Thanks Jen, Þorsteinn and crayon. I agree about the crop. Oh well.My eye is still visioning a larger frame from the fuji...I am not used to the narrowness of the Nikon frame.
Thanks for the critique, Lynn. A note about the leaves....they were placed there to cover the hot spots from the lighting on the vase. I do see what your are saying about their placement. Thx.

Greetings from the Critique Club, well wow the new camera is working for you i would say!
This is a truly lovely image, the lighting the colors, even the vase is tasteful and a warm addtion to this shot.
Really what can I say? You should use it to advertise some flower shop or something. Or consider becoming a floral arranger? My only slight criticism of this shot would be the 2 drooping leaves in the front I would like it better if they were standing still or not there.

Quite stuning well done!

these flowers are beautiful! I really liked the soft lighting and the exposure used here. A better crop may land this photo much higher, in my opinion. Congrats on the top 10 placement!

I like the dramatic lighting. The tulips seem to almost glow against the very dark background.

This is gorgeous! The colors are stunning, the detail in the leaves, petals and vase are crystal clear. I love the slightly off center layout and the subtle lighting. This is exactly like they should be executed. Good show!

Pretty. Love the lighting. THe texture of the vase adds to it for me with that touch of pattern and contrasting color. Looks like a poster.

Very nice lighting. The simplicity of this shot against the black background is really nice. :)

An excellent example of a still life. Great job with the lighting/subject/etc. Only suggestion I would have is I'd think a little more negative space on top would balance it out a little more.
