    Its a rather cliche looking shot, but aside from that - I like to get your thoughts :)

    Seems a little dark to me. Other than that, it's nice. Might be kinda neat to see it with a slightly tighter crop? I dunno though.

    I'd cut the left edge and bottom on a crop. Having said that, it's much less cliche for having multiple daisies and not just one. With a crop, I reckon it's a great shot.

    It's nicely done. I wouldn't call it cliched as much as just an exercise in "fill the frame" technique. I like how you've brightened the single flower to break the pattern slightly. It's actually very nice. :D



    Now, get back to the B&W! :twisted: (You know I'm gonna keep nudging you, right?) :wink:

    thanks for your eyes & comments - dodged the daisy that was sharp and used a burn mask for the rest - realise with the DOF it probably didn't need the mask so I removed it and did ye ol' square crop on this (I dig square crops :))

    Wow! Great re-work on this picture. I really like square crops as well.

    I prefer the closer crop also plus it's not so dark

    That square one is so much different from the original. It just seems so much more intense, and I like it!
