If JimC hasn't already I will do it.

Post only one picture per post. It is the intent of this forum to critique only one posted photo at a time.

Multiple posts of pictures in one post is not the intent of this particular forum.

All of them seemed a bit too distant and dark.

Try them early in the morning so that there isn't any direct light on the flowers and get in close using macro mode. You may want to try in the early evening when the sun isn't directly on the flower.

This way the detail is not blown out with the highlights having too much light.

I liked it as well.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"The photos wont work for a gardening book, but I think it looks great.
