Thought I'd better get on with it. I took this on Tuesday, I loved the red colour on the stalk and the promise to come of vicious thorns.
Shot in RAW with Sigma 105 macro lens, tend to use auto exposure and let the speed set itself, but haven't noted either. Not cropped or cloned at all.

Great detail, and DOF

This is a great subject with lovely colours, light and detail but there are a couple of things that may have improved it. I think it's a shame that the tip of the leaf (bottom left) has been cut off and find the small flowers and part leaf crossing the stem on the right a little distracting. Always worth doing a little 'gardening' with macro! It's well taken for all that.

Group 4 Buddy Critique:

Lots of good detail here and the shallow dof works well. I would be inclined to crop up from the bottom and lose the main leaf as this tends to draw my eye from the main part of the image.

The detail is sharp and you have achieved a good depth of field. I agree the image could have benefitted with a crop from the bottom to focus on the detail in the shoot. The eye is not drawn to any one part of the image. A closer focus on just part of the shoot might have worked better. It is good to see the original shot but this would have benefitted from some post processing. It is a well detailed image with good colours and good to see an unusual subject.

When I looked at it I could see a dragon's head so I hope you dont mind I did do a mod. I am sorry the first mod is the original uploaded by mistake but it does outline the details of what I did to the original image.

Take care,

Stella

It looks to me like its taking a bow for you.
I think I may have either added the flower to the right wholly or got the shot without it in at all as its a bit distracting having been cut in half. The leaf below could have been removed for a tidier composition too.

Cant add much to the previous critiques,they pretty much covered everything.The main thing i would change would be the crop.

An interesting subject - I like the colour and the textures you have captured.

I agree with what has been said above - would prefer to see the tip of the leaf and either all of the flower or none of it, the half flower head is distracting. I like how you have isolated the stalk from the background, leaving just a gentle green haze, could be a lovely image with a few cropping/compositional tweeks.

the colours and basic shapes are lovely, the sharpness and dof are fine but a little constructive gardening would have tightened the composition up to good effect, the bottom leaf is doing nothing to add and the crop is a little tight on the top right, nice subject though and a good macro attempt.

regards,
Phil
