Dear All,

I didn't happen to capture flowers in recent times and this one I took few weeks ago. It was a beautiful sunny day and the autumn light was spreading its beauty all over, especially on this pair of yellow flowers.

I wanted to capture the tenderness of their petals against a darker BG, and even one of the flower showing its lovely heart was indeed a pleasure to look at.

Hope you enjoy the mood in this floral post.

Best regards,

Curious, Paras, like you and Francis seem to have combined the theme of today: a worship spring. Use even a similar POV.
However photos are are so different in style and quirks.
Francis produces an ode, while you give us a sonata.

Ciao Paras, lovely couple of beautiful flowers, fantastic brigh colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Paras.

The sun plays huge part in the attraction of these two flowers, such vivid colours on show. We see many flowers here on TL...but then we need many smiles to get htrough the day sometimes. I like the angle of these two. tfs

Hi Paras,
A nice low POV to capture these bright yellow flowers. Perfect light management to produce such a dark BG to boost the flowers forth! Good choice of shallow DOF. Sharpness is there and the composition is O.K.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Paras

Hello Paras :)

These gold flowers look in the pretty light fantastically,
and the black background underlines their beauty magnificently.
The very showy composition showed magnificently and executed.

With best wishes.

Olá Paras
Good focus, intense colors and a sweet simplicity in the composition...flowers and you
