  • Support. Seems to tick the boxes. A single plant would maybe be preferable as it would remove the slight overlap, but this is OK. Slightly narrow DOF, but the main stuff is in focus. --jjron (talk) 10:00, 22 June 2010 (UTC) Preference to new Edit 1. --jjron (talk) 09:14, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Edit 1 Very pretty flower, and a nice neutral background that does not distract. — raeky (talk | edits) 19:54, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose I think there's not enough light. --Desiderius82 (talk) 05:48, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Edit 1 Lighting is good and the background is clear. I uploaded the edit since it seemed to be about 2/3rds of a stop underexposed. You might want to do it yourself if you have a RAW or something, but the loss of precision shouldn't be too bad here. A focus stack might have gotten more in focus, assuming it wasn't windy etc. Noodle snacks (talk) 09:30, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Thanks for that, Noodle. I suppose I could have done that myself, but I didn't "see" the need until it was done. I tried some focus stacks on some mushroom shots, but almost all were unsuccessful... still need more practice with the new gear. Sasata (talk) 13:28, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support, prefer edit. A nice shot, and the lighting twitch brings it out that little bit more. J Milburn (talk) 12:09, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
