I do know how to take photos of flowers, but this overcrowding one has struck me hard. There are just too many flowers!!
i know what you mean. that's why sometimes you have to give up the idea of capturing the whole plant, and focus on just a branck or a couple of blossoms. sometimes you can make it work with the whole thing, but it gets real "busy", and the image looks cluttered. i prefer simplicity and a clear, well-defined point of interest, so i tend to focus on one bloom or flowe, rather than many... makes for a much more appealing and dramatic photo, IMHO... :G
