Daffoldils


These are one of the primary features in my grandma's yard. Spring has sprung and it's so very beautiful!

great colors. I like how it is bright light too. I think of yellow, those flowers and bright sunlight all together so it was perfect for me.

Interesting angle that really changes how this type of picture would normally be viwed - i think it works out really well! My suggestions: picture appears shot in mid-day (harsh) light, take the picture in early or late light, the magical horus immediately following sunrise and preceding sunset, while i like the angle and composition, image could have been more dramatic with the other flowers more out of focus, zoom in as close as you can (back up if necessary) and open your aperture as wide as you can, and finally, and this is a great trick with flowers, get a spray bottle with water in it and gently mist your flowers before photographing - the mist adds little photogenic droplets and seems to invigorate the flowers a little (you can also set up a sprinkler in the backgroun - careful not to get yourself or the camerea - and shoot with a slower shutter speed to blur the water droplets in the background).

Wow! That was some good ideas. Usually I do try to take outdoors pics at the times you talked about, but I was at my grandma's for lunch and she wanted pics of her flowers, so I didn't have the advantage of getting to take them when the lighting was best. Thanks for all that info, though, the spray bottle is a great idea I hadn't thought of at all! :)

Love this picture! You are doing such a great job with all your "missions"!

I like the tilt you have going on here- and the vibrant colors. I think cropping a little tighter and vignetting would really make the yellow pop.
