Critique Club

Composition/Content - I appreciate the composition of this image, and I agree with others about the distractions in the lower corners. I like the presence of the flower's shadow on the blue background. I like the angle in which the flower is positioned. I feel like its a good rule of thirds application. The green leaves nicely accents the two main colors.

Background - I very much like the diverse exposure, focus, shades and textures of the blue background.

Camera Work - Technical - I don't know what I'd do differently so I won't comment on this.

Digital Processing - Technical - I assume you deepened the saturation of the blue. I would've done the same. I like the choices of brightness and contrast.

Opinion - The image clearly meets the challenge, and can hold its own even if it weren't submitted to a themed challenge. I enjoy the white vs. dark blue contrast.

Very pretty shot. I love the flowers. The problem for me comes with the background. The bottom left corner is the obvious problem. I with that the blue background were more uniform. The focus and clarity of the flowers is great. Lighting is also wonderful. The angle and framing/cropping are good. I also wish that the lint were removed from the upper half of the blue cloth, it's a bit distracting. Still a very nice blue shot. Good luck in the challenge.

This is nice. The dark bottom corner is a little distracting. The white flowers against such a pretty blue is a nice contrast.

something odd about the composition, otherwise a nice photo.

Beautiful flowers and I love the back ground. Only problem you should have cropped out the places at the bottom the blanket is missing. And need to get rid of the dark shadow behind the flowers with maybe another light or taken at a different angle.. Otherwise the was a 10. I really liked it too. PTL

The main focus of the image should be blue. By using a blue background and white flowers you're giving us the impression that the subject should be the background and not the flowers. I'll give you 5 because the flowers do look nice. You just missed the point on this one.

Great title and beautiful photo. Too bad you got that black corner in there. Nice lighting, and great focusing. I'm giving this an 8. Good luck with it.

the subject appears white--i know a reference--but you missspell your title and I am a lousy speller also or it appears--3bobgaither

I like your idea here. Just wish you would have cropped out the area on the bottom left.

I think a tighter crop and a more narrow DOF would help these flowers jump out at the viewer. The flower arrangement is good, the lighting could be toned down just a bit so as to give a softer look to the flowers. Good picture.

Beautiful mums. Love the contrast and depth.

Background seems a touch too dark. Still very nice - 8
