    Plant Closeups

    This is one of my first attempts at taking pictures of plants at such close range.
    Let me know how these look and how to improve.

    Hello Muaaz and welcome.

    In both of these photos, the background is too busy and prominent and it distracts from the main flower in my opinion. I suggest you try and concentrate the shot more on the flower itself.

    There is an ongoing thread on this website called "Macro Flower Photos" and I suggest you have a look at that. There you will see a wonderful collection of flower shots and this should give you a better idea of how to approach this sort of subject.

    Cheers Dave

    Hi Muaaz,

    I can't improve on Dave's advice.

    You could crop these down, but you'd be throwing away 2/3 of the pixels, a bit too much really, so worth a reshoot if possible.

    Is the "105mm" on on the second images the Nikon macro lens?

    Cheers,
