zoom in

Hi Howard,

I can see what you intend to portray, but might I suggest that next time you zoom way in to select few flowers so you can see the raindrops glistening? The background doesn't tell us anything. We want to experience the same thing you did, the freshness of these flowers and the glistening colors. To do that, you need to zoom way in and throw the background out of focus. I would have chosen that group of 3 flowers clustered in the lower left. Anyway, that's my opinion, give it a try next time. :-)

Is this comment helpful?

Photo Description

A heavy rain was followed by a burst of sharp sunshine and clearing skies. I like the way this clutch of flowers seems detached from its far less colourful surroundings. Maybe a tighter composition would work better.
