Photo Feedback: Week 11

It’s time for another edition of Photo Feedback.  I started this because I thought it would be nice to get more than the “nice shot” comment.  While those comments are so wonderful and they are very well received, these posts are to get real feedback to help grow in your photography. 

We all started somewhere and we all want to get better.  If you are not sure how to get your photos better, it is by critique.  Not just others critiquing your photos, but you training your eye to see things in other’s photos.  When you get so used to seeing those things, you will be surprised how you remember when composing your own shots. 

So I encourage you to join in.  The feedback is always delivered in a way to help build you up and improve.  The point of this is not to rip your work to shreds (along with your confidence).  So try it.  It’s not that scary, I promise. 


This shot was taken with my Canon 7D and my 50mm 1.8 lens.  I had my macro filter attachments on, as well.  I had on +1, +2, and +4. 

  • Aperture: f/8 (doesn’t really stay true with the filters on)
  • shutter speed: 1/30
  • ISO: 160

I am looking forward to your feedback!

Mom Tried It

Here are the guidelines for Photo Feedback:

  • The photo you submit must be your own.
  • The photo can be new or old, edited or SOOC, never a theme to adhere to.
  • When leaving feedback be sure to say something you like about the photo along with something you would suggest to improve the photo.
  • If you join in, please visit a couple of other participants too.  They want feedback just like you do. 
  • Please link back in your post with text or grab the button.
  • If you are going to have more than one photo in your blog post, please specify which photo you want critiqued.

The link up is live from Mondays (12:01 am) through Fridays (11:59 pm) CST.  So you have lots of time to join us.

*The code for the blog hop is at the very bottom. This is a Blog Hop! That means the link up will show up in your blog too and your readers can join in without having to leave your page.

I am really looking forward to reading your feedback.  Thank you for helping me get better.  I am learning so much from you!


  1. What a gorgeous shot!! B&W works so well in this, even though it might not be what you'd at first try with a flower shot. I love the composition and the cropping is just perfect.

    I really really hard to find anything to improve on this, it's just so lovely... - I'm wondering how the shot would look like, if the black space on the lower right corner was cloned with with petals..? Would it be a bit... fuller (if that's a word)? More complete in some way?

    I really like the 50mm f/1.8 lens, the DOP is so beautiful...

    1. sorry for the typing errors (really really, with with...), I was just typing away so eagerly... :-)

  2. I really like the softness and the detail you captured in the petals. At first I was thinking it might be better to brighten it, but then you would lose some of the detail you captured of the petals. Maybe clone out the blurred petals in the upper left hand corner? This image is so beautiful, it's hard to come up with something!

  3. Wow, what a great shot! It could be framed and put on a wall. I don't think there's anything really to improve on this one, it looks great as it is!

  4. Oh stop it! Seriously? I LOVE this shot!! Ha! What am I gonna say now, lol?
    I blew it up really big to try to find something nit-picky but I really love it just as it is. The only thing I can say is I might light it with just a touch of brightness. Seriously though, it's gorgeous and I love the composition, DOF, sharpness, tones. I don't even think I'd like it any better in color.

    Sorry. It's just fantastic.
