1. in what area is critique to be sought?
My 3rd attempt to take a photo of a flower. Did I get the basis right here?
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
I took a few photo of the orchid in my garden. Some individual, others with background. I choose this because I hope to bring out the vibrant color of orchid and the DOF effect.
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Mid morning using hand held, setting manual without flash. Should have used a tripod and remote. Will try again the next time.
4. Thread-starter's personal thoughts about the image?
Any advice or comments most welcomed.
