Nice Shot! Great depth

this is a very nice photo but also a very difficult one to make... at close range, it is difficult to get the depth of field you need for an object like this one... Overall, the composition is excellent.. the blurred stamens are slightly distracting... = 7 - jmsetzler

Beautiful and well illuminated. I love this. As for the challenge, I wouldn't rate it high in texture.

Great photo. Love the colors and the angle. I feel as though something is amiss - but can't put my finger on it-sorry - perhaps having the entire flower in focus, but not sure...cause the brown thingies make a nice circle in or out of focus. Great work! 9

this is a very vibrantg shot. reminds me of fireworks. I like the color contrast, and the shadows on the flower. the only thing I would try to improve is the depth of field, in order to get the anthers into sharp focus.

Good photo, but I don't see a lot of texture here. If the fuzziness of the stames were clearer, and more dominant in the photo, it would have worked better for me. Nevertheless, I give it a 6

Meets Challenge5
Total Score6

For those that are just learning, like me.

Composition: Scoring in this area is based on basic composition of a picture and includes the rule of thirds, balance, cropping, and curved and diagonal lines. Subject matter that does not lend itself to the picture or otherwise unwanted is also considered here.

Originality: Scoring in this area is based on pictures or concepts that I have seen, as well as how much effort you have invested in the picture. Usually a little something that sets it aside from a snapshot. Does it make me want to come back for another look? You know things like that.

Technical Aspects: Focus, exposure, lighting, and other special effects (done by the camera), and post processing are all considered in this category.

Meets Challenge: This is based on my interpretation of if you, have/have not, met the challenge. This is fairly simple but quite important for this site.

There are many sites that can give you assistance in achieving better skills in photography, but I think the best way to learn is to take pictures and show them to other people. Believe me when it is a good one you will know it.

Good luck!

Great flower photo well captured. There are some compression artifacts though which could have been reduced by using the whole 150k file size allowable.
07/23/2002 03:52:00 PM
The image compression really hurt this. Either that or the focus was off to begin with.

Beautiful flower, but doesn't strike me as "texture".

A little pixelated to me in spots. You had a lot more "room," as far as submission sizes. There are a lot of people in the forums that can explain this better than me, but sometimes it is possible to get rid of the pixelation by adjusting compression. Very nice colors and composition. karmat

Nice composition and exposure. Nice that you could include the sky with some clouds (or were those jets that just went by?).
07/22/2002 03:45:00 PM
nice composition
07/22/2002 02:24:00 PM
flowers are too much of a common place, ant this one isn't even that rich in texture...
07/22/2002 10:33:00 AM
Great colors however the focus is a bit soft and you cant notice any sharp detail of textures.
