    first two look pretty soft. third looks better in terms of sharpness for sure. i like the comp on it more as well. but you have a relatively low shutter speed going on even though you're not telephoto(55mm) for IS(1/16 is a biiiiit slow-sometimes if you're pretty wide you can get away with it...or on a tripod)...not to mention the ISO is a little high and that's what is giving you some crud in the shadow areas. could try opening up the aperture a bit...i think these were at f7. open her up as wide as she'll go(i don't remember what glass you have) and shoot a smaller group of them or a single rose or one out in front of the rest and make use of the narrow DOF to make it pop.

    I have nothing to say other than what Garett said...besides that I have to strain to read your watermark.

    I don't want the watermark to stand out. I sorta reluctantly put it on stuff anyway.



    And thanks for the help everyone. They were taken without a tripod, although I know I should have used one. Just some grab shots to experiment.

    set the black point in that last one so you don't see the wrinkles on the background.
