Dear All,

A simple floral shot from three flowers of different age growing together in a harmony.

I took this shot inside the room, a source of bit low natural light, therefore I have gone for higher ISO ratings.

Hope you enjoy the mood in this picture.

Best greetings,



ISO=640, Focal length=105 mm, cropped and resized for TL.

I really love the subtle color blending with the BG. The angular shape of the petals and heart of the blossom are captured very sharp and detailed in your image. Diffused lighting makes this a joyous composition.
Very Well Done


First of all let me tell you that this is one of the best pictures you've posted here. Perfect rhythm and harmony. very delicate and excellent composition, lighting and sharpness.
My warm greetings, Paras.

Wow! Looks like the flower is exploding! Awesome composition and good use of the dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Paras,
A beautiful floral shot Paras with a nice tone of colors and light,
A sharp and clear picture with and excellent focus,
Very well taken and done.

Bonjour Paras,

I had to react to this photo as this flower, Astrantia, is one of my favourites... His name here in Holland is also called "Zeeuws Knoopje" because it looks like a jewel of this province where I live and that is wear on typical folkloristic clothes in Zeeland. Have a look here

Your photo is well achieved - also a perfect item for the "Bookeh Theme" - but I would have liked a less tight framing though...

Hi Paras,

The flowers are well placed in the frame. the point of view is showing the details and colors of the flowers. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Paras,
Wonderful and so very special beauty presented here...softness and delicacy are the main characteristics of this marvellous composition!
