Re: Wildflowers

I like the low position from which you took the shot. I'm a bit torn by the composition's elements, specifically whether to include the weightly element of the tree trunk on the right and the presence of partially cropped flower blooms on the bottom...although the latter does provide an interesting secondary level. I played with it, testing my own thoughts on possible alternatives, one of which is attached here. Not necessarily better...but an alternative.

Re: Wildflowers

I think the shot would have had greater impact without the background being as readily identifiable...either by shooting with a narrower depth of field to get greater blur of the background or using a reflector or other object to mute the background. I do like the angle you shot from and perhaps a slightly different position might have eliminated the background as well. I like the inclusion of the daisies but you likely would have lost that with a narrower dof. Of course, there's always ways to alter the bg using image software, as well. After all that rambling, I'm basically saying that I like the shot but not the tree in the background
