Gotta say I'm pretty happy with the new 14-54 to get shots like this on the first night (considering my limited experience with flash photography). It's WAY better than my kit 14-45 was. I'm one very happy camper!

I agree Ingrid , this looks quite professional ,
I would add a little space above the tulip and cut 1/4 from the bottom..IMO it would benefit the image....;-))

Nice picture Ingrid, beautiful colors. I am agree with Fons, you could crop the bottom and maybe to move a little to the right. Did you use a difussor with your flash ?. Best regards, Ricardo

Thanks a lot for your input guys. I'll rework it and see how it looks. I did have the diffuser on the flash so that it didn't blow out the image at such close range. I feel some of these shots were just pure luck but if I can keep being lucky that will be good.
