I think both pictures would look better with a tighter crop on the flowers. A macro shot of the thistles would be neat.
^^+1, tighter crop would look better.
Perhaps I will try a re-shoot today with a macro lens & tripod.
Thanks for your comments.
Awesome, anxious to see how they look.
Ron, not to nitpick, but that top one is defiantly not nettles. As far as I can tell it's one of the Eupatoriums (Joe-pye-weed), probably Spotted (Eutrochium maculatum).
Awesome!! Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
As for C&C, if you want it, I like the Joe-pye-weed on the dark background. Nice use of DoF.
The thistle could use a little more DoF. I might crop it a hair on the left, just to keep the in focus parts of the other plant out of the frame, they're distracting to me. I really like the OOF parts in this one, gives a good indication what the rest of the plant looks like.
Thanks Ben, I remember stinging nettles as a kid & thought this looked the same.
Nicely done, Ron.
