Default Flowers

Hello everybody,

Spring is here and flowers are blooming in multitudes, so I had to shoot them...I would really appreciate your critiques!

Also, please tell me which version of each photo do you prefer:

Sony α
Minolta AF 35-70mm f/4
Sony DT 50mm f/1.8 SAM

Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II LD
Tamron SP AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di USD XLD

IMO, the last one is the best of the lot. The others are too soft, over-exposed. The first two have the subject much too centered.

Too many for me to critique successfully, but I absolutely concur with Mr. Toth, about the last one. Personally (and I shoot with a Sony DSLR) I tend to underexpose, then bring up the light levels in PP. It's easier that way than trying (unsuccessfully) to recover detail from an over-exposed area. Not a biggie.
