I recently went to the Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco, Golden Gate Park. It was very fun and I took alot of pictures.

I would appreciate comment and critiques!

My favorites are #7 and #15 both are very well composed. My only critic would be to clone out the out of focus flower in the bottom corner of #7 but that's just my personal taste.

Good job

Some great pictures in this set, especially the ones with the raindrops.

thank you all so much for the comments.

@silent1: i definitely agree with you now that you say it, the out of focus flower kind of draws ur eye away from the focused flower.

THANK YOU ALL KEEP THEM COMING, I NEED CRITICISM TO LEARN!!

They are all very nice, but I must admit that on some the focus is a bit mushy. It's not quite on (Although it is very close!) and it seems to start to usually blur on the flower, as opposed to the background only. Perhaps you should have used a slower aperture, but overall, great photos!

I really do like the raindrops exhibited on some of them. At times, I actually take a watering can and pour some water on flowers before I shoot, it gives them a really nice effect. A few years ago I won an award for using that technique.

Very nice set overall, particularly like the fly trap. I do agree with the above poster in that a few shots could of used a higher aperture value to get more of the subject in focus.
