5 years TL: Cheers!

Five years TL, well friends I have to apologize, I wasn't very active last weeks, but I have to celebrate a party. TL has become part of my life and due this fine site with all her imperfections, I learned a lot about photography. Also I met and made new friends all over the globe. Thanks to TL and my (new) friends I really enjoy my hobby of photography.

Hopefully we all keep TL alive and kicking.

Cheers TL! And thank you very much for the fun. Three hurray's for Adam who all started this!

Are you calling us imperfections Hansie???
Just teasing you...
Yes, Adam does need a lot of thanks from us - if it wasn't for him we would never have met each other, or learnt to take photos...
Beautiful rose Hans, and especially after that heavy shower of rain.
I love the colours and your close crop too,
Well done my friend

Hi Hans,
very very clear, sharp with excellent detail.
Very high photographic quality.
It looks really good. Well done.

Best regards, Daniel

Hi Hansie... never truer words in your note here my friend...

I do love this rose, how it goes from white to a soft lemon colour. Nice tight crop and love the water drops.

Happy Birthday Treklens..

Best wishes to you dear Hansie, I hope your well.
Yr Kiwi buddy Dawn.

Bom dia Neighbor,
A sophisticated and nice contribution to Friday's Theme dedicated to TL, our house.
You are GreenBaron!
Thanks, many thanks to post a Rose!

Mooie macro opname heb je hier Hans. De tere rozenblaadjes die je haast kunt aanraken. Jammer dat ik nog geen "reukscherm" heb want deze ruikt vast heel lekker.

groetjes, willemien

Hi Hans,
Amazing shot, crystal clear with a perfect POV. The beads of water are such a bonus, very impressive photo.

Hi Hans

Effective tight framing on the pale white / yellow rose, with marvellous repetition of the water droplets, & good dof & sharpness. Tfs!

Hi Hans, excellent sharp, clear rose. Fantastic details in the little droplets.
I haven't yet met any TL members in person (except those in my family:) but have made some good friends, and have become aquainted with many more. Hope to continue on the same path.
Have a nice weekend.

I assume,it's a wonderful dedication to celebrate this event.
Yes, Adam has done a nice thing.

HI Hans
Such sharpness, I never realized till I saw this post how much veining there is in a rose, even the water drops show texture.
Excellent macro of the rose and a great one for the theme.

Hi Hans,
I wasn't very active on TL last week, me too! So, I missed your last posts.
This birthday card is really beautifully done! I like the mix with softness of the colors and the sharpness on the droplets.
I agree with you about the chance we have with TL in our life! Bravo! Annie

Yours is WAY better than mine Hansie! much closer crop, excellent sharpness, no distortion on the edges! You copied me, I'm reporting you to the authorities! LOL!

Hoi Hans.
Raindropps are falling...
Mooie foto to tribute TL.
Funny thing, "Adam", is also the name of the guy behind, 'Ephotozine'. no doubt he is the same person.!
Groeten van Jan

Prachtige roos! Op nog vele-jaren-prachtige-foto's-maken-en-bekijken :-)

Nothing more to add, just nice. Congrats hans !


Hi Hans,

I am not active at TL . . I missed lots of your beautiful images . .
I observed your exposure setup is excellent on this shot . . smallest aperture to get most of the rose in focus . .
Those drops show freshness of the flower . .
Beautiful presentation . .
Thank you for sharing with us during 5 years with TL . .


Hi Hans,
Beautiful and delicate colors and texture!
Marvellous sharpness.
