I haven't been posting for awhile, I think I've gotten into a 'rut'. I'm not sure what kind of flowers these are.

Hello Karen! Nice flowers, nice light and bright, good contrast and sharp. Original shot. Good luck!

Hi Karen,

lovely dof and colors here. good sharpness and details.
a good pov with good use of exposure.
nicely composed and presented.


This sure is a nice one, Karen,
the color is awesome. Great job with the lighting and the detail is outstanding. Excellent choice with the shallow DOF and the flowers stand out beautifully from the BG. I know about those ruts, too. Been in one for quite a while. It'll pass. Really great shot! Many thanks and warmest wishes,

Hi Karen.

Superb razor thin depth and fine details.

Hi Karen

Missed this one. Fantastic use of a shallow dof, with good sharpness on the yellow flowers. Excellent repetition, & they stand out well against the o.o.f. green bg. Tfs!

Hello Karen,

Nice to have you back again!
Is your back recovered?

This is such a cheerful shot!
The bright yellow of the flower jumps off the screen,
Good use of shallow dof and nicely composed off-centre.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hello Karen, nice to see you back.
The flowers are quite 3 dimensional and are popping out of the screen.
Good off centre composition and shallow DoF.
The sharpness is spot-on.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Karen
I think these are Bachelor Buttons but I'm no expert. Good DOF to keep the flowers sharp and the BG blurred.

Buenas noches Karen. Felicidades por esta hermosa composición. Por su color resaltado por el desenfoque del fondo.
