Another flower from Diane's garden.
Better get used to this. Many more to come.

Iris is a genus of between 200-300 species of flowering plants with showy flowers which takes its name from the Greek word for a rainbow, referring to the wide variety of flower colors found among the many species. As well as being the scientific name, Iris is also very widely used as a common name and refers to all Iris species as well as some closely related genera. Source: Wikipedia

PP: Resized, sharpened.
Used the ellipse selection tool to create the vignette from a layer of the image.
Used another layer over the vignette to create the over the frame effect.

Bonsoir Pierre,
Quelle belle présentation pour ces Iris aux lumineuses couleurs!
La précision est parfaite et donne beaucoup de relief à la photo.



Hi, Pierre
I like the freshness of the flowers and since they are warm colors they semm to come out. The vignetting is also helping the central composition. Good work.

fantastic details in the water drops -- crystal clear and almost 3-D

The detail here is AMAZING Pierre!! I can see EVERY drop, sharp as a tack! Really excellent work on this one! Spring has Sprung!

Hello Pierre,
Yellow Iris.
Beautiful droplest on the flowers.
Sharp and well presented. TFS

Hi Pierre,
That's a whole lot of droplets on those lovely flowers!
Very good sharpness and beautiful colors.

Bonjour Pierre,
Je crois que tu as eu le même temps que chez nous en France, de la pluie, par chance tu as pu nous offrir un joli bouquet d'iris certes mouillées mais très jolies, Bravo
Amicalement Odile
