Vince,

Lovely capture of three daffodils, which is a great number, odd numbers are always better than even. The angle from bottom left to top right adds nicely to the image and the overall composition is quite good with good depth of field.

The problems start for me when we look at the colours. The image is way too red and even if this was coming from some nice evening sunlight, it doesn't look it on the image. If this were mine I would reduce the red channel in Photoshop definately to get at least the flowers back to yellow. This will reduce the background red as well but I don't think that it is a bad thing.

I've uploaded a mod for you where I have reduced the red channel, cloned out a few distracting stalks in the background. Cropped the image slightly on the right side and then sharpened.

Hope this helps

Thanks for mods, like them both. Can see improvement over original when reds reduced.
