This is very nice, I like a lot the contrast of colors between the flowers and the background, and the natural look of the image. I also like a lot the OOF fellow flowers all around the main subject. Very well pictured!


The subject flower is very well done. However, I am distracted by the flower behind it. My suggestion is the have it way out of focus or try another angle to have a less distracting background.


I really like your depth of field and the composition, Ian. You chose an excellent angle and background for this image.

Ian: Almost a cram look. I love your DOF/POF choice and the BG. Many kudos.>=))>

Ian, your choice of dof and pof/pov are excellent. The OOF flowers almost give one a sense of vertigo. Very original!
