I like the dark out of focus background but the flower (to me) looks almost cut out and pasted. Could this be from a little over sharpening?
Took a look again and it may just be an extremely sun bright yellow flower and a dark background.
I like the composition but the flower just appears overbright.

Might appear to be cut and pasted if you concentrate just on the brightest part of the flower, from a near perspective, but moving away a bit, makes the image look naturally highlighted IMO. Good one...best regards,

They maybe right but I'm not saying anything since I took some pics of daffodils a couple of days ago and a couple look like giant daffodil windmills ove my neighbors house.

I think it's a great mood picture. Dark and bright. Yellow and black. Good from darkness. All that kind of stuff. Really.

Good Luck

I really like themix of shadow and highlight on the flower. Plus no competing background. This is my favorite of your daffodil series.

thanks guys..

the 'cut and paste' look is probably from oversharpening on my part...

and a nasty halo around the flower...

i actually brightened the background quite a bit...it was in shadow with the flower in full sunlight...so it was nearly black..

Just revisited this for a peek...we will be looking at our own crop in our yard any day now. Seeing this I have the urge to try for a shot like it. I do like the color mix here...gold/yellow on a dark background. Our daffies don't stay in peak shape for too long but if I catch a good likeness I'll post...thanks, best regards,
