I like the colors and exposure in this shot. I don't think the light areas are a problem. The only problem I see are the remains of the brown pod the flower emerged from. Although it violates the photographers rule of not disturbing nature to get the photo you want, I think I would have tried to peal some of that brown skin away from the flower.

The composition is very good..

Beautifully done! The color, lighting and composition are on target. I personally don't subscribe to the active primping of nature so my shots tend to have dead flowers in the bunch.

Beautiful photo! Sorry Cal, but I'm with Selvin on this .......... don't change a thing! The brown leaf/skin is as much a part of the dafodil as the green and yellow. I'm all for keeping it natural.

Nicely done.

Very nice shot, squirl. Did you actually spry some water to get take the picture or is it just morning dew? I like it!

The diffused lighting is really nice and really makes the yellows pop. Everything always looks so clean and fresh after a rain or shower as your image clearly shows.
