Hello Charlotte,
welcome to TrekNature, you starting off with a nicely composed picture.
I like the use of space and placing of the subject. The colors and scenery is wonderful. What could be improved is the straightening of the horizon. All in all a nice composition.
Looking forward seeing more of your work

Hi Charlotte!

Sky's right on the good composition, colors and the horizon too.
What I would add is on one hand I think the picture is a bit soft, I would have used a much bigger dof to make it all the way sharp. On the other I like the shadow of the flower very much, it gives more life to your picture.

You have the eyes and all to make such beautiful photos, so keep on posting, you'll see it is worth! And I suggest to browse others' shots too, write critiques and read replies, you can learn a lot from that too!

Welcome to TN, you made a very good start!
Best regards,

Hi Charlotte,

I love your picture. The composition and the colors are beautiful.


Sky's right on the good composition,

Nooo...do not straighten the horizon!!! The horizon has never been straight...what does "straight" mean...horizontal? Relative to what? However, a Frangipani does not belong in that environment unless it was a very special circumstance. But very good entry....never worry about the horizon. Apology to Skyf.
