These wild daisies caught in contre-jour! They are very common in Malta during this time. I find them interesting, all our fields are yellow and green with some wild poppies scattered among them.
Against the sun these yellow flowers sparkle and some some color correction in PP and increasing constrast, while darkening I obtained this result!
I framed using Picasa 3 Software.

Hi Nicolas.
Wonderful POV and beautiful use of the back lighting where you beautiful illuminated the wild daises,the flaming petals of the yellow tone looks awesome.just a classic light presentation mixed with darker tones Francis.
My Best Wishes

Beautiful backlighting! Great use of the dof with clear sharp details. Very nice colors. Well done, tfs.

Beautiful shot Francis! The lighting makes the petals almost transparent. Such beautiful color, contrast and detail. Perfect presentation. TFS, Lori

A very beautiful picture. I like to have more expressiveness, a good choice and also POV brightness, color and ... inspiration ... A picture worth a maximum of punncte, but my overall assessment.
Best regards

dear Francis Xavier,
this back light shows us another shining orange color of daisy against dark space here,
the transparent orange color is quite different from reflected orange color, and it makes me feel polite but passionate ambience hidden back from superficial colors,
and this composition shows us dynamic figure of still plant indeed too,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Hi, Francis. Wow. This is contrast put to the limit and I think the luminosity is intense with the backlighting. Lovely dramatic composition well presented with a beautiful frame.

HI Francis..you do a beautiful job with the colors and details...excllent work.


Nice pic Francis - good light and colour whilst you've isolated the BG well - both with DOF and keeping it dark so the subject stands out well.
Not so sure about the gradient frame LOL...


Hi Francis, The cahnges you have made have really brought out the petals on these daisies.Dark bg really makes them stand out. Maybe if the frame was just a little narrower. Fiona
