Hi,

I know this kind of shot has been done to death - but an image from my garden doesn't hurt :P
Your comments are welcome.

Thanks,

:agree: May need a bit more contrast between the subject and background and a tighter crop to 1) come in closer to the subject, and 2) get it off dead center. Plenty of possibility here.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

@chakkaradeep - I don't own a macro lens - yet :)
this was shot using an 18-105 kit lens in manual.

Thanks !
One question though - how do I ensure more contrast between subject and background in this case? (sunlight was directly falling on this flower in the direction its facing)

It you could, hold or set up a large piece of cardboard or similar to block the sub from the background. that would help. Adjust your shooting angle to get darker colour in the background. Some will hold or spread a large dark (even black sheet behind the flower, at a bit of distance) to REALLY make the subject stand out. Lots of things to experiment with.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

This is a very dreamy shot of a pretty flower....I really like it! One thing that helps me when shooting flowers is to shoot early in the morning when the sun isn't dirctly overhead or on overcast days. It makes a huge difference and then your subject isn't all blown out. Keep on shooting and have fun! :)
