Brilliant composition I like the half in half out adds a lot of interest to what’s out of frame

It is daring. As one judge said to a friend: "Flowers have distinct smell and colour, your picture lacks both". Although I disagree with him I get his point. I still use black and white film and I have shot a fruit in my last undeveloped, unfinished roll.

I can distinguish the "half out" flower. I can't realise which the "half in" is. The cropped flower on the right is too close to the main flower. You are already in your lense's widest aperture and too close to make the first two flowers look seperate.
Cropping one of the two to minimise that fact does not cut it for me. I would move the camera to the right side and show the fall off of these 3 flowers...

You have done well to give the daisy image some interest !
I have photographed a lot daisy's recently and it is difficult to get a composition that works well to capture the viewers interest.

It is good to get advice from other members here - I learn a lot from critiques.
I like your use of mono with the daisies - the dark stems add tonal value.
I expect you know you can use all the colours in saturation in Photoshop to
alter the tones.
