Simply superb! The vignetting draws complete attention to the marvelous composition and color and the flowers in the background look almost like mirror reflections!

is it really spring?

Diane Schuller from Hythe, Canada

I love seeing these images of spring even though we're quite a way from it yet. The vignetting is ideal for keeping our focus on that spritely daff and not on the background. Speaking of background, I love the trio of daffodil heads in shallow dof -- they're like a great supporting cast!

I am just going to say the same thing I said to Jack because I am getting same feeling from both yours and his shots. 'Beautiful flowers and that blur is really making them stand out.'
