Truly beautiful! I love those leaves!

Shabbat shalom,


Hi Ori,

You added the background, didn't you?
- the reported shade on wall from the flash was not cropped out for the lower right leave.
- the image cutting is further OK but when pasting above the background the edges remain too sharp.
- The DOF is impossible: all in focus on the subject, while with the same blur for the background with no account of the distance.
- light direction on the subject and in the background doesn't fit.
- different ISO on the subject and on the background.
- normally for good composition you let see just a little bit of ground where the flower originates instead of cropping just above it. If opting to switch background you can't do that, and it results in a big minus for the composition.

Please do not take any offence for my critique. TN was meant for learning in first and for writing to each other usefull critiques. It's a pity in my opinion that most of users never do. I enjoy myself receiving usefull tips. I further enjoy your work. You do have a nice large set of brilliant pics posted on TN.

Best regards
Thanks for sharing
