I like the image, but I think with a black back ground, I would bump up to about F8 or 11 and have the whole flower sharp.
I too feel an overall lack of sharpness here ; thank you for your comment
Agreed about the lack of sharpness as the black background just makes the flower jump out at you. I keep on wondering is there a stem, and if not, how is it being suspended, or is it laying down on the background? That's one of the main issues why I stay away from solid backgrounds. I just end up with more questions and then answers. Over all, I think it's a great start, and with a little more work will end up as a excellent still life.
put the flower more to the bottom of the frame.
The center colours of the florers are beautifull! But there is a lack of sharpness indeed.
I actually like the lack of sharpness due to thin DOF. The middle is plenty sharp. If you had shot this with more DOF, the flower will look flat. I just wish you put the flower more to the bottom. Better composition I think.
I'm thinking it would pop out of the background more with sharp edges though. I like your thought of putting it on the intersection of thirds though.
I like it. I agreed that may be a little bit lower would work.
Thank you Joel for your analytical reply
Thank you Bastian; i too feel that
