Realized that I hadn’t shared any of the “regular” daffodils yet, and while they’ve been with us for over a month, they’re finishing up their run at present.

    James, the first pic has got an incredible bokeh. Amazing. The 50mm prime is the best lens IMHO. Cheap and provides great features. extraordinary.

  2. Love the yellow on blue in the last photo.

    What a great Pic

  4. Thanks, all. I led with my favorite photo, and Benjamin, I have to agree. Dollar for dollar, there is not a finer lens available. I use it for more than half my shots these days.

  5. Beautiful photos James. Honestly, I think you could have captured the daffodils better what with the micro lens. However, you are dfoing a wonderful job at clicking micro objects. NicE!

    Hhm, the first pictures are not so good. But the last one is really great. I think that this quite normal that not every picture can be the best shot. Really nice work! Great!

  7. I actually love the first photo, I think it’s a great angle. And the yellow/blue combination does look good, as in the last one. I love the daffodils when they come up, but they last such a short time is really is a shame.

  8. Love the first picture and the last picture but I think the third one is my favourite. Something about seeing a beautiful but totally imperfect daffodil looks more real than the others. With the edges of the petals browning and a little torn, there’s symbolism in there somewhere. Great pics, I’m not a huge fan of looking after flowers but they photograph so beautifully sometimes.

    I love the last photograph because of the contrast between the yellow dafodil and the purple background 🙂

  10. The first one has a really cool bokeh effect on the picture. You could bumb up the exposure a little especially on the third picture to make it more lively.

    • I think the third one needs more yellow in it.

      I didn’t know as much about post-processing when I took these. If I reshot these, they would definitely have a little more pop to them.
