Red Gerbera Daisies

I almost can't believe that it's still snowing where I live :roll: So here I have another photo of my potted gerberas from last year: the natural colours were rich and saturated, especially the reds, so I did very little postprocessing on this shot.

Photo taken with Manual settings - the bokeh and shallow DOF are 100% natural and lens-made, no texture or digital effect applied.

Shot with a Canon PowerShot SX1 IS
Full View highly recommended | I hope you'll like it!

This is great! The bright red stands out, and really brightens the picture. It is also very detailed. I think you should frame it! Also, since the colors red and green are opposites on the color wheel, the daisies really stand out. The petals are sleek and beautiful. One of the reasons I like this picture is because it is photo-graphy. Not as many people post photos. The green background is really pretty too. And the lighting is really good. I think you should take more pictures of flowers, because this one is beautiful! Anyway, you did a great job!

This photo definitely has some wonderful colors going on in it. The blur/bokeh in the background adds to it, plus everything is sharpened very well.
However, I do not find the composition to be particularly unique or intriguing; it seems like a photo I may have seen before.
I think that the small flower at the bottom is distracting and does not add to photo; instead it leads the eye away from the center of focus. I'd like to see the photo a little bit less center, in general. Some asymmetry might help you here!
Overall, I think you display great technique and vision, just perhaps this photo is not the best representation of that.
Best of luck to you!
