No clue as to what it is.
Canon 20D, EF85 1.8, 1/800 @ f1.8 ISO100. Cropped quite a bit. Comments always appreciated, good or bad! Thanks.

Both photos are great. However, I am most attracted to the delicate quality of the Bay Magnolia. Thanks for posting.

Here's an Iceland Poppy or Papaver nudicaule. Taken in quite a strong light to add a "bit of drama" and to highlight some of the petal structure.
Canon A80, indoors, tripod, daylight, no flash, Ap. f/8, Exp. 1/3s, exposure compensation -2/3.
D Thompson I think your purple flowers may be a hardy geranium.

Wombat, that is an excellent photo, excellent choice of dramatic effect. D Thompson, I am drawn to the one flower in sharp detail with excellent color. thanks for sharing these pics.

These are some flower shots taken with the olympus 5500 in super macro mode. Probably shot with apperture 2.8
What should be improved do you think?
Ps. Why don't my photo's just show up? I am using jpeg as file format.

They are both very nice shots, but in the first picture you have some blown-out areas in the lower left. The second shot has a very nice background and you can see the difference as it gives a softer and more pleasing look.

Again nice shots. Any info on the typeof flowers?
