    I really like this macro flower, you do not portray this flower as boring at all!

    absolutely right.... superb shot.
    if you want a picture of a flower, thats how its done :)
    no distractions... just a flower in focus and with sharp vivid colours.
    cant go wrong.... and you didnt :D

    Boring... dont think so :)

    Thanks for leading me to this one, Silverpenguin, I overlooked this one, indeed, you posted it on 20 April, which was two days before my daughter's Confirmation Day, which is why I was very, very busy with life (imagane that!) at the time.

    But it is STILL a beautiful picture of something as "normal" as a daisy ... and this is what I so like about photography, i.e. that you can make SEEN the beauty in what is so "normal", so small that many will overlook it. The macro photo picks it from its surroundings, "underlines" it, as it were, puts it into the foreground, into the focus, and HONOURS it in that manner.

    Like you did with this daisy!

    And the background (not to forget THIS background! ;)) is a WONDERFUL colour!!! Of course!!! :lovey:
