Gerberas are perhaps my fav kind of flowers, both for photo-taking and personal admiration. Simple yet brilliant. Hope this one will bring a smile to your face if the day has been bad. :)

nah i think it's a great shot
i like the background maybe the unbloomed flower at the bottom left is abit distracting but other than that, its great!
since the flower already has detail. i like the background to have a little "action" too.

Thanks megaweb and quackaroo. I wanted a frontal shot of the flower, so I didn't have much choice over the background. ;) Hehe but I think the gerbera itself is so pretty (I mean the flower, not my shot) that I don't really get distracted by the background...

anyways, Happy New Year folks!

Agree. But the sharpness of that flower should be enough to bring your attention back to it.

NineLives, spot-metering on the center will over-expose the entire shot although I agree that the center is a little under-expose hence lost of clarity. The background is a little distracting, especially the white areas. One way to overcome this is to use either a black card/cloth/jacket (ask your gf to hold it;put her to some good use :>) or use flash with high shutter speed to throw the background into darkness. Otherwise, very vibrant colors and good sharpness on the shot. Agreeing, Gerbera is a very beautiful flower to admire though difficult to grow :(
