flowers for cc

Not sure what type of flowers these are but I loved the color so I tried a few pics. I wish on the purple flower that I did not go so wide open with the aperture cause I think it could be a little less blurry. All sooc

1. very bright but I think I like it that way.
ss. 1/400 f/2.8 iso 200 I think


2. settings same as above I hate that the flower was on it's side. The stem bugs me.


3. 1/400 f2.8 iso 200


4. ss 1/1000 f 2.8 iso 200


5. ss 1/400 f 3.2 iso 200

LOVE #1 & #4...

#1. I would blow this one up BIG and put it in a black frame... VERY nice. I too love the bright color.

#2. not digging it... nice focus, just not working for me...

#3. too centered for me and not loving the fence in the back. #1 of this flower is definitely my fave!!!

#4. WOW... LOVE the purple... this is another one I would frame in my house.

#5. I don't mind this shot, but still really like #1 of this flower...

I love the purple on the best.

# 1 and 2 Seems OOF to me but I love the orange colour.

#3 not fond of the angle but the focus is better

# 4 LOVE

# 5 best of the orange one in my opinion. Brighten it up a tad.

Loving the bokeh on these. Flowers are so hard to shoot cos they move faster than kids do.

Well done

1) not loving this one. I think the white is too bright. It almost looks like a fake flower.
2. also agree that both these look a bit oof.
3. focus is better here.
4. LOVE! Great shot! I too would frame. The centering doesn't bother me.
5. my fav of the orange flowers.

WTG Tia! Way to get out there and practice!

The orange is a poppy and the purple is Allium (the onion family)...

I like the white & green behind #1, but it's not focused & I wish the whole flower were there. I love the color combo though and agree it'd look awesome in a black frame.

#2 has better focus but just needs more composition. the flower looks really good though. #3 the flower looks so beautiful, just needs a better BG I guess (although it doesn't bother me much) it's my fave of the poppy! #2 looks the most focused among 1-2-3, to me.

#4 looks awesome except like you said, the very front of the "globe" didn't focus. I love the bokeh there!

#5 is ok but I prefer more light coming through that awesome orange Smile
