1st attempt at macro photography with my new Canon 100mm macro lens with a Canon 20 D. Constructive criticism welcomed.:|

Have to agree with ken,

the shot works, if I had to search for some remark yoou might use a smaller apperture to get the stamen more in focus. But that's just searching for something to say, and you would have to compare the shots to see if it was any better.

Great shot - Ronny

I like the presentation here, but there are a number of things you could do to improve shots like this. First, it's a little noisy - maybe a bit too much cropping? Overall, the image is a little soft - focus on the stigma and style should be tack sharp. It also looks a little dark - I think you could brighten it up a little without blowing the white petals. Some of the dark stamens are dissappearing against the dark bg - a different color bg might have worked better. Hope this helps ~ Ron

Thanks everyone for such great input. I tend to agree with trying a smaller aperture to get the image a bit sharper. Pretty much the image is exactly how it came out of the camera. I did nothing with croppingor changing the background...but definitely need to pay attention to what is in the background.

Again, thanks for all the comments and keep them coming...I am a sponge and like to learn,learn,learn.:G
