backlit effect with the yellow center is wonderful (that yellow border isn't working for me -- sorry) -- as presented one of my favorites this challenge

Hello! Love that backlighting. Not sure about the border though. Good luck DrAchoo or whoever it is. :P

beautiful lighting. I'm not keen on the yellow border, though.

Beautiful light on the daisy, great definition. Not sure if the squarish (not square, duh!) crop complements the image. I also think the yellow border doens't work all that well, it takes away from the lightness of the flower on the shite background.

Thinking about the border, I think it actually works. For one, it sets of the white beautifully. It also point to the yellow light in the middle of the daisy. Beautiful. Upping to 8.

Great exposure - good detail, nice use of negative space. I like the glow at the center.

Nicely lit! Great composition if a tad tight at the bottom. Lose the border and this would be a bit more powerful!

Que bella! (Did I get that right- sorry, don't know much Italian). Really lovely backlighting and the narrow band of yellow enhances the photo. The only minus IMO is that there is not quite enough breathing room below and to right of daisy.

Davvero? Che meraviglioso! Complimenti ;)

Very nice, it appears backlit. I might have positioned the flower higher in the photo.

2 / 3 Creativity - Ordinary/Common = 0.
3 / 3 Subject - Subject follow the challenge theme?
2 / 2 Technical - Focus, lighting, etc.
1 / 2 WOW - The hard to get points.
8 /10 Score - I rarely give out 9's & 10's.
