Default Snowdrops

Took these in the garden last weekend, what do you think.
Its a fantastic time of year for snowdrops but I find it difficult to get a decent composition. Any advice greatfully received.

Pics are a bit small to evaluate properly.
#1 looks pretty good but could really do I think with shallower DOF (larger aperture) to try and isolate it from the background, or try a different angle where there are not so many confusing background elements.
#2 is ok but there are no clear lines to help the eye track around the picture.

Sorry for the delay in replying guys.
I am having a big problem in getting to grips with attaching images at the moment.

Must be me as I see some fantastic large images on the forum HELP!

Hi- easiest way is just to link directly from flickr by:-
within flickr clicking on your pic/all sizes/choose one that is 800 pixels max longest side/copy the contents of the second box down and then paste them under your text here but put img brackets on either side of the url like this
[img]picurl[/img]

you are allowed to post upto 8 pics like this in one message.
Hope that makes sense
Brian V.

No probs
Like #1 of the reposts - lovely pic. Think #2 still suffers from a bust background

I like the reposted snowdrop, although I'd crop it a bit. Take the black off the bottom then trim the top to keep thirds.
