It is due to the "Rule of third" or "Golden Ratio".
See these images-




When you divide a frame in 3 equal parts, both horizontal and vertical, you get this. Rule of thirds states that either place your object on the left line or the right line. This off- center composition is more pleasing to the eye and looks more natural.

That's a nice pic especially for an iphone without any editing, etc. On thing I think about in general is to check what else will show up in the pic. It probably would have been improved visually if the straight dead leaves were removed especially the one closer to the flower.

Here's a single tiny flower taking with my 60mm macro.

EVERYONE IT IS CALLED "CRITIQUE THE PHOTO ABOVE YOU"...

Lots of Hypocrisy here

Anyway that's a nice shot, I like the color of the sky from the 'light'

Here's one just fooling around with my macro lens. Can you guess what it is?

Very cool shot. Definitely doesn't look like mushrooms...not sure what it reminds me of, but I like it...and for a cellphone shot it's pretty nice.

Left this one slightly under-exposed for mood...let me know how it works...

kubalik - Light source is the moon?
aokashi - Yes, your right bell pepper.
Nubster - See where your going, really like the muddy dew on the leaves for some reason I want more contrast, but that could be me.

Caught this little guy, going back to my hotel at Universal Florida. Anyway I only had my 60mm on me. Here's the full shot and the crops. The power of cropping and MP

that 60mm is one sharp lens man !
... and the source is the sun actually (power of bringing exposure way down), but good guess anyways.

The third one looks cropped but the second one looks perfect. 60mm would be my next purchase
Here's a fishy shot of 3 pearl arowanas that I had 2 years back. And this shot is not al all PSed. 2 of them happened to turn at that moment, giving me this pic. Composition is not that good but just for the sake of moment-
