Hello Christian, how are you MF?
It has been a long time since we last met around, and it is a pleasure to enjoy again your beautiful shots. The DOF here really makes a beautiful presentation, turning a simple flower into an artistic photo. Great exposure and details too.
I will have to check your web site for new fungi, as you don't post any in TN lately, and I miss them! :)
Best regards, Felipe.

Beautiful shot with excellent detail and colour Christian.
Soon it will be summer for us and the Gentians will be flowering here ... and soon it will be autumn for you and there will be lots of fungi.

Qu'elle belle capture de cette fleur dont je connaissais le nom mais que je n'avais jamais vue je crois. J'aime beaucoup les détails, ces couleurs délicates et la belle profondeur de champs. La composition aussi est très réussie avec un petit visiteur en bonus :) Merci!

A magnifcent picture!
It's so lovely your POV and the inclination of the flowers, I like so much the way it goes through the center on the image.
The subtle tones makes it so delicate flower, that stands out so well from the nicely blurred background.
Felicitacions et merci du partager.

I rarely make a critiques and comments on plant photography. Plants are very dificult objects and I think that it is not so easy to take a good plant photo (and avoid an effect of ordinariness)
Your photo is very good, perfectly sharp, with great contrast and perfect OOF homogenous buckground. Fly as a bonus :-)
You have begun to share pictures so seldom but every shot is superb.
Amazing flowers and attractive addition – the fly. Diagonal structure of the shot is looked greatly as well as the tiny details and wonderful delicate colours. DOF is selected very well to. BG is finely smoothed and main subject is in focus at all. Bravo and TFS. I wish you (and our self) more pictures and posts.

Lovely soft light and colors here.
Just the right amount of sharpness and DOF, great details. Excellent POV and BG, I see that fly has added his two cents also :)
Very well done!

Très belle et fine présentation de la Gentiana campestris. Très belles les couleurs: le mauve et le vert sont magnifiques. Je vois que sur tes gentianes s'est aussi posée une mouche!
Cette fleur m'est aussi très familière. Elle croît devant mon chalet.
Bonne journée encore

A beauty! The overcast light really brought out some beautiful color saturation. Nice sharp detail with a well controled DOF. The fly makes a nice addition for scale. Well done my friend!
j'ai rencontré ses fleur a 1800M dans le massif de la grande chartreuse,j'ai fait une paire de photo mais je m'aperçois qu'elle sont loin d'etre aussi belle que celle-ci.sur celle-ci le fond est bien flou contrairement aux miennes.
il en existe aussi des blanches,a moins que je me trompe de fleur.

What a pretty bouquet you have for us here. Field Gentian, and this is such a pretty flower, and so sharp and and colourful and so well displayed for us.
Thank you, thank you

A truly superb composition thanks to an unorthodox but brilliant PoV
Excellent colours and details

very elegant presentation of the Field Gentian - perfectly placed focus on petals while a short depth of field allows the leaves to fade rapidly into the pleasant softness of an ideally fitting neutral distant backgroud. And the visiting fly adds the spice for a good story. Thank you!
My best regards,
