[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Well, his is the last of the irises from Diane's garden.
Will have to wait for some other flower to come out.

PP: cropped, resized, noise reduction, sharpen and framed.

I'm on vacation this week. Have to work on the house. More specifically, on the roof. And this week is going to be a scorcher.

Hello to those of you that are just looking.
And HELLO and THANK YOU VERY MUCH to those of you that take the time to leave critiques/comments/workshops :-).

Hi Pierre,
This is very attractive. I also grow irises in my backyard but not this sumptuous looking variety. The petals look like an old-fashioned petticoat. I look forward to seeing more of Diana's flowers. Greetings, Danilo

Hi Pierre,
Awesome shot Pierre. I like the details and the very close up POV. The framing is excellent.

Hello Pierre
So the heat wave is reaching you as well.. We are in day 4... good luck on the roof.. Hey you may get some photo opts up so high :)

Love the color on this iris! The BG really complements the flower


Bonjour Pierre,

Magnifique Iris commune. Bon POV et un bon cadrage serré qui fonctionne bien. Bonne présentation.

Bonne journée.

Merci de partager,

Josée :)

WOW!! The details in this are amazing Pierre! WOW...I can see every little thing about this flower! Excellent work, the framing is nice, but this would hold it's on without it!

Hello Pierre
Splendid picture, full word and expression. Rich colouring, beauty sharpness. Interesting note. Good workshop. I greet Mark warmly

Bonsoir Pierre,
Superbe présentation!
Tu as très bien su mettre se magnifique iris en valeur avec ton cadrage .
Vraiment magnifique...
Diane a vraiment un jardin superbe.
Passe de bonne vacance!

Bonjour Pierre, je n'ai jamais vu d'iris dores, comme ils sont beau. Quelque part, cela me fait penser a la couleur des lions.
Belle image nette ou l'accent est mis sur la fleur, meme si la profondeur de champ est grande. Car je crois qu'ici la verdure ne derange pas trop. Elle complete tres bien grace a la complementarite des couleurs.
Tres beau jardin.
Et attention aux coups de chaleur sur le toit. On veut te garder en sante :)

Bonne soiree, Yan :)

Lovely colour and detail Pierre. This one works well centrally placed and the framing again is well done. From freezing your posterior off to perspiring madly. Wear a hat, long sleeves and some sunscreen :).

What a lovley detailed capture Pierre. I like your framing and love the gold colours. Perfect DOF on this with the centre detail stunning. Bravo Mon aim.
Warm Regards

Hi Pierre,
Beautiful golden flower with marvellous sharpness and detail.
TFS and have a nice weekend.

Hello Piet
So Piet.. a week off is not bad and like you stated, well spent
Diane has found you some tasks to do ..:-) Is fishing included?

Good to see you have time enough to offer material to let others study.
You have become quite an authority in 'framing'

And modest you add:
*PP: cropped, resized, noise reduction, sharpen and framed.*
The way presented here in this 3D glory is a pleasure to see.

Have a good weekend

Bonsoir Pierre :o)

Epoustouflant cet iris ! Bravo à Diane pour l'amour qu'elle porte à son jardin et au photographe pour avoir su le mettre en valeur. Les couleurs sont splendides et le cadre .... parfait !

Hello Pierre!
Perfect sharpness!
Wonderful colours!
Lovely frame!
Excellent done!
Best regards!

This is simply stunning, Pierre!
I love the textures and the exploded frame is the perfect touch -- gives it an even MORE 3-D effect

Hello Pierre,

Good luck with the work on the roof.
Wonderful 3-D effect with this framing.Its wild!
Textures and colour of the iris are grand.
Does Diana have peonies in her garden? They should be out soon.
Take care, joni

Merci Pierre pour cette photo d'iris. Un "broken color", comme disent les anglophones. Plutôt réussi ! Connais tu la variété ? Il fût un temps où les hybrideurs jetaient ces iris au compost, les classant parmi les monstres. Heureusement pour celui-ci, les temps changent, et ils sont plutôt à la mode ces dernières années.
Je mets la photo dans mon thème, merci encore !

What a stunning beauty Pierre! I really love this!
The iris is sharp as a razor and I really like the frame!
I think Diane deserves a great compliment for her garden and you deserve one for showing the most beautiful species to us in the best possible way.

Thank you!!!
