This is my first flower post from my front yard, I liked the flower and the flower bud just like an older sister watching over her young sibling.

Hi Vic

Not bad at all for your first floral macro. I really should get back into macro. Used to have a 300 mm macro lens years ago but it's gone to camera heaven. Not sure if my 55-200 digital lens will take macro? Anyway, I would play with the levels in the highlights here to try & retrieve some density. Tfs!

Hello Vic-

Very nice composition and sharpness. Good color quality and I like the poetic notes. TFS


Hello Vic,

very eye catching image of this pretty rose. The strong lighting and contrasts make quite an impact! Great sharpness and depth of field. Nicely composed and elegant framing.

Hi Vic,

Pink is my weakness, can't resist and this one is most amazing this is well composed by its bud, the exposure and frame are exellent, well shot and TFS.


Hello Vic,a beautiful rose and bud with a sharp focus and attractive colours.
I checked your gallery, and no, you haven't taken many flower pictures, judging by this, maybe you should!
Your DoF is perfect imo.
Tfs, regards Jean.
