indian paintbrush plus other flowers

With a bit more practice I got this shot of an indian paintbrush and other flowers. I am trying to improve my technique. I might get slammed for saying this but I think the k-x with a good prime takes better pics than my old Canon 5D with 70-200mm 4L.

These are very pretty, especially the first one and the last one, but I think that they are all definitely missing something very easy to fix. The contrast on them is just too low so they look very cold and flat, if you increased the contrast though I think that they would look so much better.

These are some very pretty flower shots! Out of your set I really like the third one the best because that purple flower is so pretty and it contrast well with the green and orange background. Thanks for sharing this great looking photo!
