You've followed all the rules of composition and exposure quite well but, (there's always a "but" isn't there :lol: ) you have forgotten about the background. A concrete wall just doesn't work. ;)

Yes, concrete wall needs to be moved out of the way. What lens are you using? Could you try using a narrower DOF, blurring the concrete wall? Other than that I really like it.

yes there is always a but involved in everything :) the image is pretty much out of 600D only minor tweaking with levels but ( OMG here we go again ;) ) after i posted here i found it to be even better with little bit more saturation, about the background wall point well noted.

The composition needs work. Flower shots are a dime a dozen so at the very least you have to show a more unique perspective.

Nice, this second one is quite a bit more vibrant.


Canon T2i Digital SLR; stock 17-55mm and Sigma 70-300mm telephoto.
I am just learning so any suggestions are welcome.
