Critique Club Comment:

Absolutely stunning. The colors of the flower are just breath taking. Your focus and your effective use of DOF makes this an interesting shot. I agree with one other commenter that the crop may work better as a square crop. I really can't see anything else that requires 'fixing'. This has all the ear marks of a professional shot.

Well done.

I am split on this image. I LOVE the front flower. It's gorgeous. At the same time, with this color background, I HATE the out of focus image. Not sure what I'd do differently either...it's just that way.

I like the background and the flower that's in focus. The shades of color go nicely. The flower in the back is a bit distracting though.

Excellent colors! The red really stands out on the blue background. Wonderful detail. The shallow DOF works well.

Nice idea. I think maybe 3 would have been better. I like the contrast between blue and red and the focus is nice. what if the front one would have been out of focus????

Lovely simple composition. I think I'd have cropped it square but still beautiful. 8 - floyd

very nice

very nice. only improvement i might suggest is that the picture is a little tight, especially for the background image.

Maybe croping part of the second flower of would look better, and put mroe emphisis on the first one. I'd have to try it.

This one and "Snapdragons" are the best flower pictures IMHO. Very nice photo!

This is beautiful... the soft color and the detail of the flower works nicely here... I also like the shallow depth of field... great shot :) - setzler
