Perfectly pleasant flower pictures...

Try another perspective, blurr, insects in real macro, decay, ... anything to achieve something extraordinary.

Peter.

I agree with Peter about trying other perspectives.

I'm not trying to be ugly here, just honest, but the OP's shots aren't anything so outstanding and literally any digicam could have been used to shoot the exact same shots with the same amount of quality. Even most cell phones now-a-days could have achieved these same shots.

I too, like one of the previous posters, love shooting these types of shots, and I have many, mostly of lantana, or other similar flowers.

When shooting these types of "close up" shots, composition is a must to make them really stand out, since they aren't true macro, and since tiny blossoms like these can tend to be not so regular in shape.

We all have to start somewhere when learning how to use our gear.
