Taken in my home studio, a little bit of cloning, but not too much as the texture of the petals changed when I tried.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

..and this is the first time I got to critique two photos from the same member. Guess what would be the odds of picking two consecutive pictures from 750 in queue and both from the same person!:)

Aesthetic: I love flower shots and I have one for the same challenge myself. This one looks cool. Just white on black with hint of yellow looks cool.

Technical: Some of the detils got missed out for while on white (petals on inside of flower) but overall its well exposed.

Challenge: For sure- it fits the challenge.

Conclusion: This is certainly a lovely picture. There could be few things done to make it even better. One - too bad that the flower on right is cut. Two - follow the rule-of-thirds. Voters love it. Three - I'm not too sure of this one but glow filter might add some punch. I used it on my submission for the same challenge, which was also flowers, and it was positively received by voters. Anyway, some people are of the opinion that filters should be avoided...so dont take my word on this one :)

..and yes- the bike is still cool (for this critique also as nothing much have happended in ast 10 mins to change my mind for it) :)

Wish you a great day!

The top right corner is cut to close, cut off. The center of the picture, the open lilly on the right, is very dominating. A shame, because the lily on the left is so many things. Seem both shy and wanting to know more. I love it. I think I would see what happens if you play with that one a bit. The one on the right is a good one also, but in a different way. I really like that little detail of green at the bottom. Good luck.

How wonderfully soft. I love the sharp detail even for the soft velvety looy of the flowers. Great black background.
