Hi from the Critique Club --

What I like: focus, clarity, and lighting are all outstanding in this shot. You did a really good job, technically.

What could be better: A couple of your comments were spot on IMO. A tighter framing of a few blossoms (? whatever they're called...) might be a more interesting shot. This would also take care of the narrow DOF, as you'd be focusing on fewer subjects. Don't get me wrong -- the DOF is great and I'm jealous 'cause my attempts at it always stink.

And, as someone else mentioned, for the "fill the frame" challenge, you'd probably do best not to leave a blank corner in your photo.

Overall, a very nice shot.

Just curious...Atlanta Botanical Garden? Nice capture and certainly meets the challenge.

DOF is too narrow to make this suit your title perfectly. By keeping them ALL in focus you would give even more feeling of perpetuation 'where does one finish and the other begin?'. You should also have repositioned to avoid the top corner of white which shows that, actually, they're 'not everywhere'! [4]

Might have been more effective to get in closer and pick out a few blooms. Interesting subject.

Where is this? There's another (closer up) picture of the same plants. Do these grow outdoors? They are most interesting looking.
