A good documentary series, I have a couple of suggestions;
#1 it is a shame there's a hair leaving the top of frame - but you could always clone a couple of background pixels over the top (at the edge) to shorten it
In #2, #3 and #4, I might have tried a pickpick to clear a 'hair free' path to the flower itself (being very careful)

Thank you, Dave. I hadn't noticed the hair at the top but, now that you have pointed it out, it is annoying! I wasn't sure what to do about the hairs over the flower, either to remove them, or to leave them as they are a natural part of the plant. But you are probably right - fiddly job though.

I agree with Dave that the hairs above the flower should have been moved in the closeups, as the hairs detract from the picture.
The color and lighting in the photos seem to be good, though the pot has some color bleed into the background on the bright side.

Thank you for your comments, and I agree - I should have removed those hairs over the open flower before shooting. Too late now though, as today the flowers are already dying. I will have to try to clone them out in these images on the computer.
