I like the simplicity. I would like to see it with an extreme crop putting the flower in the very upper right.

I really loved the way the flower was shot with the shadow. However, the positioning of it in the shot seems a little off to me, like if you moved more towards one of the corners it might have been better.

This works "ok". I think you lost a little bit of detail in the flower petals somewhere in the process. Not bad, but not jumping out and saying "wow, look at this". Hope you know what I mean by this. Haven't decided if I like the shadow or not. I think it adds more than distracts because of the size of your subject in the framing of this composition. All JMO of course. :D Best of luck to you in the challenge.

looks a little burned out rather than white

Great shadow. Daisy looks a bit washed out, however.

Delicate! The petals almost disappear...but almost only. It is an image that rewards the patient viewer.

... ma forse troppo. I like the soft shadow of the flower but I would have appreciated more contrast.
