This set is from my very first shoot last month. This was taken as a result of unsurmountable and unrelenting peer pressure :) ... jokes apart, most of these pics were taken at a florist's shop on CMH Road, Bangalore. The florist's watering of the flowers gave an added look of freshness. I set the camera on a vivid setting so I could get good saturation. Some of the focussing could have been better. It will improve next time!

  8. Yes, the water drop on the red flower (first snap) is deceivingly genuine. Are you sure you didn't plant it right there before you took the shot? Just joking...!!
    By the way, would be nice to know what each of these flowers are called.
