I have never seen this before so thanks for the introduction. The obvious question since you mentioned it is within the potato family, is whether it has any edible parts such as a true potato?
I just wonder if a vertical composition might not have suited this photo much better. That way you could have shown both the top and bottom flower completely as well, anyway it is just my opinion. What I can suggest though, is the fact that while it seems you actually focused on the flower in the back as it shows up with far greater details than the flower in the front is to rather keep the focus on the main attraction which will obviously be the flower in the front. The colours look good and the BG is sufficiently removed to give a pleasing effect on the main subjects. The exposure was also well managed and there are no areas of OE visible on these whitish flowers.
Well done and TFS.
Are this vegetable eatable? The flowers are superb for a potatoe plant! You managed the exposition very well and the colors looks very natural... Good pov and composition! Details are superb. TFS,

Hello Janice, interesting hsot. I wonder why it is called henbane? Is it poisonous to chickens? :-)
It's an interesting looking flower, I think it could be a little brighter and maybe a portrait format shot would be more apt with three flowers in the frame. A little more DOF would help too.

what an interesting form these flowers take,I rather like the textured veining in the blossoms and the understated quality of the colour of these blooms.Your field of depth was too narrow as the front bloom is a little off focus but other wise really an excellent composition and I do like it.Tfs.

Very colorful image. Not to repeat too much of what has been said about DOF, its always a problem with multiple flowers like this - its really lamost impossible to have enough DOF to get everything sharp.
