Pretty simple shot overall. Well I stole one of the daisies from my wifes centerpiece, stuck it on the end of a coat hanger that was bent all funny which covered in electric tape to make it black, and shot it in front of a black t-shirt. This was my first idea after the challenge came up and I am really happy with the shot. Its lit by a household lamp being pointed at it which looked kinda funny before the processing to fix the colors.

Processing: Shot in jpeg, remove color cast, levels, hue/saturation, contrast, cropped, resized, added a border and saved.

Very good focus and very simple. Not much creativity or originality but hey- we're centered and focused- what more could you ask for. Nice photo.

Beautiful, classic shot. Too bad it was a basic; I'd like the yellow a little brighter.

Very nice picture, and selection of backgroud enhances the flower. I can't stop looking at it. I wished the picture had a shorter name though. 9

Good photo for the challenge. The yellow brings to life an otherwise black & white image.
