Any suggestions on improving them?? Thanks :D

    Mel, I like what you have done; I especially like the these two 6x6. I like how the light appears to infuse the petals. To my novice eye the stream of light is the force that is adding color and forcing the bloom. In the second shot I like the focus and the appearance of diffused light in the background that adds a sheerness to the yellow. I don't have any suggestions...I wouldn't know what to suggest :cheeks:

    These are all incredibly beautiful! The luminosity you achieved is so lovely... :inlove:

    My only "critique": for me, the light stream in the 2nd 6x6 photo is a bit too bright. It takes away from the flower...

    How did you do this? Natural light, or did you sit them under a light/lamp?

    Hi Mel- these are really cool. Here are a couple of suggestions of things to try. I would like to see the light in the back a little more defused. Maybe you could put some type of filter over the light. Also photographers shine light on an object from several different directions to get shadowing. I think a little more front light may be nice.
