I don't shoot flowers too much, but here are a handful I came across off the "streets" of NYC last year. :D Please do let me know what y'all think.

One of my earliest shots w/ the D70 last spring -- yes, colors were tweaked substantially. :D

I know. I really should reprocess this one, but I've been too lazy. :oops:

Not sure this really belongs in a flowers section, but it's got flowers. :roll: :D

Not actually flowers, but some hanging leaves instead...

The daffodil's are beautiful with vibrant color and good composition. I also like the tulips in image #5 and #7. Image #2, #3, and #4 lack the pop that would make them special. Good bee photo and leaves. Now get out there and find some for this year. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Wow! This image is really well constructed! The perfect focus is offset so well by the background. Even the geometric bokeh-balls add to it's symmetry.

Thanks, guys, for the kind feedback.

Gordon, I understand what you mean about the lack of "pop" in #3 and #4, and I did not really intend for them to "wow" although #4 could probably use a touch more contrast anyway. :D But I'm not sure I understand the same comment for #2 though. Can you elaborate a little on how it could have more "pop" (at least w/out becoming surreal?)? Actually, I guess a few of the others w/ "pop" do already border on surreal, so maybe that's where the answer lies...

Thanks again.

Kind regards,

_Man_
