Nice picture, good lighting, but I see you have two flowers in the frame, the first orange one is great, centered, but the red one is in the corner being cut off, which attracts some attention away from the orange. Again it'sa nice picture.

i agree with sergeant, you have beautiful color and nice light but the composition is working against you, nice effort though

I like this as it shows real potential, but have to agree with the Sarge and Julie about the composition.

Regards,

Syd

Thanks alot, i have a lot to learn. I am just beginning this as a hobby and in my first week of taking shot like this, so with your comments and practice hopefully I will have better picks to come.

I agree with the other comments. Your exposure looks good and the color looks good.

I'll just be more specific about the composition. If you want to focus on just the one flower in the middle, then make sure that the big red one is completely out of the picture. If you want to include both flowers, then make sure that both are completely in the photo. Both of those choices would work nicely. I'd probably try both ways and decide later if one works better than the other.
