The white flowers were a little blown out in the second image, so I used a bit of trickery as well as a bit of negative exposure compensation to give them some texture.   Boosting the shadows ruined the effect of my other corrections so I decided to post as is.

Very nice!

At first I didn't even noticed the butterfly not having the sharpest focus.
But given the focus being on the daisies, you can call it
"Daisies' Monarchy".

I like the composition of the first one much more than that of the 2nd one. Besides, the shadow potions of second one (including the butterfly itself) look a bit dark on my monitor.
I wonder if a "fill-in" (boosting shadows) would help it shining more.

Sadly my focus was on the Daisies...

Still, while looking for something else, I stumbled upon these shots taken in the dark digital ages of stone knives and bearskins when the *ist-D and
Ds ruled the PDML with bloody tooth and claw.

Equipment: Pentax *ist-Ds w/vmc Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm f2.8~4.0.

As usual comments are welcome but may be totally ignored.
