Taken on a recent trip to Provence where wild flowers are left to proliferate.

Expo looks spot on. Nice dof. Only thing that bugs me is all the "dead heads" in the shot. That cannot be helped I know as it would not be practicle to go gardening at the roadside. However I'd have cloned out that twig 3/4 of the way up the lhs. Could have probably cropped out the rh 1/4 and dropped the top by about the same as not a huge amout is added by these areas. I also noticed that you had ISO 400 and 1/2500 TV. Could have probably gotten away with ISO 100 and a slower TV and reduced the noise (not obvious at this size I know but if you did want to crop it in and print it, it might show).
An excellent example of botanical photography, which the suggested modifications would make a great image.
Welcome to EPZ Chris.
Doug has provided a good critique, and all I can add is a suggestion to get in closer if possible and isolate a small number of flowers with a macro shot, to eliminate the distractions. The flowers themselves are very attractive, and make a nice subject.
Ive uploaded a cropped mod that can look better.
Enjoy the site,
Excellent suggestions one and all! Many thanks, and thanks Willie for your version. The photo was one of those hope for the best shots as I couldn't actually see the image in my screen as the sun was so bright, nor in the view finder as it was almost impossible to get low enough, I just pointed and hoped for the best. I really like the square(er) format of Willies and I can see where you have done a little bit of cloning. Thanks again. I will keep trying!
