Each flower is sharp with lots of detail with a nice supporting background making it interesting to the viewer. Pasted together, the composition becomes a visual disaster and looks amateurish.

Your intent is to lead the viewer to each composite, but this doesn't happen. The viewer first notices the larger flower due to the size and further enhanced by the placement in the upper and left 1/3 of the frame. The eyes are then quickly pulled out of the frame because of the white border. Of course, we have control of our eyes and can force them to see the other flowers, but that isn't what makes a visually effective image.

Must admit I really love this pic....The border is a bit thick for me, but otherwise it seems to replicate verywellthe experience of looking at wild flowers, or the wilder parts of a garden.

I often miss things though, so it would be good to see an alternative approach as well.

All best wishes,

Im with Rodney on this one, it doesnt look well done, and even looks amature, however the concept is there.

Each flower needs to be more exposed, bigger and sharper to bring out the white. By doing this you will get a good contrast with the background. To help you get everything aligned, try adding a grid to the photo so you can see exactly where everything is placed.

Good try.

I like the picture because of the choice of colours. It is in one word, serene. You have put a good foot forward, but i suppose every photo can be improved. I'd like to see you try another one after reading tips from rodney and twofruitz.
