Hi Mohammed! Welcome op TN! This is a very nice close up of thos flower and the DoF is good!

About the composition, I would just crop a little the top and the bottom of the picture but it is only my opinion...

Welcome on TN Mohammad. Nice flowers and strange effec with focus in the centre part of the picture.

Welcome too, Mohammad, and thanx for this lovely bunch of flowers. Dof is a slight problem, but sincethis comes form yur heart to this site, a big smiley

Hi Mohammad, good to see you here, too ;-))
Beautiful flowers you've selected for us, but like the others already pointed out you get a problem with DOF when going for a clump of flowers this big. Generally, I think you'd get a better result by trying to isolate one or two flowers and getting them against a clean background of green, as this would make them stand out more.
It's a question of learning to see things the way the camera does and to act accordingly. If you look over this clump of flowers, you see them all sharp, because the human eye is much more versatile than the camera's "eye". But in the photo you get a section in focus in the middle of the photo and out-of-focus bits top and bottom.
For this shot I think I'd have gone for the in-focus flower on the right, as that one seems to be in a position where it may be isolated against the green background. If you'd moved a little lower and a little to the left and focussed on just the one flower I think you'd have gotten a much stronger photo. I hope this makes sense?

Hello Mohammad nice to see you here.

The colours are great, I think that a cropping on the top gives a better composition, farther it's nice, good job

Welcome to TN Mohammad, intresting first post a true alpine plant from your discription of the location. the colours are beautifull and the centre of the image is very nicely sharp, though I would like to see a little more DOF to bring a few more of the flowers at the front into focus,( just seen bentes note it is spot on init expanation of how to do it)
some where in your original picture file should be the details of the camera setting it / you used, with that information we are able to make beter educated insruction of making improvements if any to you beautiful pictures. again thank you for sharring

A very nice first entry for TN, Mohammad. Beautiful colors, and regarding the "centric" focusing I think Bente's suggestions regarding focusing and use of DOF are extremely helpful. Good shot, thanks for sharing.

This is some shot here Mohammed! Great first post for TN, and I love the different depths of field, quite interesting. Beautiful colors and well composed. I think maybe a tighter crop from the upper right is all I might try.

Beautiful capture!

Hi Mohammed.
It's a good picture, the colours are great.

Nice colors but the flowers in front take too much place to be out of focus. It's only my point of view.
Thank for sharing.

Very nice, I like especially that some flowers are out of focus. The plant name is Crucianella stylosa. Ori
