    These will likely be the last blooms in the garden this year.

    C&C always valued, thanks for looking!

    I really like number two. Mostly for its soft feeling and the out-of-focus-flower.
    There are two things that distracts me: Too less space around the large flower and that they bend to the left.
    So, maybe something like this. The dark upper corner is another thing to correct, but it was too complicated on this small file.

    @Strmbrg Thank you very much for the feedback. I like the points you made!
    I had a few different thoughts for this photo, because I made another shot in conjunction with the small flower in focus:
    cosmos-1-6.jpg


    I wanted to combine them in some way to view together, but maybe it didn't work out in such a pleasing way:

    I have some room in the original file to add the space as you suggested to shot #2, and I agree with reversing the direction. Thank you again :)

    These are really nice. The 3rd one is my favorite of these. My only c&c, and it’s really just personal preference, is the dark background on the first one. I’m not a fan of almost black backgrounds with flower shots. I think they work better with some background context 99% of the time.
