Was heading out the Columbia River Gorge as a tourist (lived there for years, was just visiting), and came across a small field with wild daisies.

Looking for some feedback on all aspects of this; general appeal, comp, technicals, and post processing. I like it, but can't decide if I love it. :)

it could be sharper, but I think the wind was the culprit...

Thanks!

If steroids are illegal for athletes, should PS be illegal for models?

It is an awesome image except for the one thing you mentioned, the ladybug and flower are not sharp. This would have been a grandslam if you would have gotten it. Greta colors, composition, wxposure, etc.

If it is windy, bump up the speed and ISO

Thanks you very much! I'm going to print it 13x16 and see if it's usable. It's not that it was so windy, but I think it moved from the wind from the time I focused to when I hit the shutter, as my ss was 1/1000th. :(

Color, lighting and composition are all great. I just think the bokeh is a bit harsh, could be smoother, but that requires the use of a different lens.

Lady bug gives it interest. Do wish it was sharp as well. But nice composition.
