I think that most flower shots are not very interesting. It is also noteworthy that very few people view, and even fewer rate, the flower shots. Most shots are not highly rated, even the very good ones have a hard time getting better than 5/5. I have a hard time rating or commenting upon them too. I do have some extremely abstract shots but then you can't really tell its a flower. <P> I didn't see a discussion form on this but there are probably a lot of good and diverse opinions on this topic. There is no catagory for me to put this into either. <P> My father put a coin next to the flower pictures he took to provide scale. He also used to shot from the top too - something that I avoid unless it really adds something to the image. You can also add descriptions that could tell more about the flower. But, this is not how I view images in a gallery or how I present them at home. <P> This may the the wrong place to do this, and my appologies if it is, but I would like to have people tell me (and each other) what their favorite flower shots are and specifically why they like them. Please don't post a photo but a link to a shot on photo.net or other location seems reasonable.
