Yellow daisy back-lit against blue vase. I love these colors together, so decided to enter it. Won't do well, I expect because it's a flower...I had fun anyway.

Pretty blue on yellow combination. Very traditional framing adds a very nice movement to the capture.

Wonderful yellows and blues. Way better than my 198th finish! I would love to see the background on the right side changed to the same blue as the left.

Very Pretty! The blue background that fades to a light blue on the right edge is incredible, and wonderful detail in the yellow daisy! Nice work!

Just look at the shape and the contrast of colour. There is an "in your face" type of statement. I especially like the offset if the pic. It's not centered yet it's centering it all. Everything works here.

Contrast of the yellow flower to the blue sky is good, but I think the focus should be at the centre of the flower.

I love the colors here, just wish there was a bit more light on the flower's center to make that POP! I think it would be stronger if you continued the blue all the way to the back right corner behind the flower..up & down.
good work
