Flower portrait prints
Lens: m50 1.4 Camera: K-r Photo Location: Aiea, HI ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/4s 

I got a request for some photos to fill an empty wall at my parents house. I decided to take some images of some flowers that my mom had around the house. Instead of taking the photos on location, I brought the plants indoors and set up a black cloth as a backdrop. Good idea? Too boring? Anyway, these were shot with my K-r with my Pentax m50 1.4 on a tripod. Post inlcuded vignetting and sharpening. Printable or try harder?

thx.

I like both of them.
Good comp. good color.
Some people prefer the black background and it looks great in these two.
Not so sure about the slight vignetting on the bottom one.
In the end it's effectiveness could depend on the frame.

Two winners!
I'd be tempted to try removal of the bloom in the left background of the first photo.
And you might want to try toning down the hot spots on the two brown buds at far right of that first photo.

Excellent catch, didn't even realize those highlights ... now it's all I see.

love them both! well done. if anything i might crop them to remove some of the black space so that the 'main' flower filled more of the frame. really nice work.
