    #8 appears to be a hyacinth. I like #1, and #2 is almost haunting (in a good way)!

    nice... I like the black and white best because the colours look a bit weird... over exposed or burned... or too saturated for me... but this is a common problem when shooting flowers in full sun. And remember about focus - in the last one it is the ground sharp - not the flower

    I like #1. The colors are a bit over the top but it works for me. #6 is a Double Daffodil.

    Thanks for your flower insights, digital.
    Mentos... do you have any idea how to lessen that full-sunlight oversaturation? I had tried just toning down the saturation in each picture, but didnt like the results much. Any tricks or tips for that?

    I would like the orange tulip on Photo 3 best of all (most interesting point ot view) if not your focus had slipped beyond the flower itself in that one, too.
    And I took a photo of a tulip field in DC in the fullest of a full sun and even on my little display it looked odd, like a graphic, a painting, but not like a photo, and the effect has not changed. It still looks all wrong. I could show it just to show how funny the outcome can be if you shoot intensely coloured flowers in bright sunlight.
