When I've looked at your flower image. I can see that you technically got three pure colors, which are considered to be aesthetically pleasing. The depth of field is very narrow so all the focus is on the object, good!. composition seems to be close to the golden ratio (viewed from the flower of course), which is significantly better than centralizing the object itself. And now to my own discretion. I love this picture, because when I look at it, it looks like a flower in a tropical sea. The selected perspective and blurry sky makes the illusion possible! .

I could not see anything directly wrong that you could improve. Sorry for that


My best wishes / Tom :)

This is a beautiful picture overall, of unarguable poetry.

As usual, making a sharp subject stick out from an ocean of pure cottoncandy bokeh, embedding it from both before and behind in cotton clouds, seems to be your strong suit ! (I would love to know which lens you are using and how, btw.)

Why I choose to critique this picture among all others is that it is, in my opinon, a few details shy from perfection :

- The blade shadows in the brighter upperleft corner distract me. It is always risky to include sky in such a shot, because of the contrast - or, I'd rather say, disparity in luminosity. And these harsh lines only make it worse, by directing the attention to the aesthetic limits of the bokeh effect (which is an elaborate way of saying the bokeh on those blade doesn't look too nice), and away from the subject.

- The main subject doesn't stand out enough, regardless of the previous point. Perhaps it is not sharp enough. But maybe this would be helped by increasing the general contrast and/or saturation of the shot. And possibly play with curves and individual colors a little bit...

All this IMHO of course.

Keep up the good work. You've got great talent to convey your delicate sensitivity.
