King Alfred Daffodils[edit]

King Alfred Daffodils, Floriade, Canberra, 2005

As one of the iconic flower types I think we could do with a daffodil FP. This lovely display of daffodils was captured at Floriade, Canberra, last year.

I think it is particularly encyclopaedic with the central flower front on, but also in good focus the one on the right displaying a side view, and the one on the left showing the rear of the flower. Leaves are also clearly displayed. It appears as the lead picture in Narcissus (flower).

  • Support Nice piccy. --Billpg 12:50, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose over exposed, the yellow petals shouldn't be white. chowells 14:42, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose as with lots of pics nominated here - good for the article, not quite good enough for FP. Diliff | (Talk) (Contribs) 15:53, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose Nice, but I take issue with the framing. A flower photo should either be of a single (maybe like 2-3) flower to display that singular flower fully, or if you're doing a group shot like this should be wider with a broader depth of field. This is sort of stuck oddly between the two. Staxringold talkcontribs 17:54, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose - really don't like the composition. One flower dead on to the camera, the back of one, and just the front of another? It's awkward, and the balance of a tiny bit of scenery at the top with quite a lot of fairly dull stalkage at the bottom isn't terribly attractive either. Stevage 11:24, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose - it's a pretty awful composition, with blown highlights, and a small digicam look. --Marumari 18:13, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
