Since I am not taking a summer vacation I though I post a photo from a while ago to have at least the feeling of one.

This close up was taken on my summer vacation in Norway. We had found a wonderful campground along the Lærdalselvi river and it was a pleasure to walk out of the tent and fly fish or just relax along this fast flowing river.

Boa tarde Nieke,
Love it, a great pic here. Nice warm colors, good choice from compositional elements and vertical form. Great sharpness whwre necessary.
Good vacancies. R.

Hello Niek

A beautiful image with lots of color. The details are very sharp and the presentation is very artistic. The main subject pops out perfectly agains the blurred background.

Nicely done


Not an easy shot to make, the f5 really helped here because of the narrow DOF.
The background petals are not far away from subject but still unfocused so there is no confusion between foreground and background flowers... well done

Hello Niek,

It is rare and a treat to see a floral posting from you. The main floral stalk is well off centered, the aperture of f/5.0 produced a sumptuous smooth green b/g yet still provided adequate sharpness to showcase details of the pistils and stamens. I like this. My best regards.


  • Great
