Hello Ena,
The sharpness and details that you captured in this endemic iris flower are great and the composition with the sedges in the FG is very nice. If you could have avoided the distant yellow Flower behind the iris this image would have been even better, but as it is this is pretty good and maybe a first of this species on TN.
Thanks for sharing this,

Hello Ena
Very intersting spieces to shoot,
Perfect details,composition and BG,
Superb shot my friend.

Good Luck

Hello Ena,

Very beautiful picture of this iris. Good composition and light. Excellent sharpness. Wonderful colours.

Hi Ena,
you have captured a beautiful flower with good sharpness and details. Well composed with nice colours.
Well done.

hello Ena,
I think it is an endemic Iris from Bosna-Hersek. Although I am a zoologist, I like very much monocotyledon plants such as Iridaceae, Orcidaceae and their photography. This is very beautiful species. Its shot already great. Sharp focus, nice details, ligting and composition. Splendid coloration. TFS, well done

Hi Ena.
Amazing three-dimensional picture of the beautiful flower. Great POV and brilliant details and sharpness. Lights and colours are great too. At BG I like impressive blue and magenta colours. My compliments and TFS.

Hi Ena,
Beautiful Iris flower. Very nice capture. TFS.

Because of harsh sunlight, some parts of the yellow flower are highly over exposed. I have tried to correct this in a WS, though not very successfully. Please see and comment.

Great color and background in this image. The soft BG focus is just right.

Taking outdoor pictures in bright sunlight is always difficult. Cameras are incapable of capturing the full dynamic range under those conditions. I know, I've taken zillions of pictures with that problem. :)

Under bright sunlight I'd recommend using a polarizer and/or neutral density filter to try to reduce the dynamic range so that you can retain more detail in the bright reflections off the petals.

Hello Ena,
Delicate details and vivid colours!
The plant is well framed, in a natural habitat...
Good light management and a pleasant composition!

Hi Ena,

Excellent capture of this Iris. Lovely colors and very good details.

Just had a look at your theme: very interesting indeed. Hope to contribute more irises later in the season.

Good luck with your diploma thesis!


Hello Ena,

Yes I like it. Nice texture in brilliant yellow. Very well exposed under the light. Good job.


Hi Ena

Here is so cold, and this shot makes me warm.
Good luck with your thesis.
well done


Hello my dear friend Ena!
Whata nice iris with wonderful colors! is it endemic for Bosnia?
Well done friend,

Hi Ena,

The Iris petals look so delicate and almost translucent. I love the low pov and the colours all work so well together. It also reminds me that spring follows winter, and I can't wait for some sunshine!


Delicado Iris Ena, con bonitos colores y luz, aunque esta los "quema" en algunas zonas.
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi

As a student of biology, you have captured this pretty flower very efficiently, Ena.
At shutter speed 800, you have got crisp details and colours on the flower.
I guess there was bright sunshine in May, but you got your camera settings perfectly right here.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Ena,
I like the texture of this beautiful plant. Its petals look almost like kleenex of something :) I think that the WS gave good result as it is for exposure. Thanks,

This is an amazing shot Dear Ena. All the details of the flower are very nicely captured in spite of the hard light. The blurred background is very nice too.

Magnifique, quelle puretÚ, tout en douceur.
