A bouquet of flowers with some unusual colors. The lighting in this shot was achieved by redirecting the built-in camera flash with a few sheets of white printer paper, in tandem with the overhead flourescent light in the room.

very nice texture and very nice depth of field as well... my only critique on this image is a personal preference that I have learned from my camera club competitions... for me, odd numbers of subjects seem to work better than even numbers... in this composition, I believe that an arrangement of 3 flowers has more impact than 4, but is' just a preference thing. = 8 - jmsetzler

All I would say is this, a bit of adjustment on the levels makes the colours so much more vivid, as they are I think they look a bit dull and flat. Very unusual flowers, would like to know what they are.

Total Score8

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!
