    I especially like the first one for its composition and subject isolation. Nine times out of ten, I prefer close-ups, like these, of flowers over true macros.
     
  3. I agree with Bob. The first one is my favorite, also.
     
  4. Hi,

    I also like the first shot best. Good composition and I especially like the use of the diagonal, not the typical flower shot. Good eye!

    Regards,

    Very well done. #1 is superb, love that composition and bokeh. thanks for sharing.
     
  6. I too like the first one Man.

    More than that I like the picture of Steve McQueen my all time favourite, with that cigarette dangling from his lips
     
  7. Thanks folks, yeah I agree with ya'll about the first one being the best. These have been really slow to bloom, I'm hoping the whole stalk will be in bloom at once eventually.
