Just some of my opinion. No right, no wrong.

1) messy background or not "blur" enough
2) Rule of Third
3) Up the contrast.
4) Did you take around noon time? Try to take early in the morning. They look much better IMHO.

yay, the pro have spoken...

anyway i agreed that the background not blur enough,but guess thats the limitation of fz camera... orchid flower grow too near each other and their large size doesn't really allow people to shoot too close...

I did shoot some, most done at f2.8-f4 with a normal zoom lens just for the background -_-" can't imaging that with a PnS sensor.

... noob oso wrong... anyway i can't only say it is hard for lumix to get blur background when shooting large flower like orchid (not counting those tiny species) unless you picked a very good location with a pretty far background from the subject. :thumbsup:

Actually if you take a closer look, you will realise that a lot of the flowers taken are like passport photos. Could have tried different angles to see.

erm, i don mean the angle, what i mean is the large sized flower and the thich dof characteristic of PnS sensor make it pretty hard to isolate(blur) the background.

I do agree that most of the shot are straight on and center-ly framed
