This is the first time I've ever posted a photo for critiquing. So, hope I'm doing this right.

Open for critiquing. Just wondering what others think of this shot. How could I improve it?

Thanks for any input.

Hi, its can be fun posting here, its a good shot and focus is good, so, for me I would like to see more of the composition the white is very plain so some leaves and background would add to the shot, the stamen is very plain and does not hold my interest, this is how i did the lily shot, hope it helps :-)

Thanks, Bill and musket. I had gone back a week or so ago to try some more shots (it was taken at the local garden center), but none were in bloom. I had been experimenting with my close up filters.

What do you think of a shot down into the flower from the top of the petal at a slight angle? With more of the plant in the image, per your recommendations here. That was my thought on my second trip.

Bill, I love your lilly pads. Our local ones haven't bloomed yet. I keep watching them every day.

The wild lilies have opened here and i am waiting for some sun in the sky to get some decent shots this year, If you go top down and close, for me, it suggest a abstract kinda picture unless its quickly identifiable for what it is. Having just one lily puts a great burden one the shot to be perfect as there is nothing else to look at. But its good to experiment and see what happens, good luck.

Thanks for the input, Bill. I'll try it next time I can find one.
