[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Two yellow roses taken after a refreshing shower. Took this picture during my New Zealand trip in Te Anau on the south Island.

Not mush PP work here; cropped and adjusted highlights and shadows. Re-sized and sharpened.

There are not much words needed to show and experience beauty.

Hi Hans,
Amanzing duo roses macro.The water drops,light,sharpnes and presentation is wonderful.
Very good shot with a good organization. The color and the suspension seem only right.

Great one Hans! The shot really shows how delicate the rose petals are ... lovely colors and details with the rain drops. The flower buds look like you might have strategically placed them there (I see aphids on the bud, bottom right!!! Nasty things!! They love roses. I used to get paid to notice things like that, so it's just second nature now!)
Nice job.

hi hans.
not more flowers??????????

is this for a yellow rose in texas or is it you and me?

great colours and detail. the rain drops look as though they could fall off and land on my desk.

very nicely handled.

This seems a TAD too sharp for me Hansie! Roses are romantic, so a soft focus usually works better. Everything else is marvelous, is this Janice and Dawnie? Yellow Rosa of Texas?

Great capture with nice exposure
Drops add a nice interest

Hi Hans,
A fine closeup of these gorgeous yellow roses. I really like the water droplets on the petals. Very nice work and TFS. Gerald

Very sharp Hans, that's how i like flowers ! A peculiar tint of yellow , the drops add to the mood in a pleasant way ,there's nothing better than a refreshing rain to revive colors and bring life to gentle flowers like these,
fine looking shot , tfs,

Double beauty. Excellent lighting, sharpness, colors, shapes, but what captives me more are those perfect crystal clear water drops on them. I wish I could give one of those to my TWIN sister. TFS

Beautiful macro of the twin roses. I appreciate the fact that you did very little PP work. Nature is best seen in its raw beauty.

What a pretty rose display Hansie.
And look at that good NZ rain too.
Well captured, nice and sharp, the focus is spot on, and the colours are so pretty too
Kia ora

Hi Hans,
Amazing shot, this really seems perfect. The colours are very striking, but what really makes the shot are the water droplets. Flowers always seem more appealing when they're wet, as demonstrated in this photo. Nice work.


Steeds al ik denk nee he alweer blommen en klik aan dan ben ik verbaasd,dit is mooi scherp vooral de druppels vind ik mooi.

Er zijn een aantal mensen erg vervelend aan het doen op dit moment en waarom??? in het belang and TL ???
Ik denk dat ze hun energie beter kunnen gebruiken voor hun fotoos want dat kan nog wel wat beter denk ik,er zit zelfs iemand bij die helemaal geen fotoos heeft en die alleen maar zeurt en ouwehoert over anderen,dat snap ik niet zo Hans...
Jammer,want het gaat op deze manier allang niet meer om de fotoos maar om persoonlijke vetes tussen kleine verwende jongetjes(met hoge baantjes in het verre oosten en blijkbaar tijd zat....).
Misschien wordt het is tijd voor wat anders voor me.
