Sometimes flowers turn out to be much prettier than you previously expected.

Bought this bunch of flowers (Peony) a few days ago. Today they started screaming for attention, which I gave ...

Hi Joop

Wonderful tight framing & the white frilly flower resembles a ballerina's tutu. Good dof and excellent sharpness & lighting. Nice graphism against the dark bg. Tfs!

Hi Joop,
Splendid white tones produced by this HDR treatment. Nice play with light and shadows. A very sharp close-up of this Peony flower from such a pleasant POV.
Very neat work.

Hello Joop,
a beautiful Peony with beautiful colors you've shown here, and the beautiful natural frame makes the fantastic image to which the title fits very well. Beautiful perspective, contrast, and liht details.

Hello Joop :)

He looks fabulously this peony, how wedding dress arranged in the wheel.
Her whiteness in the miraculous light delights.
You got the fantastic effect this realization, I congratulate!

With best wishes.

HiJoop, a great macro capture of this elegant white Peonie - so sharp that you can see the tint of purple in her heart. The BG is very pleasant and I like the tight framing.
Very well done - thanks for sharing - Monika

But not loud enough! It is beautiful though. I like the lighting and nice framing. Good dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

> The fragile quality of the flower comes so well through...!
Delicate details in the petals, fine level point of view and
first class colour reproduction...
Effective DoF and a fine 3D feeling...!



A delightful flower well captured. I like its tissue paper appearance and the colour and calrity are excellent.

The lovely flower was "screaming for attention", therefore, I stopped to write some words on its charming beauty, dear Joop ;)

Great details and well shown clarity with well kept DOF and from a nicely thought POV.
The sharpness and colors are well done, and contrast against a darker BG is awesome.
Well spotted!

The white is pretty nice, with nice details. For b/g I think i prefer a rather warmer than bluish :D. But that's personal :)

Hi Joop
pretty white flower. fine management of light on the delicate petals. nice softness of the texture. splendid focus, very clear image. the ark BG enhances the flower.

Hi Joop..nice shot. Excellent light and tones. Good work.
