That's an attractive bouquet you've got there. Of course you wanted to photograph it, especially with a new camera!
I do see a few problems with your shot, though. First of all it looks like you've used a large aperture, resulting in limited depth of field. Now, there's nothing wrong with that in itself, it just depends on how you use it. And since you focused on the green flowers, it leaves the pink gerbera out focus. Also nothing wrong with that, some might say, but trouble is that the flower that's out of focus, takes up the major part of your image. And there's a big shadow over it. A different aperture or different point of focus could have solved the 'out of focus'-problem, and a reflector, a piece of aluminium foil or a light could have solved the other. You could also have used flash on the bouquet, if necessary.
Or if you meant to focus and concentrate on just the green flower, a different composition would have been better, with the green flower taking up a lot more space in the picture.
Just a few thoughts - hopefully you can use them to your advantage before the flowers wilt.
Yea, I do see what you mean; and I'll definately keep the advice in mind for the next pretty bunch.
...those are a little, shall we say - dead.
Oops, well in that case: good luck with the next bouquet!
well, cheers all the same
