Comment by GolferDDS:
Nice angle. I think I would have chosen a different color backround.

Comment by DennisF:
Very summery. I like the soft colors in the melon. I wonder if a different background treatment would have enhanced it more - more out of focus or against the dark green.

Comment by Niten:
This is a good shot all though not the most interesting(maybe its just not hot enough here yet). Maybe try putting some lipstick on the glass or something.

Comment by StevePax:
I don't think this needed the green grass behind it. On a straight white background it would be great, too.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

I concur with all of the compliments below!

In this image, three croci grab my attention very quickly as the colors are so bright and lively. The cropping and composition work well for me because it seems as if they were apppropriately random, showing an almost candid shot of flowers--yet the photo is still balanced and the three flowers invite me to move my eye around the frame. In fact, the three flowers form a kind of circle that my eye really enjoys making over and over again. This photo gives me a feeling of happiness and peace--it's a celebration of exploding color and springtime. Very nice work!

To improve the shot, I can see only one thing that you might want to give more attention to: light. As I look at this photo, my eyes finally end up resting on the upper flower--that is where the most interesting light is. It gives definition to the flower, but it is gentle and even and builds a calm mood that speaks so clearly. Note especially how well the yellow of the stamens meat and is embraced so softly by the colors in the petals. The lower left flower has a harsher light. The flower on the right has better light, but its shape isn't as inviting as the top flower, though that's no reason not to include it, for we all enjoy variation. Someone noted below that they felt the darks were too dark and the lights too light. I think that it only has a few spots that are just a tad too bright. A diffusion of your light would probably have solved any lighting problems here.

The green leaves in the background also have interesting light, and really do a nice job of enhancing and grounding the brighter colors.

In sum, a wonderful shot. Focus and DOF work very well here, as does composition and cropping. You've obviously a great eye and have great skill in these areas. Lighting could perhaps be improved, so some experimentation with light may be a fun thing to do. This is a fine shot that you should be very pleased with. I've really enjoyed looking at it in more depth.

I look forward to seeing more of your photos in future challenges. Keep up the great work!

Comment by mbardeen:
The main subject here feels isolated. I think cropping about half the foreground out would have been a good thing. Good reflections and understated use of colours!

Nice colours, but the 3 blooms compete for attention. The composition could be tighter.

Comment by deckyon:
huh. Can't say I like this one. Too much sun creating a virtual washout of the candy. I find it hard to look at, with the sun so prominent in the picture. Adjust the exposure, or the angle of the image... This is a tough one to critique. One interesting optical "illusion" here is if you scroll down, until only the candy is showing, it is much clearer than with the entire picture in place. I did look at the rest of your portfolio, and am very impressed, so I think this just seems rushed.
