    Not a fan of the hash lighting. It doesn't mix well with a delicate flower.

    Thanks for looking and sharing your critique. Could the processing (which focused on getting 'pop' out of the water') be bothering you as well? Same image but softened:

    I do agree with you that the lighting is not soft, so could be simply irreparable in that respect if soft lighting is the goal.

    Personally, when it comes to flowers, I enjoy a wide variety of takes (lighting processing, POV, etc.) but your observation is dead-on, and appreciated. Thanks again for looking and giving me your impressions.
