I saw this exotic flower in botanical garden. I looks bit like star:D

:iconblogsobrelaarena: identified it as Passiflora edulis or passion fruit. and even gave me this two wikipedia info links: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passiflo… en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harmala_… . many thanks.
----------------

túto exotickú kvetinu som videla v botanickej záhrade. trochu mi pripomína hviezdu:D

vďaka blogsobrelaarena už viem, že ide o zástupcu mučeniek (Passiflora), ktorej plody sú u nás známe ako maracuja. link na info v slovenčine: www.kpr.sk/casopisy/index.php?…

Thank for your comments! Let me share a proper critique.

What I like:

1) Sharp - The Sharpness and Noise are nearly perfect!
2) Colors, you choose a great flower with a perfect color pattern. I notice you also found a nearly symmetrical flower. You have a good eye.
3) Framing, You have the leaves positioned so the lines on each leaf force the eyes to the center of focus. This is a perfect effect.

What I would change/try:

1) DOF - I would have opened it up JUST a touch to remove the blur on the top stamen. This may have required pulling back slightly with a prime lens.
2) Leaves --- I would have tried to get a bit more green.

What I hate: Nothing -- Very excellent shot.
What do you think?

If you want to use someone´s art, you should ask first. Actually, you HAVE TO ask first as long as artist doesn´t offer free stocks. For now, it´s all right, buit please ask in future.

When I 'critique' I like to leave comments about what I liked, what (if anything) I disliked and anything I felt could be improved! Ok, so!

Lovely picture! I love the colors of the flower, it's a very interesting flower! I liked the sharpness and the focus of the photo, with the background unfocused and soft and blurry.

I think that the perspective could have been better... Instead of just a flat front view, an angled view, from the side or from below.

I really wish I could critique this! You did an amazing job with the shot, the DOF is near perfect (I might have widened it just a touch). The colors are fantastic and the composition is perfect the way the leaves accent the shape of the flower! Great Job!

I love this. I like to take close up pictures of flowers as well, but this looks very much like a piece by itself, whereas I normally just take mine to paint the photos later, or to upload as stock. My second favorite thing, besides the flower, is the big leaf in the bottom right, it makes a great background.
