great use of B&W. love the DOF and brightness of the flower. draws the eye right to it

This is beautiful :) The contrast punch on this photo is just phenomenal and the soft background really enhances that quite a bit. I love a great black and white photo of a flower. Not many people ever explore this :) = 10

Excellent-- 8

Near perfection! This is a great b/w image. Nice tones throughout. 9 -danny

Good use of depth of field to create a very subtle "blank" space.

i think this is awesome! i would like to see a little more contrast in the flower, but i love the way it is separated out from the background.

Pin sharp and good background. 10

Great use of black and white. The clarity is excellent and the design in the flower is beautiful to look at.

I love your choice here to use B&W, and the border just adds the finishing touch to an already LOVELY picture!! Great job!! :)

Oh yes. Great use of DoF to create the negative space. Focus on the daisy is spot on.
Would love to see the colour version after the challenge, I have a feeling that I would like it even more, but that's down to personal taste.
I think a white border would suit the shot better than the grey, but pffft what does that matter.
'Only' a 9 because it leaves me wanting to see colour.

Very good picture! Good choice to have it in B&W. - 8

The stark contrast between the flower and the background is what makes this work for me. I think that this works alot better than a black or single coloured background. Good use of DOF to create your negative space, it almost borders on 3D.... one of my faves this week. Good Luck, Todd. 9

Good use of negative space. I would have cropped it tighter so the daisy was right up to the edge in the lower left hand corner.

Nice! Classic composition. Really like the black and white. Excellent border.

Negative space should have a purpose. This crop has no 'reason' other than to fit the challenge.

Was the colour too distracting to leave in?
08/18/2003 11:36:48 AM
This is one flower photo I REALLY like. The DOF, use of thirds and lighting mixed with a great subject all makeup a great compositional photo. Good luck !
08/18/2003 11:20:59 AM
Gorgeous tones. THe white and sharpness of the flower creates the negative space behind. 10
08/18/2003 10:47:26 AM
I love the simplicity of this shot. Clean and b/w is a great choice. 10

This pic is amazing, the B & W and the composition and the blurred background all together make for an excellent photo. I would have given this a 10 immediately except for two things. The border doesn't fit to the photo, it is distracting in a way and pulls my eyes from the beauty of your shot, this would have been far better without a border in my opinion. Also, (maybe I'm a little too picky now) the title is a bit unimaginative, but that isn't a big problem for me :-) (9)

A very nice pic. One of my favorites.
