Nice shot. I spend a fair bit of time waiting in the car for my wife as well ;)

Love that lens too! :)

not bad. The colors are nice. Good job thinking ahead and then enacting on that.

You know, I didn't realize this was in critique, so here's my input - maybe a touch of contrast boost here, particularly in the mid-range would help this. Also I'd like a more harmonious OOF swath of flowers back there; it seems cut off to me. Otherwise, good job.

Is empty back there, background is neighbors driveway(along bottom)grass and dark green bushes in back.Have to pay more attention to empty backgrounds.

I did not realize it was the critiques thread either. D'oh!

I really like the composition with the empty triangle in the upper left. I like the focus and the colour and brightness just the way it is. The water drops indicate a grey and drab day and that's what I feel even though I'm looking at a very lovely flower. Of course, I'm on my work computer so maybe I'm being fooled. If there is anything I would do to make this image stronger I would chop off the right hand side very close to the right-most petal of the main flower. This would move the flower out of the centre and give more strength to the negative space.

I love the colours here. Nice shot!

Of topic, but can you use the Sigma 70-300 on a 5D?

Thanks for comment on the lilly shot.
im sure the 5d can use the sigma 70-300mm(made for canon),a nice " L" lens would be nice for the 5d,my 50d will have to wait for one of those.
