I am new to photography, been shooting since january.
Technically this is a fine shot. Exposure looks fine and the aperature gives nice bokeh.
Artistically, you'll want to avoid just having the subject in the center with dull space all around.
Colors are dull & flat. White balance seems way off (petals should be yellow???) Subject is perfectly centered. Too much background... could stand to be cropped (& rotated).
Given the shallow DOF of shooting that close, you did a great job of focusing!
And his sidebar states that his photos are NOT OK to edit. Might want to keep that in mind in the future.
Oops...good call. I edited my post which had an edited image
is the crop better? I know that your suppose to not center the subject but i thought the green looked interesting.
I think I'd crop it the other way so the butterfly is to the right of the image looking inwards.
Usually that works better.
