An Iris Flower

An Iris FlowerNice one!

Did you used a flashgun?
There is quite a strong light going on here.

Hmm, it's nice but if you really want the have that Iris as a main subject in your scene use a much higher Aperature. Looks like that you used let's say around f14 - f22?? Go higher to f4 or f6 if you can with your lense! With a compact camera i don't quite know if you can change that setting.
Then i would also make the use of a much lower shooting angle or a drop down angle to see more details of the Iris. Maybe also a bit closer would have a lot of impact as well.

Give it a try and see if it makes any differents for you.
A Big Tree, In A Beautiful GardenShooting towards the sun is always difficult. There is that typical "lens flare" and that "haze".
Both is not bad if you got the right scene to shoot.
But here it is maybe a little bit to much "glow" and "haze"
I would try to add more contrast to darked the image a tad. That would bring out a greater amout of detail, like in the tree and the water.

Well done anyway and keep on what you doing!
Keep your photoes coming!

Can you be my messenger.......

Can you be my messenger.......Very creative stuff that one is! Greatly work out and moded.
It tells a brilliant story.

Maybe one little thing i noticed. That full moon might be a tad to big here and henceforth take away the attention to the bird in the left hand side where that (very lovely indeed) lady's eyes are looking at. I do believe that the bird plays a vital role in your image because of the letter it has to deliver or just delivered. It might would help a little to highlight this bird of pray just a tad to include him more in his important role to the image.
Think about it.
