    The second is an interesting concept, trying to get the daffodil from below with the sky as background, which -of course- made the use of fill flash necessary. I have tried the same before, out of the same necessity, but all in all I remain sceptical towards the use of on-camera flash, I don't like the shadows it casts.

    And yet, for some projects, mostly so if that is all you have, you just don't get around using it. Like here. Apart from throwing those shadows, it alos makes the texture of the petal really stand out.

    Nitpick: the flower is too much in the centre of the frame ... and I would have cloned out that leaf on the left...

    Great pictures but for the last one I would have maybe tried a HDR in order to get the colour of the sky AND get a brighter, better looking flower.

    I think # 2 is perfect just the way it is. I think the "not having your subject centered" is one big misconception that photographers have. Some of the best pictures I have seen would be ruined if they were off to the side a bit. Good job. *pat on back* :)
