Nice comp and unusual angle Greg.
Looks like they could use some support or maybe just some water

Nice comp Greg. If you still have the flowers, try rotating the camera a little counter clock wise to add some tension ~ Ron

Greg, Interesting composition of the 'other side' of Gerbers.
Nice job on the lighting although the Gerbera on the right could use a little less of it.
I see it more as Gerbera thirst. Shame and flowers is to much of a contradiction for me.

Thanks Ron. I'm trying to figure what you mean by rotating the camera. Do you mean vertically?

Thanks Chris. You could certainly figure thirst into the comp, but it's more of a hanging your head, looking away from the camera concept...I tend to see flowers as expressive in a lot of ways and I like to try to capture and convey that. Sometimes it works, sometimes not....

Sorry if I confused you Greg. By rotating the camera counter clockwise while focused on the subject, it will make the flower lean more to the right, and that might create a little more tension ~ Ron

Love the hanging 'Gerbers' Greg. The flip side provides interest and a very lovely catch of light! I like shots like this, good one sir!

Greg, I think you got yourself a very nice shot. I enjoyed the alternative angle of view, it works well with the drooping flowers, almost looks like they are shy or being coy!
