How would you compose it?

Different and unique. shoot it from the back. under, whatever. Make it stand out.The OOF pink in the back takes away and the crop kills it by cutting a Bud in Half. Negative space is just as or more important as the subject. you Learn that In painting and studying The masters.That goes for any Image you make. learn negative space. also..Throughout time the best Photographers were Big. Big Fans of painters. It's all right there.And has been for hundreds and hundreds of years. study the master painters My friend. seriously. everything you need to know is right there.

How would you compose it?

When doing any shot ask yourself what in the image do you want to showcase. What do you want to catch the viewer's eye.


In the case of a flower the answer is simple, the flower. When I look at this image what looks to be the main object when you consider size and elements of the shot are the two leaves and stems above it. They take up about 50% more of the frame and that makes them dominant.


I have always said pay attention to the whole frame. Get tunnel vision and you are likely to end up with things in the shot that do not belong or distract from the object of the shot. I would have looked at it from a different angle along with finding a better example of a rose and give it more real estate as well as either shot it at a different time of day when the light was softer or used some type of fill. All of these things make the difference between simply taking a picture and creating an image. What we call Make the shot, don't just Take the shot.
