Those are amazing! What equipment did you use, and what settings?

Thank you very much!

They were all taken with a Canon 5D II and 100mm f 2.8 L Macro

Lovely series of shots.
Whilst the compositions all work I think they are a bit too centered for my taste.

It might be worth experimenting with the lily images. Those blue markijngs are demanding to be a focal point.

The dandelion is best, as presented, in a square frame.

The poppy would be better with some of the left and right sides cropped off.

The last flower, whether the case or not, looks rather 'tired' and past its best. I know some flowers can falsely give that appearence but here we are considering an image, as presented.

Thanks Harold, I appreciate the C+C. As I said in another forum, I have only been doing digital Photgraphy short while and started doing my own PP in the last 6 months or so. Still very much in the learning stages of it. Always open to suggestions and help.

Although on #1, I like the fact that the "blue markings" stand out and grab your attention.

Lovely series of shots.

Thank You Brian! I did experiment with a couple but settled on these, but I see what you are saying.

Have a good one!

I'm no expert either. I have been doing serious photography for several decades but digital for only about 18 months. My comments would equally apply to prints from film, although cropping is so much easier with digital.

Lovely set!!! The poppy and the dandelion are my favorites. As to the last one being tired and past its prime, that 's me

Thank you birdie! There are plenty of things that look good when they are a little past their prime and I am sure you do too.

Very vibrant colors, nice set.
