    Raggi, shooting with a Coolpix 500, I think you did an excellent job. Experiment a little in shots like these with bracketing exposure. For example: one 1/3 stop over and another 1/3 stop under. Then choose the best one.
    I am not an expert, still learning but found experimenting is the best way of learning.

    Nice shot in harsh sunlight.

    Hi Raggi,
    I agree with Andre, great photo with wonderful colours.
    I'm not familiar with your editing software, Photoscape. But perhaps you could mess around with exposure and, or adjustment of highlights and shadows if it has that capability.
    The top left of the photo looks a little bright but thats being picky. It's a great photo. Well done.

    A very pleasing image with comparatively extensive depth of field that in my mind would be improved the most by shooting in different light. Consider making shots like this on overcast days that produce softer shadows.

    I generally don't like flowers shot in bright light because of the harsh shadows. As examples in this case, the shadow of the stamen is distracting and the shadows in the petals make the flower seem rough rather than soft. You might be able to overcome these issues with flash but I don't shoot flowers enough to know about that.

    Andre I agree with you. Experimenting is the best way of learning & I love to experiment. I'll try the bracketing exposure for sure. Thanks for your comments.

    Greg Thanks for the appreciation. I don’t know much about editing just trying to learn. I'll keep your suggestion in mind.
