Some play with filters on this Nature shot. I made use of the backlighting filter, soft vignette, bloom filter and margin maker (Photoscape)

Hi Francis.

I like the soft and defused look at this one, the saturated tones and low angle work for me, the darker tones too add much to the way I take in different floral shots. I like also the subtle frame used to enhance the depths. tfs

Hello Francis,
This is a beautiful example of selective focus in shallow dof resulting in a wonderfully pleasant image. Very good POV and just a pleasure to look at. Well done, my friend.

Hi Francis, I justlove it - it is soo soft and the blur adds soo much appeal to it. - I like that there are all stages of the flower - very pleasant.
Kindest regards Monika

Little by little, I see less Malta landscapes from you and more pictures of a different type, and I think that this change is successful, as the pictures you submit are nice ones, this one particularily nicely composed with soft but lively colors.

Très très subtile le contraste entre la fleur fermée et la fleur ouverte, quelle macro sueprbe cpatage et ocmpo fantastique vue.

bravo et amitié


A work plan with many "daisies".
In the foreground, the three stages: bud, semi-open, mature beauty.
Photographic work in parallel planes.
Fades and depth of field, creating "the environment"
Thank you for sharing.

Hi Francis,

Now that is a very attractive flower shot. I like the dreamy, out of focus, soft look.

Hi Francis:
I like the soft touch to this presentation...

Beautiful! I like the soft lighting and soft focus. Great pov and it has good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Very artistic Francis Xavier,I'm not sure of your interpretation,as you did not mention what your intentions were
for this composition,but I see it, as a beginning and an end with the new bud in the foreground awaiting its turn to bloom then the progression of this flowers full blooming & then the fading & ending of the bloom in the background.Regardless of how I see it,I do like the progression of the DOF.Well taken IMHO.

A romantic shot, beautiful daisy and nice soft tones of the blurred BG, well composed

More than the flowers in focus I did like the amazing bokeh in this floral posting, Francis!

Great colors and nice contrasts are existing within this pleasing scene.
The colors are natural and DOF is well shown.
Nice work!

Kind regards,

Hi Francis,
Nice perpective and focus in a shallow DOF.
Excellent details and sharp composition,
Beautiful bokeh and colors tone.

Bonsoir Francis Xavier,

Magnificence et douceur , à la fois lumineuse et sensuelle, la capture de ces fleurs montre l'interprétation de l'épanouissement de ces blanches Daisies dans la brume improvisée .
Poétique regard sur la sensibilité de la nature vue avec votre talent de photographe.
Merci pour ce joli partage. Très bien réalisé.
Mes compliments.
