    Pale Pink

    Have no idea what these are - I suspect they are "weeds" but I think they are just lovely as they have fought their way through the rubble of my soon to be garden.

    Great, diffused light! I love this kind of light for shooting flowers and you took full advantage of it.

    In the second one, I get a bit of anxiety about liking the obvious subject but being compelled to look past it to see the buds. I wonder if blurring the buds a bit would solve that problem for me.

    The first one works perfectly for me -- the imaginary triangle connecting the three blossoms, the three buds in the middle that have stronger color that nicely complements the softer tones of the open blossoms, and a depth of field that suits the blossoms in the background very nicely.

    Hi Joanne, I like your photos. I have to agree with the above post about the first photo.

    Looks a bit like Cuckooflower/Lady's Smock to me, Joanne. But I'm not an expert on wild flowers.

    Start off on the pink side then fade to white?

    Will attract a variety of insects.

    Well photographed. Exposure can be so tricky with subjects like this.

    I agree with Mike's comments.

    The first one is wonderful. What type of lens did you use?
