Playing with Composition
I'm trying to be more cognizant of backgrounds. Even stuff that's supposed to be there (like leaves) can detract, it seems. Blurring it out isn't always an option (although I suppose with editing/post-processing/whatever you want to call it, it could be) so it seems like a good idea to compose well in camera when possible.
I like the red in this, but wish it went higher up into the picture. Since it's a counter top and not a wall, that's not likely, though, unless I tip the flower pot on its side ;-)
