This is one of my first pictures, It got a good rating on lesser

photo site. I wondered how it would fair here.

Good or Bad I would love to read your opinions.

Thankyou for your time

Colin, one of my pet peeves is images that are too big to be seen in one screenful. Having said that, this is a very nice image, except for a bit of over-exposure at the 12 o'clock position. Nice example of the flower, nicely composed and lit (except for the above-mentioned over-exposure) and correctly focussed.

You need to resize your pics for this forum so that we can view them properly.


You also need to blur the background as it is a bit distracting. You could also lose the petals from the other flowers that are in the front right. They are simply distracting and would take 2 mins to remove in PS or similar.


Otherwise it is a nice rose pic.

I agree with Brian about the background but disagree about the flower petals in the lower right corner. They provide a contrast to the rose and remind us just how different a rose is from the "lesser" flowers.


In fact, I might have recomposed this shot to include more of that flower to increase the tension between the two.
