    I used a + 3Close up lens and a polariser.

    I think maybe the daisies could have been a bit higher in the frame?

    I really like it - possibly could have been a little brighter as you said... but over all - nice shot!

    I'd definitly say put the daisies higher up in the frame.

    I like the daisy, maybe try cropping the 1/2 top off to a panoramic shot or 1/3 off left & 1/2 top

    Keep up the Good Work

    Now who of you all took this other, most amazing daisy picture the other day, the one about which I asked "How on earth were you positioned to take it?" - where is is again? What was the title of that thread? That was a very good example of a very interesting camera position for a daisy pic.
    Let me go look for it, and I might edit the link into this post...

    Editing in:
    Ah yes, it was the BigRC who took "his" daisy portrait and it is here:
    http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6500&sid=ae62b24aa037ff148c8927400035ecca

    Now how on earth would I quote this pic by getting it into here for some direct viewing?

    Personally, I like it the way it is. Don't know why. I just wish there was a little something more in the background, like clouds in the sky. It seems to have an Eastern feel to me, which follows a different asthetic than Western work.

    I agree with Mark about the eastern feel and I like it's composition and look a lot. The main thing that detracts a little for me is the lack of really sharp focus on any of the daisies and overall a little too cool in coloring. Increasing red and yellow ever so slightly in color balance and using some sharpening of the foreground might help.

    The sky seems a little dark in relation to the rest of the photo but I love the croping. Makes me want to put that on my desktop or something. It has such an open space feel to it yet very elegant. Great job!
