A peony photographed just as the rain started with a Canon 1100D camera and a Canon 100mm macro lens handheld.and the background darkened in Photoshop Elements. I welcome criticism on all my works as I could learn so much from this, so please do tell me how I could have or could still improve this shot. Do you think the peony itself is too dark?

    This is an instant fav Pauline, its amazingly beautiful and one of your best! I think the peony with its luminous colours looks fantastic and the dark background gives it feeling of mystery and intimacy…
