Touch the sky

Thank you for all your comments yesterday, it was much appreciated. Away for the wedding stuff for a while and back to my one of my favourites................ yes flowers. Red flowers, blue sky and off camera flash equals this shot. I am undecided about this one and I can see some room for improvement so I will probably try and shoot it again.

What do you think?

hey asiko,

lovely capture. i really like the angle. the colors are great. two improvements that i can see would be to lighten the underside of the flowers in order for the details to come out more. the other thing would be to clone out the petal in the bottom left corner.

Lovely, but the lighting on the underside could be a little better, and the leaf in the foreground is a little imposing on the shot.

stunning with it's different perspective. the beauty of roses complementing the vastness and color of the sky.
lovely picture!
i like the angel you took for this picture. also the soft red and blue composition. i dont agree with Nicole to remove the leaf in the bottom left corner. i think that gave a unique perspective to this picture. but, i agree with Nicole to improve the detail of the flowers, or maybe give more sharpness to the flowers, because it is seems a little lost of focus i thought.
overall, i love this lovely picture!

Improvements have been suggested, love the contrast of the sky with the flower.... reminds me of one in my archives

you really do have an eye for these flower/nature shots...and I ask the same question I asked the last time you took a similar shot...HOW DID U GET THIS ANGLE?? were u in the ground? did u leave ur camera down there? pray tell..
sk: Ebun mind ur business, If I told U, I'd have to kill U. I'll tell U on friday when I see U.
sky like cotton, or watercolours: I like it. a question: did you use a flash light in this photo?
sk: yes alberto I used an off camera flash from the top of the flower
I always love your flower shots. like the perspective here.
sk: thanx Morenike
I like this shot the flowers look great. The leaf in the foreground is unbalancing the composition..it needs something there maybe the leaf being within the DOF? But its only a niggle of a lovely shot
sk: thanx Fantom, I will work next time to improve the composition
Hmm, he angle you have chosen to take this shot works really well. It looks like these are giant roses.
