Hi from the CC CLub,

It is a lovely weed or flower, I would like some down here in the desert!!

So you have a lovely shot of a blue flower, it is too centered and could do with an interesting angle to make it more appealing. The background is spot on, very very good blur there. The pink is distracting in your border, I know it is another flower, but it really pops out there. In post processing, you could have really popped that flower off the page with a little contrast, some curves and selective colours. a little dodge and burn may have helped too.

Remember the rules of thirds when shooting.

Keep on shooting and drop me a line if you have any questions.
