I noticed these today in my backyard. I am trying to find out what they are. They remind me very much of the Lily of the Valley that grew in our garden when I was a child.

The photo was cropped from the original, adjusted color, saturation, brightness and contract.

I think that you could have rotated the image slightly to the left to fill the frame a little more. You need to have a larger dof (try f11 at the same focal length) in order to ensure that both the flowers are clearly in focus, then with a little sharpening combined such a beatuful background this image would be very impressive.

hey no fair I realy want to click the 9 button. The lines are just wonderfull. But then I started to take time and enjoy the shot. Quickly realizing the entire floer in the back is out of focus. I think that this could have use d just a little more lighting to bring out more of the details. The leaf looks like it would have a beautifull curve to it. so with a little more light and better focus you had an easy 9.. as is I cant bring myself above a 7

I think,subject blends too much with the background. It makes this image washed out a littlre bit. I would try to do selective desat. to see separate background.
