It it it in Japan was has washed oneself was was in gathered from chrysanthemum's flowers dew, believing also, that this health will assure and longevity.



W stanie dzikim wystepuje w Chinach, Japonii, Korei i Mongolii.
W Polsce rosnie jedynie chryzantema Zawadzkiego.

Pierwsza, pisemna wzmianke o chryzantemie znaleziono w pismach Konfucjusza.

Zlocista chryzantema o szesnastu platkach jest herbem cesarzy Japonii.
W Japonii tez obmywano sie w rosie zebranej z kwiatow chryzantemy, wierzac, ze zapewni to zdrowie i dlugowiecznosc.

The lighting is the winning factor here, Barbara.
Beautiful subdued lighting on the delicate petals, and the dark background really brings out the details of the flower.

I find the petals to the bottom of the shot slighlty distracting, but easily removable. There's also a little noise in the shot, again easily removable.
I've done a workshop as a comparison.
Hope it works for you.

A beautifully composed image though, Barbara, and you've produced a great result.


Hello Barbara.
What a lovely lighting condition for this romantic flower with beautiful details and soft colors.
My Best Regards.

Hallo Barbara,
Bardzo delikatna kolorystyka jak i caly kwiatek,bardzo ladnie pokazany na tym ciemnym tle.Bardzo interesujace swiatlo.Podoba sie.Pozdrawiam Siegfried

Beautiful lighting! Very good framing and great use of the dof to isolate the flower. I love the soft colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello dear Barbara!
Yes that is really romantic and you know is my favorite color. Nice contrast against the dark BG. Well placed in frame but a little OOF at the front side which is distracting the eyes from the beautiful and focused heart of the flower.
Nicely manged light.

TFS, indeed a beautiful shot!

Best regards,

Hi Barbara,
Splendid lighting on this flower. Nice play with shadows and superb tones!
I like the composition with the flower sitting pretty down at the right corner.
Nice dark ambient around which boosts the flower to its beauty!
Well done for this artistic PP work.
My regards,

Francis Xavier
