Default Just an Iris

Let me know what you think, please.

I think...

the background is a bit disturbing. You might want to use a larter aperture next time.

The flower is not that good. Too much space above compared to the space on each side. Why not in the middle...

Your Depth Of Fields are incorrect due to wrong aperture. The flower should be sharp all over. This is a bit difficult, but possible...

It not sharp enough

The lowest part (don't know what's it called...) the green stick is gone...where is it ?


I would try again - to be honest!

Klaus,
Thanks for the info. I haven't had a good camera in years and am out of practice using one. I cropped the photo to off center the flower thinking that I had read everyone saying NOT to center the main object in a photo.
I'll keep trying.
Thanks agan.

Well, the rule of thirds are well known. But this is not what you have done here. There's more to it than that. Anymay - you shot is nice and if you're pleased, then there no more to it...right

Not just an iris, it's a bearded iris.
