Hy Dorji
It is impressive to see these rododendrons growing wild. In Europewe have plenty of cultivars, varieties in theparcks, gardens. But to find them just walking in the mountains,is amazing.
You are trying to prezent to us some interesting species, which, in my oppinion should more appreciated.
But, are two things that lack to your images:first, people like to read more notes about your subject, and I have no doubs that you know all these species, so you could document better your images.
Second, now to the pictures. I see that you are limmited by your camera.I understand. But still,in other two images I saw that the focus is somewhere behind the subject, so try fo focus on the subject,and because is a digital camera, take more shoots and home compare them and post the best one.I think that you are gooing too close to your subject, so this is the reason that the camera focus behind. So, move around the subject,and beeing flower,you have the advantage that are standing.
I am wayting for sharper mages, and then maybe we will speak more about compozition, some post processing stuff...
