    I want honest critique and advice from all of you here. Or at least those of you here with a clue :p

    Speak up, PLEASE! I think I did good here... but I'm a little biased in my direction, of course.

    Lens flare can never lose. Add more lens flare

    I made an action in photoshop to make the text a while ago, and just put my name and 2005 there *shrug* it's just a text layer of papyrus font in photoshop. I run my pics through PS to resize anyway, so may as well handle it while I'm there.

    The flowers don't really stand out. Add a bit more contrast maybe?

    the flowers dont stand out to me, my attention is grabed by the background instead of the flowers

    if you lose some of the sky, your focus will turn more to the flower than the beach/sky.

    Yes...and in this case I think it turned a terrible picture that is boring to look at into a great masterpiece which could be framed and sent to a gallery.

    You took the two most redundant picture ideas and combined them, and I really like it! In this case, the flowers would have been boring alone and the ocean would be boring as well. Together though, I think it looks good.

    I really like your work....we should colaborate on a picture sometime. A lens flare picture for the fans of lens flares. Something that would make even people who hate lens flares respect them.... I am thinking a black background with just a lens flare. And maybe the title "Lens Flare" spelled out in lens flares....

    That might be a little much, how about we take a picture of the sun, then use some lens flares to really even out the tone of the picture?

    Its a nice composition, but you really have to up the contrast and exposure on this baby, its pretty under exposed.

    Yeah...that might work

    Can we still call it "lens flare" and write "lens flare" in lens flares?
