    I'm not so keen on that big wall of white behind the flower on #3, although it allows the great detail on the flower to be seen to good effect.

    #1 is, I think, good, bit the size of the flower head in the image is quite small and the blurred background competes with it.

    That 'straight-down' approach in #4 is perfectly okay and is done well, just doesn't appeal to me.

    Which leaves #2 - which I think is the pick of the set. The flower is interesting enough to warrant our attention and #2 gives it the attention it deserves. Thanks for telling us about it.

    Thanks Donald.Wasn't sure about #1 either(that image was also a crop from the actual photo) therefore the reason for #2.These were all taken on a sand dune and i think i went a tad overboard on the pp on #3.I'll redo that one and see if it turns out any better.I have another photo with the actual indian blanket flower that i'll post because they are very colorfull but there's a blade of grass that kills the whole photo.I will attempt to clone it out for practice but i'm not promising anything great(Fingers crossed on that one).
