Hi Caroline
believe it or not but I do not believe this story is true! ;-)
Anyway great compo and lovely BG with sharpness spot on and nice very shallow DOF

Simple but effective!
I love this shot, the focus is perfect where needed and the BG work fine.
This must go to my favourite gallery.


The flower, apparently some kind of daisy, looks very attractive in this picture, Caroline.
However, the subject is so small you could have got the entire flower into sharp focus. You have a good DSLR which can give you much better results.
Keep trying and I am sure you would soon be creating excellent pictures with it.

Hello Caroline

A very sharp DOF and good POV.The OOF BG is wonderful,I really like the colours.Well done with the lighting.The yellow centre of the flower makes an interesting focal point.Simple but beautiful.TFS


yes, of course like it for it's simplicity, natural beauty.
and the strange gloomy ambiance, the dark BG - the shiny petal.

Hola Caroline
Una compo muy interesante la que nos muestras, bonito fondo que contrasta perfectamente con la flor.
Un saludo

salut Caroline,
je reviens sur celle-ci qui me plaît beaucoup, la simplicité et le jeu de couleurs donne une vraie sensibilité.


Hi Caroline,
A wonderful artistic photo of this lovely flower. I like the shallow DOF you've used and the composition. The empty space around the flower is wonderful. Great work on the details and exposure. I might have added a bit more brightness in the BG.

Hello Caroline,
Some cows have really strange taste, I have discovered some to eat all they can find of dandelion!
This is an attractive image, well composed and with good details...
Narrow DOF works well and helps the daisy to really stand out, attractive cololurs too!

Hi Caroline, this is a very nice solo shot of the Daisy. The flower stands out well against your soft dof. Nicely positioned in the frame and the flower is nice and sharp with good colour and tones. Great composition.
