Enjoy the new camera. Built in flash and more pixels!

This is quite good, - better than the last. Take care where you focus, - this is focused just a little behind the nearer and larger flowers.

A closer crop, - not a lot, can help.

You mention that you adjust the layers, - what do you mean by that?


Uploaded mod, crop and a little brighter.

Yes and a flash that I can bounce ^^ I love it! What I meant was I adjusted the exposure using layers. Thanks for your comments

You've framed this nicely with the leaves around the flower.
Your processing and crop have created a very pleasing result.

Wide apertures can be very effective for flower photography, but it makes it all the more critical to focuson just the right spot.
Sometimes focussing in from the edge of the flower is ok, but here it's better (more effective result) to focus on the front of the flower spike.
