Hi Alan, nice flower picture. I like the composition and the color contrast.

Ideally if the background has more leaves particularly on the left hand side. The flowers might pop up more. If not, then I might darken the background. And I will tighten the frame a little.

I gave it a try as below. Cheers.   Posted: 10/01/2019 21:36:33

I agree with Richard as to making the flower itself pop out a bit more, and would add a little selective sharpening to the flower too.   Posted: 10/06/2019 11:17:13

Hi Alan,

And now you are onto flowers! Quite the newbie--trying it all. Bravo!

I agree with the comments above. The ground is distracting to me. I work very hard to catch an angle where I get leaves or another flower to fill the frame and not concrete or mulch.

I also took a flower class--here are some of the points in case you find them useful--we learned the best flowers are photographed on a tripod (you didn't say if you used one) and photographed in the shade to keep color (looks like you were in shade), and photograph flower at the height of the flower to create more interaction, so it doesn't look like a cell phone photo taken from above.

The little white flowers within the magenta are awesome.   Posted: 10/06/2019 20:03:48

I like the colorful display Alan
and also agree with some of the other comments about isolating the flowers a bit more or removing distracting elements like the top leaf and ground.   Posted: 10/07/2019 12:22:19

This is good, try more close up and tight shots.
