You forgot 'White Rabbits!' Grin

This is a gorgeous flower, such pretty colours. I may have taken a few steps to the right, this may have given a less busy background (obviously you were there and I don't know what would have been in the background). Sometimes when I'm concentrating on getting the main subject in focus I forget to actually 'look' at the surroundings - the whole picture has to be planned out! Smile

July already...............soon be Christmas!! Wink

(By the way, because you've ticked the 'Critique' box, we won't be able to actually vote on your image - but consider this a vote! Smile)

One other thing, don't just stop at one image, use different angles and view points (high and low) - being digital it is so easy to pick and choose your favourite, the more you have to choose from the better! (That was far too expensive to do when using film!). Smile

Hello, Eva. The reason why we look at the background is because we don't want to see anything that might distract the eye from your beautiful lupin. The eye falls upon anything that is strongly coloured, large or bright instead of upon the flower. So, the cleaner the background, the more we view the flower. For a start, you can see the image is slanted because the bottom of the door is not straight. I keep looking at that and wishing it were more level, when I should be looking at your lupin. The flower is also right across that door, which breaks up the lovely line of the flower, as does the bright path going across, which is also a total contrast to the dark at the bottom. I felt your disappointment in your comment above, and therefore felt I should try to explain what is being said. People are trying to make you not only look at the flower, but check what else is going to be visible within your frame. They are not criticizing your lovely lupin. They are trying to help you to become a better photographer, should that be your wish. Some flower photographers place a cloth or card behind their chosen blooms so that there are no background distractions whatsoever. Others may clone out background distractions in editing, blur it or completely remove it and add something different. I hope I have helped you to see why people consider it to be an important aspect of flower photography.
Pamela.

Pamela has told you all. When you compose a picture, you must consider the whole frame, not just the subject. The whole thing must come together to set the subject as the centre of interest with the rest of the frame a foil to that subject.

Here, the eye goes straight to the blurred and brightly lit background, not to the flower.

Paul
