About the Image(s)

This was taken of a planter hanging the house on a deck which gets a lot of sun. Used my D500, natural lighting. F 16, ISO 400, S 1/6 sec. I purposely did not include the whole planter as I wanted to emphasize the blossoms and greenery. Composition of the image was planned ahead of time and not cropped after. There is one little area that bothers me and was difficult to fix.

Nice picture. The fact that the pot is cropped does not bother me so much. The f/16 aperture gave a good DOP. When watching it my eyes travelled from the lower left corner to the upper right.
My only critic is that they are too much flowers and the green area is taking too much importance. But I expect other people not to agree with me on that. It is just personal.   Posted: 06/05/2021 15:25:14

I like this. Like the diagonal going up through this from the lower left corner. I feel the image lacks impact. I see the possibility of other great close-ups of induvial flowers in this image.   Posted: 06/06/2021 17:53:37

I find this to be a charming shot of a flower planter. It captured my attention in that I wanted to appreciate the interesting perspective presented (the view inside the planter, hanging on the side of the deck). The pink flowers were highlighted for me in terms of their placement in the frame and contrast in color to that of the container and red flowers. Although close-ups of individual flowers might be explored, I enjoyed admiring this image.

The blistered area in the middle of the bottom section of the image is a bit distracting to me.

Hi, Clarissa. That blistered area is what I was referring to in my description.
That area of my house was re-shingled a year or so ago and that shingle was put on that way. I tried to pull the flowers over it but they would not stay. Oh, well!
