Hi Karen,
Perfect lighting on these fabulous flowers and a nice thought to brighten the day.
Nice shades and shadows are making this shot a piece of art!
A very good composition - the two flowers are placed well in the presentation and balanced by the dried blurred flower on the left.
A complementing BG to emerge more the main subject.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

merveilleus fleur, ce beau jaune avec ce solei qui les éclairent à merveille, fantastique macro, nette bien cadrée et présentée.

Bravo et amitié


Excellent shot!
Perfect sharpness, lovely colours and niocely blurred background!

Hi Karen
Nicely captured. The flowers are well positioned in the image and considering they are in full sun there are no blown out hot spots.

Hi Karen,
I joined TL mainly to post flower pics. And it is such a treat to view a well composed and exposed floral image. I do like the off-centered compo, and the b/g. This is a beauty. Well done.

Hello Karen,

From my pov, you have got this just right!!
The flowers are perfectly focussed against an oof b/g.
A good colour interest is created by how the focal flower is casting a shadow on the subsidiary one.
Excellent positioning of the flowers, off-centre, in the frame.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hi Karen, it sure does brighten my day, we have had high winds, rain and fog lately, and not necessarily in that order.
We should be seeing the spring flowers in another six weeks or so.
These blooms rally pop off the screen with that lovely lighting, well done.

Hi Karen,

pretty shot, a refreshing one.
nice colors and also the POV.
sharpness is very good.
thanks for sharing.
