Two more gerber daisies



Thanks for everyone's comments yesterday - I really appreciate them. Most people commented that they thought the black was too overpowering in the photo. Here are a couple of other shots from the same day - I actualy did shoot the red flower against my white foam board reflector - but my WB was all wrong, (I'm too chicken to shoot in RAW). The white background was a really ugly gray. I played with it a little in PSE4, and used my paint bucket tool to turn the gray to white. Is there a better way to do this? The second picture was a lighter color flower against the black velvet again. My highlights were kind of blown out, so I adjusted them, but I'm not sure it was enough.
Both photos were shot in AV mode f8.0, 400 ISO, 50mm lens. CC please! Any comments or suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!

I like this one on the black. I think because it has more dimension. Great capture.

I think the one with the white background looks great. It looks like a picture you see on journals in the store. Love the red border with it.

I love the pink against the black. In the first one, I think a different red border or a black border would make the picture relaly stand out. Right now, the reds are competing. But I absoltuely LOVE the red flower againt the white :)

I love the pink on the black it is great. And well I am not a huge fan of the red on the white something doesn't quite fit well. Love the second one.
