Re: Samyanged Snowdrops

Forgive me if i'm spoiling the mood of this thread...I don't mean to ....but as this is LFI I hope you forgive my comments
...event though its a 7.5mm lens I think the central stems could be more vertical, the immediate background could be tidied up - by removing dead leaves and the compost on the left, and compose with a darker background. Just my opinion.

Re: Samyanged Snowdrops

Thanks Brian. Valuable comments. Especially re the central stems. I'm never in favour of "gardening" as it's my style to take it as it is.

Re: Samyanged Snowdrops

John P (Zuiko) is the snowdrop afficionado - anyway, I like this but my slight niggle is that the lightness of the blossom is competing with a light background. I wonder if it would have been possible to move around so that the darker silhouetted trees in the background could provide better contrast for the flowers?

Thanks Ian - that may have been a possibility, although they were on a slope so I would have been shooting down-hill and from the backs of the flower heads. I'll check next year.
