These are some flowers from around my neighborhood. Let me know your thoughts on how they could be better.

alex, I can see em...and I see a giant bumble bee in the first one!! Whoohoo, looks like he is having a great day buzzin around.

I am not the best at critiquing, but what I would enjoy seeing is a clear and concise focus on the first one...love the subject, but my eye roamed around trying to pick one thing...I liked the bee. See if you can use the rule of thirds to a little more of your advantage, but overall, I like these, they have good color, and that is something I really appreciate. Think that once you stray away from plunking something down in the middle of the shot, it will be perfect...

good on you, Alex..

Patti,
I agree, the first picture is too busy. It would have been better if only the flower with the bee in it was in focus. I snapped it in a hurry trying to ensure the bee didn't get away. I should have taken my time as he was there for a while.
