photoblog image I never tire of flowers.

I never tire of flowers.

Couldn't resist taking a quick shot of these flowers. Too bad I couldn't have done a better job. Good thing, though, is that I look at this and see a whole load of things I could've done different. I guess that means I'm making some progress. I would welcome suggestions on what I could've done different please.

You don't like this? I really do. Very nice color contrast. I like the way the red flowers are contained with in two boundaies of contrasting colors. Also that slight misty appearance at the bottom looks great. The contrast of red and green is also great. I can't point out anything wrong excet may be the focus.
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks Richa! Now I see what I could've done different, at least with the focus and the distractions. Thanks for dropping by.
You didn't do badly!!! It's a nice shot . IMHO the top right hand corner is a wee bit distracting but hey.. Well done.
Abisola Fatokun: top right, or top left? thanks Shakara. I'm happy you liked it. I have a couple more I took that don't have the distraction. I will post them at some point.
This is nice. I do think looking at the pic that the soft focus you've opted for doesn't help the image much, I think this would have looked even better sharp,or more specifically, you should have made sure all the flowers were well in focus, and you could then soften the greens in the background. i love the colour contrast though. nicely captured.
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks Fehinti. Noted :p I'll store this nugget of information in my databank wink

I'm not sure if shakara is thinking the same as me, it's the cordyline (spikly leaves) that distract, top left. I like the overall feel of the shot.
Abisola Fatokun: thanks! even the overly soft focus? I'm still quite confused about what would be the best effect and would probably need to take even more shots and have you guys' critiques guide me. Thanks for dropping by!
