A rather lovely crop but if it were mine I'd crop it square ?
Thank you Mavis!
Actually this is not cropped at all, as shot, .... but will go and try your suggestion
I like the idea behind this shot of 1/4 flower composition. The lighting is good giving good contrast and colour and the bg colour is very complimentary. I speak only for myself as compositions are a personal thing and everybodies idea is different but I agree with Mavis about a square crop. The main problem for me fere is your point of focus and depth of field. I would have preferred to have seen the whole of the centre of the flower in focus. As it is there is nothing to draw the eye to any one focal point. Another couple of f stops perhaps or moving round to the right a little so you were more square on to bring more of the flower in the depth of field. I would liked to have seen just a litle more space to the right of the flower so moving back just a fraction would have achieved this and at the same time bought more of the flower into focus.
Just my opinion and a couple of alternative suggestions.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for the very detailed crit and the suggestions you made! I really appreciate it.
As usual, I tend to rush into the shot and not consider all the angles or possibilities.
What attracted me here was the fall of the light and the beautiful complementary colours .... and I know that I tend tyo go a bit overboard with the shallow DOF f2.8 offers
