Lovely bright crisp shot. Methinks I should look into getting an ultra-wide lens of some kind...

I usually do not like flower shots. This one is great! I love the use of extreme wide angle on this shot. Great sharpness and detail on the flowers. Which lens did you use? 8

I am dying to know how you got those flowers to show the white so well. Mine always come out with a yellow tinge. That is an amazing use of focus and color. Thanks for submitting it.

Nice use of DOF to bring out the three subjects. Color and exposure are very good. I would have pulled a couple of weeds on either side...

Love the wide "in your face" composition. Reasonable balance between foreground and background. I think it would be more effective with a more Velvia saturation. 8

Beautiful shot, the light looks very bright but has not spoilt the shot, well done.

Beautiful colors, and lovely sharpness to this shot. This would be one of the better daisy shots in this challenge, I think.

Bright, clear cheery--everything a photo of daisies should be! I like the use of the wide angle lens here. 9

By far my fav in the challenge. I just like the look of it, even though I think that the white is overwhelming in a few places and people will say that the lens distortion is annoying, but I think it adds to the shot. Great!

I really like the wide angle view of this. It really makes the daisies pop. Good job!

daisies rock. great choice, beautiful capture. perfect focus.

Although excellent in its current composition, I think it would have been better with the sky as the background/neg space vs trees and other daisies.

Just when I thought I had seen all the beautiful flowers that could be done -- this one. One of my two top picks. The lighting and composition couldn't be better.
