Field of Daisy's and Fountain Grass are both excellent compositions. Figuring out how to compose a shot is still the biggest mystery for me and I really like what you did with those two. Of the closeups, I like the sundew the best but it is really neat looking at plants I have never seen before. Thanks for sharing.

John - I'm totally amazed at how different your wildflowers are down under. I enjoy photographing wildflowers and I have a gallery, which I will list below if you are interested. These were all photographed in Eastern Washington state, which is a desert climate and the Cascade mountains, generally at 4000' to 6000'. I guess that shows why there are so many species of plants in this world, not to mention weeds. Of course you don't have any weeds in Australia.

Now is a beautiful time for flower lovers down there and the blahs for us as we head into winter here in the Northern USA. The sagebrush is justfinishing bloom here, which is the last thing to bloom during the season. We should start having frost any day now and a couple feet of snowusually after Christmas- Bruce

thanks for taking a look guys

Tim i like sundews too, i just want to get a really stunning photo of one lol

as for composition i guess it is like most things
you keep trying
maybe read a few books and learn some of the basic rules
painting books help too and other books concerned with design
i cant say i am an expert or anything
i still use luck

bper thanks for the link to your site
i took a look around the other day, today it wont open for me grrrr
you have your own share of interesting wildflowers
i like how they have their own survival techniques for coping with the climate
you have a much more varied climate than here

if you are interested i added a few more flowers

Nice shots, I wish it was spring here instead of 20F and snowing!
