Took a shot of these beautiful white flowers using my Canon PowerShot SD 870IS Point and Shoot.

I think the frame you chose is basically killing the picture. Without that it would look much better. Also the picture is a little bit to blurred!

I feel the same, the same go for that "glow" you added to the image doesn't really work with this type of subject in my opinion. :)

Thanks for sharing!

I'm going with my hunch in saying that perhaps the glow was added because the DoF was too great in the original image...

The framing is the most obvious flaw - try and keep to neutral colours for frames so you don't draw the eye away from what is the main part of the image - white, off-white or black are commonly used.

Would you agree with me that converting this photo into a B&W would help that? Or i m just on the wrong track here, with a slight contrast boost?

It needs a reduction in contrast. There's so much white already and not much colour that a monochrome conversion would lose whatever impact's remaining. Frame removal (or replacement with a simple white or black border) and getting rid of the white glow will make this image much stronger.

Thanks all for your reply. I was not sure what I was thinking on why I used those kinds of framing. And the vignetting effect just made it worst. Anyway, here is the original picture. Just thought you guys might want to see the original. this was taken with my point and shoot(canon)
