[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After posting my Peony (previous posting) someone dared to say that it would be better to use a different background.
Of course I knew that, but it is a lot of work to create a nice background.

But I couldn't stop myself, and got it anyway. ;-)

Well, is this a better background ?

I do like the BG in this floral shot too, Joop :)

Good focus on the lovely flowers with amazing sharpness and clarity.
The colors of the flowers are natural and DOF is excellent, making them just 3-D.
Well caught light and exposure on the subject.

Thanks for sharing.


Ciao Joop, lovely couple of beautiful flowers on a fantastic lighting BG, fine details, wonderful natural colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Joop,
Superb light in this shot with excellent DoF blurring out the background with that lovely pastel colour. The peony's are pin sharp. Fantastic shot and one to be proud of. Best wishes

Hello Joop :)

These peonies with yellow faint light in their centre, they look beautifully.
Splendid colours and enchanted light and very showy background.
The very spectacular composition which looks as the painted painting.
The splendid realization, I like

With best wishes very much.

Hi Joop,
Besides the fantastic light on these white Peonies, they are adorned by an attractive BG.
The light behind is creating a 3D effect on the flowers, they are sort of stuck to my monitor.
A very attractive effect!
Well done for this neat work. Good PP work.

trčs joli fond de couleur; le pastel et le dégradé de lumičre !

Hi Joop,
Not only the background is good here, I'm embraced by your fantastic light management. Excellent playing with lights and shadows, the overall effect is simply fantastic! I give the pic a little green star, although I find the crop on the bottom just a little too tight.
Best regards, László
