    In the garden trying to be creative

    Trying to be creative with shallow depth of field on these close-ups from the garden. Somewhat different for me, and while I like them, I feel quite "uncertain" about them and would welcome any feedback please.
    All photos taken with Sigma 85mm f/1.4 and a Kenko 25 extension tube.

    Hi, Trace

    I think #3 is gorgeous. I love the simple, subtle but rich color gradient of the background that provides a clear delineation from your subject and at the same time a visually distinct line for your dew droplets to be very easy to rest our eyes on.

    The first two shots are visually pleasing but I find my eyes roaming a bit. Take into account however that this comes from a person who has taken just about 3 shots of flowers in his life

    Thanks Kevin, I also felt most comfortable with number 3- I do like its simplicity. Thanks for commenting and for the feedback
