    They are all nice and vibrant JIm - but the different aspect/framing of the last one is great, plus the plain background enhances this - it really appeals to me - nice work.

    Hi Jim

    Were these shot indoors? I presume they were. You don't need flash if you have a tripod - natural light would probably get a more natural look. The first Gerbera shot seems to lack depth of field a little. In shot #2 it would be better to concentrate on one flower, rather than two as that makes the shot divisive to the viewer.

    I like the last shot (lily), but it needs to be a square crop to remove the excess detail at the sides, and put more focus of attention on the central part of the shot, which is very nice. I did a quick edit just to show what I mean. Have a look at the flower shots on my website if you want some ideas.

    Where abouts in Glasgow do you stay? I used to live in Helensburgh.

    Thank you Shannon (nice name), and welcome to CiC. But I think you are wrong. When I give 'feedback' to my wife, all I get is a good slapping...
