    Default what is this in my photo?

    I went to botanic garden and take quite a few photos. Most of them are fine, but there is one, see below



    On the top left corner of the flowere, there is some highlight. It looks like a reflection of the and I think i see myself inside too. However, there were no glass, no water, nothing reflective around and that's the only photo showing this reflection. Anyone knows what's wrong?

    Thanks

    below are a few others, pls give critics and comments, i'm very new in photography and need to improve a lot.

    Thanks a lot

    Go closer, crop tighter. Color saturation can be better.

    I have not try macro before, but i think it might be a small lens glare/flare problem?

    in my humble opinion, it could be light coming from your viewfinder. It advisable that you close it when you shoot using a tripod as in this case.

    Btw, nice pictures you have.

    It is ok to post photo here to ask if there is a problem. But full photos like you do and asking for critics is better in another forum like "photos galleries forum".

    For me, the problem is like water drop or condensation on UV filter.

    If there is nothing reflective around and ther are no near alternate light sources, I would have to say that it is most probably light coming from the viewfinder. You can either cover it up with your hand (if using timer) or keep your eye in the viewfinder when you take the shot. Usually cameras come with a viewfinder cover to avoid such occurence but I never use it cause it is difficult to put in.

    Try to look for a more vibrant background. It actually brings out the subject than to have a dull or black background. Also, it would be good to bring it closer to your subject. Too much spaces IMHO.

    Cheers
