I took six frames like this with a 24 mm lens on my Canon 5D, but decided it was too wide. After pushing the two recently dropped flowers closer together, and bringing more of the litter closer to them, I turned to the 90mm macro on my 40D and got a ton of images like this:
Compositionally, this is OK, but the two flowers overpower each other rather than give balance to the image.
I decided to go in closer, and concentrate on only one flower. In my opinion, this is the best of the bunch, after I dragged it through Lightroom, Photoshop and Topaz Adjust:
Technical information is ... Canon 40D, 90mm macro lens, 1/80 sec (hand held), f/8.0, ISO 1600
I took a total of 144 images during this shoot in my front yard. I got one keeper. Not a bad outcome.
