I think this would be better if a few more of the flowers were in focus at the bottom left to balance it out. That being said I do like the image. 6

as simply beautiful as this is, the last thing it needed was that border. other than that, nice work.

Lovely. Some parts are a bit grainy.

IMHO the composition looks too busy and distracting. On the other hand, nice colors and shallow DOF

this is a good composition and cool DOF butttt im lookin' for pics that i'm really going to remember and are really going to stick out in my head as a really amazing shot and a picture of flowers doesn't really do much for me.

Very nice composition along the diagonal. Softly understated.

nice composition. Might have maybe preferred the flowers to be a tad whiter, but do like it nonetheless.

Too bad for the posterization.

I've looked at this image a couple of times and I find the shallow DOF to be too distracting with all the others in the background. Another perspective where you could have framed only one or two flowers (not sure ifthat was possible) would have been better suited with your title. Good Luck.

Wow! This is really purdy and I think the DOF really makes the shot. Good luck!

neat DOF
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 03:05:32 PM
I little bit more DOF to get some more of the flowers in focus would help.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 02:54:53 PM
IMO too many of the flowers are out of focus, sort of distracts from the ones that are in focus.... again just my opinion
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It sure is simple and it sure is beautiful ... well done, 8!
