I like the 2nd picture better than the first because it has a center of focus.

The first picture is pretty, but it doesn't really hold my attention.

The first one just doesn't do much for me. It's a pretty enough area but nothing to hold interest. The second is just the opposite. I'd be tempted to get rid of the green on the purple.

I also like the second one better. The flower is the center on interest. With that in mind I think you can make it stand out more. To show you what I mean I have modified the photo some. The first photo I brought the dark part up 10 and decrease the gamma .1. I also expanded the mid by –5. This brings the flower more out of the background. It also brings out a little more detail. In the second photo I just applied some unsharp mask. As for the hole I would leave it. I think it gives the flower more character and that makes it more interesting.

I would agree with Daz and I would also remove green leaf bottom left see attached.

Daz and Synint,

Great tweaks...really these small changes makes a photograph so much more.

I will urge you to view my photo blogs and give me the feedback and comments. I have just got hold of my Adobe elements 2.0 and learning it. Check out some of the tweaked images in my photoblogs.

Arunpd,

I have posted here some comments on your photos of your daughter, Ive used the comment under each photo so you know which one Im talking about. Ive printed them in Bold . Bear in mind this is just my opinion and someone else may see things differently

JULIE:-)

"Eyes say it all...aint it ?"


very nice this first shot. very cute child, lovely expression. This photo has a nice soft feel about it. I like this shot the best of all of these photos.



"Hmmm...forgot what I had to say..."

Nice shot although cropped a little too tightly


"Ooops...I did it again.."

Nice shot although minor redeye and it appears a little out of focus.



Scared...Watchin Finding Nemo...Not sure whether Nemo will meet his father"

Very nice photo although I would have liked to have seen more of her body.


"Moma please let me speak...you have finished what you had to...Its my turn now "

Nice shot but it appears fuzzy, needs more focus on her eyes.


"Don't give me this to read...its your age to read...not mine...I just love playin..."

Very cute but the two colored background distracts.


"Kavya- Airborne- and really lovin it !"

Fun photo as is the next one as well. Very cute child doing what cute children do.:-)

In the first one the interesting elements are the stems, as a kind of micro-forest. The percentage of the field of view for these elements are however attempted to be balanced by a distant background landscape. My sense is that the stems want to be seen dramatically. They want to dominate the view. Get closer. Turn the stems into a dramaticlandscape and intensify the image generated by these interesting flowers.The secondimage is more successful since you are much closer to the elements of interest, and now the spaces between the flowers and leaves take on a life of their own. The colors tend to become an impressionst's pallete. Look for "green light" as a kind ofheavy airthat saturates the realm of the flower and ignites the vibrational capacity of the reds, violets, pinks, and purples. Where do you find "green light"?For example:the Keukenhof gardens in Holland, in late May, after a rain, in the very late afternoon. In conditions like these a large tree canopy of very light spring green leavesbrings an absolutely amazing "green light" cascading onto the floor of the gardens...and turns images of what is already a spectacular place, into an absolutely stunningexperienceof color, design, place, and time.
