If I could find something to criticize I would. But you will just have to accept my compliments instead. Very well composed and the colors are fantastic. Nice work.

Hi all,
Took this the other day and just had to share it. I have upgraded my internet account to twice the speed and twice the limit so I may be around a bit more.
All comments and especially constructive criticism always welcome.

FZ10, Nikon 6T, F8, 1/400s
Nicely taken TM! Sharp, great details and nice colours!

Was it cropped? just personal opinion, the bottom part could be extend slightly to show the petals (or whatever you call them)....may look better? not sure.....just my 2c....

Thanks for all of the positive comments you guys, this photo is one of my favourites.
indiawala, good to see another person getting into macro. My advice to you is to get a good close-up lens like the 6T you will have a blast with it. I also took a photo of a yellow Lilly and to be honest yours looks a lot better than mine. Keep at it, I started exactly where you were just a couple of months ago, it really doesn't take long to get the hang of things.

greenbaron, no tripod used. I never use a tripod for my macro stuff I find hand held using the EVF (I have a canon eyecup now) gives me enough stabilisation. I have also noticed that insects aren't very considerate and often fly away so taking that extra time to set up a tripod would probably cost the shot.

tchuanye, thanks your comments mean I lot as it was your amazing macros that got me started! I didn't crop it and I do have other photos that show the bottom more but I thing the asymmetry helps here. But thanks for your input.

I have been busy with insect macros of late so I will post some over the next little while.
