    Tulips

    One of my favourite flowers. Comments welcome.

    I like the colours and texture of this, but, TBH, I think it rather 'busy'. I would have framed it as I show in yellow below. That way you capture the best of the flowers, and still retain some of the context of the shot. The flowers on the right are not as well lit, and for me, don't add much to the shot. That leaf at the bottom right corner is distracting, I find. A lot of light seems to be at the bottom of the shot. How was it lit?

    Sorry to be so critical (I hate doing that)

    Rob,

    I asked for criticsm so your comments are welcome. It was lit by a large north facing patio door stage left, no flash. It was standing on glass table so maybe that was where the low light came from. Like your crop by the way.
