I can't make up my mind on this shot. Sometimes I look it and like it. Other times I look at it and think it's horrible.

Opinions?

I know what you mean, but I lean toward liking it.

I like it the zooming as it gives a nice etheral effect.

I like the soft effect and I like the way the zoomed petals make a halo around the center flower. But then sometimes I look at it and it just doesn't work. Swipes and zooms like these are outside my usual efforts but I've seen some I really like so I'm experimenting.

Yep. Went out in the rain last Saturday morning. I saw some pics from Saturday evening at sunrise and they looked great. I might drive up again this weekend if it looks like there'll be some clouds to make the sky look interesting.

I think if it was more isolated from the background it would've worked better. I understand though that with the zoom effect it's hard to get the main subject sharp.
If you dragged the shutter and used some fill flash at the second curtain, that would made the main suject more in focus, still preserving the zoom effect.

yeah, I see what you're saying about the flash. I'll keep that in mind for next time.
