I had some pretty daffodils to take photos of. It's been a while since I've had fun with some flowers, and well, the little series that came out of it wasn't the best I've made, but I like it - I would love to hear some comments :)

The whole series:

What do you think of the colors? Is the background too dark, or should the colors in the background be different? What does the photo make you think of? Any technical advice will be very appreciated :)

I think the darker background works really well with the flower. It helps it pop. The little piece of another flower in the bottom right corner is a little distracting.
With some editing, I really think you could make these images pop. Yellow is so fascinating.

i luv da lil wrinkles on the daffodils leaves. gives a really strong sense of sensitivity and mayb insecurity!
wat mite b interestin is if der was a vry bright light on the right side which would give a much darker shadow jus on the lower left side.....

Like Instant-Ocean I think the background goes along greatly with the flower, also the flower could look much better if the yellow was a brighter. In general the picture looks great so it's all up to you. :p

Note: The comments are given as part of the joining process of the "Give Me Feedback" group.

First off, the positive. I love the framing of that shot and the high contrast that is rendered by a good subject/background match. The yellow of the daffodil makes a stunning impact on a "purplish" background. The blur in the background is perfect and I don't notice any noise in it, it's very smooth and pleasing.

The thing I would try to make that picture even more stunning is to slightly increase the yellow saturation of the flower and, depending on what that change makes, maybe slightly increase the luminosity. I think a Hue/Saturation layer with a mask could do the trick here.

Lastly, and this is purely based on what effect you wanted to have on that picture, I wonder if a different aperture would not have been better, meaning that I would have preferred to have the entire flower in sharp focus while keeping the same amount of blur in the background. Then again, this is an artistic choice and might not be in accordance to what you wanted. I just wonder how the same shot would have look with a different D.o.F.

In conclusion, I really like that shot and in my opinion, it's the best one out of the entire series.

Good work! :)

This reminds me of a raw photo vs. a jpeg. The raw has much more natural and softer colour, but the jpeg brightens and auto-edits and image. The picture looks very nice, but I also think it would be fun to see what you would do with lighting. My mom has a very cool picture of light coming through blinds onto a piano that really brings out the light and shadow.

Good luck with angle here~
But it is truly a bit washed out... Maybe a bit of contrast in yellow will do?
And to my mind - it's the best photo in the series, well done. ^____^

I think the background would look better if it was lighter.... The blacks and blues make the yellow look a bit stark and washed out... One of the things I love about it is the purple in the background. A pale purple and white background would look really awesome. Maybe with a little pale green mixed in? I'm in a spring-y mood =) The dark background doesn't seem natural, it makes the photo look staged. Also, if the photo was shifted to the left a little so the blurry bit of flower on the right wasn't part of the shot, I think it would have more impact that way.

The more I look at this the more I like it... My main suggestion would be the background, though.

Great work =)

The only thing i think i see with this pic, is that compared to the other pics in the series, this one looks just a tad washed out. Other than that, great job with the camera because when I try to take a pic like this it blurs! lol

These are amazing. I love the way the lens blurs the far edge and then the nearest edge is crisp and clear like it is actually touchable. Great work! :hug:
