[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Two weeks ago our granddaughter graduated from high school, so I traveled down south to celebrate with the family. It was almost 100 degrees in Louisville, Kentucky, but I wandered out in the back yard with my camera (for only a few minutes). I only took a couple of pictures, and this is one of them.

Over the last few years my brown thumb has gotten a little greener, and our back yard is getting quite colorful. But this is one plant that I have not had success with. They bloom beautifully, and I have to keep them from climbing up on the roof. But they do not come back the next year. Suggestions?

Nice macro shot Carol Lynn. I love the color and the sharp detail at its heart. So pretty and well done with a good dof. Congratulations to your granddaughter. Wish I could help about the plants but I don't have much success either. The weather this year didn't help. My plants either froze or drowned. TFS, Lori

I love the way the flower is filling up the whole frame while spreading its arm-like petals, Carol!

A great flower with nice details and colors.
The sharpness and POV are excellent, and light is quite nicely handled.
The green BG provides well suited contrast to this beauty.
Well caught!

Best regards,

  • Great

Hi Carol,
A nice heart of this propeller-like purple flower in such a geometrical composition.
Beautiful subtle lighting caressing its tall petals with perfect details at the heart of the flower. Nice contrast with the green.
Good work.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Ciao Carol

A pretty flower with some amazing details!
The close-up is skillfully done with good texture
in the petals, the colours are vivid and well reproduced...
Good contrast in the purple and green.:!
