    Looks like the subject was too close to the background... getting a little bit of spill on to the flower #1,2, an 3, kills the background separation, and definition.

    #4 and 5, background is not white, and subjects look a little underexposed.

    How did you light the background? How did you light the flower?

    Can't see the spill over that Charlie is alluding to on my monitor. But I certainly see the color shift in the background in the last two pictures. Your exposure for pics 3 & 4 seem some what under exposed compared to pics 1 & 2. . Composition wise, picture 1 & 2 are the most pleasing, as the green stem just adds that little extra. I'm not fond of picture #3, as I think pic #4 is by far the stronger composition of the two.

    I used my lastolite hi lite for background, and soft box on the flower.
    Im very new to photography, ( as in only been photographing for the last 3+ months ) but doing a course at college.
    Ive been experimenting with settings on my camera, i.e shutter speed, aperture, film speed, and also lighting trying to get a half decent shot. tis somewhat mind boggling,lol
    But still having loads of fun. :)

    Yes i see what your saying about the exposure on 3 and 4 now that youve pointed it out.
    So why would that have happend?,
    I didnt change any of the lights. just my camera position. i layed down on the floor to take 3 and 4.
    Also none of the shots have been edited in any way either, they are straight from the camera

    i wonder what made the differecne in the B/G color in the last two images...as if the pink of flower is diffused to B/G???

    last image is really well composed, save a wrong BG

    Ok, so ive been thinking and thinking about the colour diffrence in the background of the last 2 shots.
    I think i might have worked out why...............................
    On the first 3 shots i had the flash gun on the camera and bounced the flash off the ceiling then on the last 2 shots i turned the camera around to get a different angle on the shot and forgot to move the flash gun so it would have been firing .....................well towards my open kitchen door i guess.
    I supose that would explain the background difference. :)
