I'm not sure why, but I want to keep the photo bomb flower on the left :) Your constructive feedback on all aspects will be much appreciated. (re shutter speed: no tripod, unsteady photographer)

It is your prerogative to do as you wish Linda..since cropping is out of the question I would first suggest toning down whatever the white is lower stems…..then a possible touch of darkening of the browns. A very pleasant image Linda..

These are lovely. I really like the lighting. Brings me right to the subject and keeps me from being distracted by the background which is nice and dark; but also has some detail to it. A good solution.

Thanks for taking a look, Erich! The lighting somewhat flat, so I was inspired by works I've seen from most of you folks to go a bit more dramatic :)

If I hadn't seen, I would have rejected the idea, but now that I see it, I love it!
