Hi,
Please be honest..I think these are good (for my current standards!!) but want to see how I can improve it either while taking the snap itself or in pp.

The very shallow depth of field is a hard sell. Use Flash for macro work. Good colors and keep going.


Canon "Snappy".... Thanks Mom and Dad!

vpnd,
thanks for the comments..the shallow depth of field was intentional. I wanted the only sharp part to be in the left 1/3 of the frame. Used my 430ex for this one..
