I caught this Hibiscus flowerpoking througha chain link fence but the pic of the whole flower did not work for me. Since I could not eliminate the fence I did a macro using the pistilgoing in the same direction as thefence. Does this work?

Thanks

I don't know if it is just me but all I am getting is a little square with a red X. No picture.

You and me too Shadow

Don't even think about mentioning the twenty-over game that's just finished - I'm looking for somewhere to hide away until the Rugby season starts again:G

Hey Jim, Can see it now - that is really nice. Good angle (I think)

Shadow - thank you for your sensitivity at this difficult time and I promise I won't mention the Ashes again :G

Have to say it (grinding teeth & all), you guys are playing superb cricket at the moment - dream season for young Ricky.

I like it. I think if you were able to get a piece of black cardboard behind the flower it would really isolate the flower.

But as I said I like it. You have done a great job with difficult surroundings.

the flower is good, but the background is distracting. it needs either something in the photo to isolate the flower, as Shadowlies suggested, or some work with DOF and PS to get rid of - or at least significantly reduce - the intrusion of the background into the image.

Very nice picture but it maybe a little to close.

The fence has got to go. The green is ok. Where as an old rusty wire fence and old
wood post would be nice the fence in this case hurts the photo.. .You might want
to crop out some of the right side for better balance.

Hi,

Maybe if you have a piece of either black or white card to hold behind the subject it would help to enhance - the background has definately gone against you here....

I like the diagonal angle of the stamen really nice comp.

The background is enemy number one. The flower is great especially the angle from which it is was shot at. Cool.
