it is important to know the rules and know them very well to overcome them, observing, experimenting and finding innovative solutions; a very good picture, fine details and splendid colours.
Have a good weekend

Hi laszlo,truely and excellent work.Not easy a total focus and sharpness in a macro of a flower like that.Magnificent light position to create this nice and brilliant effect,the pink hearth is wonderfull! Thanks for share,have a nice weekend,Luciano
You pose the problem of the rules..now, I would say that the rules depend of many factors. For example the rule of thirds is mainly usuful for pictures with horizontal framing. For square or vertical framings there are other possibilites. What concerns close-ups I think that this rule cannot often really be used, and that for this kind of pictures more centred presentations are more effective. Now, what concerns your picture. The colorful impact is the first we see. And then my eye misses something..You have cut a part of the head of the flower which I think you shouldn't have done. Is just like something lacking. At least in my eyes. I think the best indicator for a balnaced presentation is your own eye, but the rules might help too. And sometimes to ignore rules , helps to be creative!
I wish you a nice weekend

What a splendid photo. Your POV was perfect here with a very beautiful centred composition. Excellent sharpness, details, DOF and natural colours.

To me the 'rule of thirds' seems most important when it comes to landscape photography, but so what, today the greatest photographers make their own rules!! It certainly doesn't worry me at all in this kind of floral photography. It's a beautiful macro showing sharp details and wonderful colours.
TFS and best regards, Ulla

I agree with Anel's critique above about the application of the "rules" with macro's. What strikes me most about your photo here are the beautiful translucent colours. You really captured it well and presented it equally well here. Very well done indeed.

Aesthetically the main photo is better (well defined simple subject, wonderful rich colours, very good sharpness on the subject against the blurred BG)
Your photo in the WS is well composed with wonderful colours but the main subject is too small and the BG is too complicate.
Although the main photo is better than the WS photo, personally I find the WS photo more interesting because I can see the whole plants and their habitat.

Sometime is good to break the rules. In fact, there were made to be broken! And the results could be much more better and appreciated! You have emphasis the little flowers, common for asteraceae family. Well done!

simply pretty in good sharpness. The purple flower is so beautiful and you have defined it so nicely, in clarity and glows.
Splendid soft background is very enhancing.
