Greetings from the Critique Club

First off your backround isn't working too many wrinkles distracting. A nice old hankerchief or a fine linen or even a little old lace would have enhanced the delicate age of the flowers.

As for the flowers...they are beautiful and you captured them nicely. They way they are laying there works for this.

Your lighting is an issue you have to much darkness around the edges. However at the same time you did well not to have any distracting shadows on your flowers.

I hope to see more of your work in the future.

Thanks for the comments and the 5 Tens. I really like this photo, the back ground is tissue paper that the flowers were wrapped in. I wasn't trying for this angle, just the vase fell over and this is what I got.

I don't think the background quite works.

Love that you centred it. I am tired of off balance pics. I would have gone for a macro and used two lights. Good stuff.
