I took a couple of photos for :iconcnhiansae: for part of a commish, and I thought I'd publish this outside of my Sta.sh :)

I would LOVE critiques/constructive comments. Please don't feel shy, as long as you're tactful and nice about your corrections, I'll always be willing to listen! :D

EDIT: I played with the background - what do you think? :iconcnhiansae: I can send you this version too watermark-free if you like this one better :)

Canon Rebel T3i/600D
50mm
Macro filters (I forget which combination I was using here :()
Construction paper (black for background and cream to reflect light to the back of the flower)
10$ Small shop light from Home Depot

Lovely colors and contrast here, I love the composition too.
The sharpness and detail are lovely, however, the piece is a bit soft, and I think that a bit of sharpening would be good.

The depth of field is good, but the softness towards the back is slightly distracting from the rest of this gorgeous piece.

I also think you could crop out the left slightly. This would center the piece more.

I really love that shade of blue and the feathers. A really nice touch there.

Well done, keep up the good work.

:hug: It's a lovely flower indeed. c:

I simply adore the contrast of the color against the background and how it has a simplistic, cool beauty about it.
There's also a subtle contradiction in the feel of this piece that I enjoy, of the flower and the feathers. The depth of the field is wonderful, and I felt the softness is a pleasant change from most shots like these that I come across, and has a soothing atmosphere as well.
I also appreciate that the flower is off center, it creates a better focal point and sticks truer to nature. I feel this is an original piece that is brilliantly executed. :meow:
