Default Well.....

I bet you're hoping for a quick winter, freezeing my flowers, eh?
I'm afraid I'm boring you all with them.....

These were sorta fun playing with, how'd I do?

All three compositions are good. My favorite shot is the second one. I like seeing the inside of the flower unless there is an obvious reason for not shooting it. In all three pics I have a problem with the background. In the first shot everything is almost ok except for the pattern of stitching towards the bottom right. It would have been better to blur the background out altogether, keeping that nice green that goes with the stem and yellow petals. This goes also for the last pic. I cant see any reason to have black material wrapped around the bottom of the flower. Blurring it out would not create that problem. As for the second pic blurring out the purple at the bottom on each side would help. And finally I would have cleaned the petals of those pollen stains. Or I would have photoshopped them out later.
Since this is my favorite it fiddled with it a bit.

i like the lines of the first shot. very pleasing. i think blurring out the background or taking it to all black like Bynx's edit is best. i think you could also have bumped up the brightness and saturation a bit. without overdoing it.

good set though.
