As far as individual photos they're great. The middle is just a little too bright for my taste, but that's my preferences. The presentation is great though. I really love the simple single, multiple, single flower alignment. And that's what stands out to me the most, is the presentation. Great job!


It's never gonna be a perfect picture to everyone...but I'm okay with that.

thanks for your comments!
When i uploaded the pic i thought that all the shots were slightly too bright, may have to tone them down a bit! Again, thanks for the C&C

My understanding of a triptych is that it's the same scene distributed over three discreet images with a theme that runs through all of them. So what you have here is three pictures mounted in proximity. But I could be wrong.

To my eye, the middle one, not being a solitary flower among green, breaks up the integration. You also have two red flowers and one magenta, which is discordant.

When taking pictures of flowers, be mindful of your RGB histogram. Make sure that you don't have clipping (overexposure) in one channel, as you have here. It will cause blooms and loss of detail in the clipped portions.
