"Photo taken in Wellington Botanical Gardens on our recent holiday trip to Wellington. For me it symbolises the three of us - myself, my hubby and my son." - Amelia Armstrong
Lovely flowers and great colours. Earthy tones are in trendy this year and they go great with gentle white flowers. You did a really great job with the colours, the shallow depth of field is also great with the background is completely blurred and absolutely no distraction, not even a single leaf is standing out - Well done!
How This Photo Could Be Improved
Two things could be improved on this photo.
First is that your flowers are not sharp enough. That’s a shame because emphasising textures is a very important part of nature photography. The pollen and stamen should be crystal clear with every line visible.
It’s not actually a focus problem, it’s about selecting the right ISO and shutter speed combination. You used pretty high ISO (500) and not so high shutter speed (1/180).
