I am donating a few prints to a sort of holiday gift charity type thing. I am doing a couple different series of photos, and i am having a tough time choosing which of the flower ones to do. I need a choice from the first set and a choice from the second set. C+C also very welcomed.

IMHO, the one with two flowers from the first set and the one with the yellow flower in the second set.

ABSOLUTELY the one with the yellow flower from the second set.
From the first set...well...I kind of like the single flower...for exuding that bright color (looks as if it's glowing!) n the hazy yet kinda glittery backdrop. The one with two flowers is ALSO nice, but looks flatter to me.

All in all, kudos to you for ur sweet act for charity. I think ANY of them will be good as gold :)

2 and 4 are both very compelling. If I had to choose one, I'd have to pick 4 with some minor ps adjustments ... more contrast ... more sat

Thanks all for the votes, and also for the edit. I played around with contrast and stuff, but i thought it looked overdone, so i left it straight outa camer until the decision was made.

I am thinking about a 3 panel series, but i have a few flower pics that i am includng no matter what.

any more thoughts?

I like the last shot best, all are very good, but If I had to choose just one, the last image.

Thank you all for the inputs.

That white flower that koekloer posted seems to be the same type, just a distant cousin, very neat.

I think i am gonna go with the 2nd one in both sets, along with a 3rd that isnt in the choices here, to make the panel set.

TY again.

Photographs are records of life. Pity they don't make music when you put them in a record player. :p
