Symbols of Easter

Nikon D90, f4, 1/500, iso200, 50mm, no flash
I was excited to find this photo opportunity on our Sunday walk today... the cross, symbolizing death, and the daffodil, symbolizing life. I love spring bulbs that come up without fail after a long winter of sleep. It reminds me of the words to a hymn we sang in church today...
"Lives again our glorious King. Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once he died our souls to save, Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!"

Daffodils are my favorite flower. I love how bright and happy they are and here I love how that yellow just pops. The only cc I'd say is to maybe offset the two images so that they aren't quite so clost to being in line- but that's just my style. I guess it depends on what your going for. Great job with the focus area it really beautiful
