where are you focusing? seems to be a bid OOF in general...was it taken using a macro lens? it should be very sharp if so.

The image does seem a bit soft and at 1/80 of a second the softness could be due to camera movement. A tripod or faster shutter speed might have helped here.

The image is a fair bit over-exposed. Many of the petals are blown and have lost all detail. A faster shutter speed may have helped with this as well.

The composition has the right feeling but seems a bit off to me as the flower almost seems to be tilted down and to the right so having it in the bottom right corner kind of drags my eye off the image. I think it would have been better in the upper left.

Hope this helps. :)

The petal detail looks fine on my monitor. However, I would concede that it doesn't appear to be tack sharp.

It is soft, and a little underexposed to me....I love Mums...;) I actually have photos very similar to this one.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Wow, sorry. I apparently shouldn't jump in and critique from the laptop at the office. This is not over exposed at all. Sorry.

The flower is slightly cut off on three sides. I'm not sure if that's a big deal or not, so I'll ask, how important is it to have the whole subject in the frame?

Sorry, it's been like forever since I have had a chance to get back here... Google+ totally distracted me!

I've seen many crops that cut off bits of the subject here and there. It's all about how you feel about it. Composition can be tricky as there's a lot of artistry involved. Sorry, I'm not sure I'm explain this well. I have a shot, for instance, where you only see half of a sunflower but artistically, this is what I had intended and it worked. At least, it worked for me.

I hope this helps!

Any image lacking in interest should at least be technically good.
