    C&C please. i added some punch and sharpening in LR using presets, but otherwise they are straight out of the camera. Gelled my SB800 about 6 feet away and to camera right and high, using some late evening sunlight through the window for ambient - shot with my tamron 90mm.

    I had these sitting on my piano, I haven't really figured out a good place in my crappy house to use as a backdrop for pictures yet.

    Thanks guys. I tried shooting at a higher stop to get more DOF, but I couldn't get the light right for exposure so i found myself backing off aperature to get exposure right, but then closing in the DOF.

    The light in 1 looks really harsh and direct. Did you use the UMbrella for that one?

    I did use it, but it wasn't as far to the side as i wanted it because of the angle i was shooting. I was going for the window lighting the back of the flower and the light from the umbrella lighting the right side, but because of my piano in the way the umbrella ended up being positioned more to my 5 o'clock.
