G'day suvro

Point of focus = okay; exposure = okay; composition = okay; DoField = okay

I would say that you've done okay and got a good end result
Okay?

Regards, Phil

Agree with Phil above. Only thing I see for improvement is a bit of graininess in the green background especially on the upper left corner. May be the result of a high degree of magnification or high ISO. Sorry for being picky, but I am a pixel peeper by nature!

I could not read the EXIF data on your image to tell what ISO or focal length was being used.

Thanks Wingman, yeah u r right to note the noise in the left upper corner, that's because of cropping may be..i m giving u the exif data..iso 200, f/5.8 & shutter 1/250

My eye was immediately drawn to the missing anther on one of the stamens. This ruined the symmetry and thus the overall quality of the image. C minus.

Please disregard my last reply. I confused the pistel that I identified as the stamen with the missing anther. Raise my grade to a B. I would have liked to have seen the complete flower though. I have no problem with noise as pixel peeping is like a "white glove inspection" where there is always dust to be found. Noise is nothing more than digital film grain.

G'day again Suvro

Another excellent flower rendition - I like it > well done

qwik Q ... as a non-gardener person, what's the difference between an 'anther' and a 'stamen'?

Ozzie,

I think this is right.

The stamen is the little pad and stalk combined. The anther is the little pad and the filament is the stalk.

The pistel is the shaft in this photo that has no anther (pad). It's a little different in color in the photo. The pistel is different from the filament (stalk) from a stamen.

I think the stamen is the male part and the pistel is the female.

At first glance, it looks like a broken piece, but it's not. I think that's what the other person was describing. If the anther had been missing, it would be a flaw in the photo. But, there is no anther on a pistel.
