I was at the Botanic Gardens the other day, and feel that this was one of the better shots from that day. This was my first attempt at these types of photos, so fire away with the critiques, good or bad.

I for one like it...don't know about the other 187 folks who have taken a gander... I started out in Macro and Landscape, so hopefully what I have to offer is valuable.

The subject is crisp, clear, and the color is wonderful. I assume you found this by chance, because the overall feeling of the photo is it is done with available light. Some may say that you need ring lights, backlighting, etc. But I have never used any of these devices, and my images regularly make their way into the pages of Circle of Photographers pubs.

One technique I like to use is to raise the camera a bit, so as to 'see' into the flower, but still have a large portion of the outer petal showing. This adds a bit of depth to your subject. Be aware, however, that light will 'get lost' in the deepest parts of the flower, so you must compensate for this somehow (over exposure might do the trick, but be wary of blow-outs); I will use fill from my flash.

Also, the garden setting you were in provides a grand benefit: no wind!

I find the DOF control to be well executed, and the background is pleasing, soft, and the other roses in the distance compliment your main subject well.

If you return, you might wish to try Super Macro shots, a prticularly difficult, but rewarding discipline. DOF and proper fill are a must, but the images can be quite stunning! These type shots usually consist of only the inner 1/3 of the flower.
