I like the first one, the others don't do anything for me.

The first two are a tad out of focus. In the third, you achieved focus on the back flower. I hope that was the intended point.

Theres not enough contrasting colors to draw the eye. Theres a billion colors in the varying shades of gray.

Number 3 is best as a solid black background has to have some color, no matter how slight.

The third one Is the best for sure. I dunno why someone was talking about white balance LMAO, these are all mono/duo tone images..... o well...

The third one is great IMHO, you have the in-focus reflections of the OOF foreground flowers and then the in focus one seemingly "hiding" behind them. s'great. One thing that I THINK would help. And that would be to crop the slightest bit of a sliver off the top of the third one. ;-)a

Hope this helped.

Cheers.

Thanx for your replies, the third one was my favourite too. I was just playing around so yes it was intended for the back one to be in focus, i'm gald you liked it. Just out of curiosity, why is it that the first two weren't so great? just too boring? Sorry i'm new at this, any advice is helpful!
