, - too artsy maybe?

    I think #8 could be a little brighter.

    Well, I'd like (maybe) a bit more depth of focus here. BUT what I do love are the colors. It's a very simple (having 2 basic colors) and pleasing image and the background blurred nicely, those big circles (that I can't seem to get.. even at 1.8).

    I did achieve what I set out to do in #8, get the tip of the closest petal in focus fading away behind. In retrospect I see that a little more in focus would improve the image. With regard to brightening, I tried that & it spoiled the "mood" I was after. If that makes any sense to anybody.

    I presented a wide spectrum of images from this lens & subject mater & it seems that the most popular were the isolated subjects with depth. I cannot help but wonder if taste in photos is a fashion thing.
