I like this Calee…..I like it a lot! Great colours and a nice sharp focus on the central flower. I like the background too.

Thanks so much, Mark! 🙂 I think the purple background matches the colours of the flowers quite well, but was impossible to find an angle without getting the other stems in the picture.. I did my best to blur them out.

I quite like the blurred green stems coming in from the right. Some might find it a little distracting, but I think it breaks up the background and adds interest 😊

I’m so glad you find something positive about that! I’m sure there’s a way to edit the picture and just have them removed, but I don’t know how. Thanks for your feedback, I appreciate you a lot! 🙂

Thanks so much, Heather!

Oh, it is so WOOOONDERFUL!! Some sort of orchid I guess? Mix of colours and also the one in the back make this more interesting than the awarage beautiful flower.

Thanks SOOO much, Bente! Yes, it’s an orchid, though I must confess I don’t know its name. 🙂

Beautiful! And I also love the blurry background.

Thanks so much, Kiki! 🙂
Great use of depth of field. With the lens opened up to f3.2 you did not have much of a margin for error in focusing and you nailed the focus. This was shot with your DSLR, wasn’t it?

Thanks so much, Mike! Yes, I used the 450D (Rebel) for this. My PS doesn’t go any bigger than maximum f/3.4-6.5.

I LOVE the colors and composition of this Calee ! I can see this on all sorts of media – cards, prints, etc. Beautiful.

Thanks so much, Emily! 🙂 I sometimes make my own birthday cards to friends, maybe this can be one too. 😉

Calee, this is an eye pleaser extraordinaire! The green and purple go great together.

Thanks so much, Wendy! 🙂 Green is my favourite colour, and I agree it goes well with purple. Hugs~
February 19, 2013 at 4:15 PM
Calee, I guess it wouldn’t surprise you that green is my favorite color too? 😉 Hugs! I have a purple and green blanket on my studio sofa.

That background adds a lot to the photo.
February 19, 2013 at 2:31 AM
I agree, the colour suits the flower well and i do prefer when there’s nothing else in the background to “clutter” the picture. 🙂
February 19, 2013 at 4:16 PM
Nice colors. Good catch.
February 19, 2013 at 3:10 AM
