Common name : Yellow Flag – Scientific name : Iris pseudacorus – Family : Iridaceae.
Description : Iris Pseudacorus, is common in Europe on river-banks, and in marshes and ditches. It is a water plant of nature. Its flowers appear in June and July, and are of a golden-yellow colour. Yellow flowers with brown spots on the falls. The leaves are from 2 to 4 ft. long, and half an inch to an inch broad. Towards the latter part of the year they are eaten by cattle. The seeds are numerous and pale-brown; they have been recommended when roasted as a substitute for coffee, of which, however, they have not the properties. The astringent rhizome has diuretic, purgative and emetic properties, and may, it is said, be used for dyeing black, and in the place of galls for ink-making.
Photo : Slightly cropped, resized and framed in 800x600 for TN. I saw this wild Iris on the bank of Annecy lake.

I hope you like it and in advance thanks for your useful comments...

Hello Christian,
It is difficult to shooting yellow objects. I know it on my own experiments. You did this job excellent. Gradation of yellow colour is reproduced perfectly. All other components of this shot are very good too.

This really is an excellent capture. I have these growing locally and couldn't decided even how to try to capture them.

you have done really well on the colours and brightness, and the detail is excelelnt.

Hi Christian
A great close-up of this dainty and very beautiful little iris.
Your composition and POV is very good, making use of the leaves to give balance to the slightly off centre flower. Amazing colours were enhanced by the excellent exposure management. The darkish BG compliments the flower very well, while the DOF was spot-on to capture some stunning details.
Good work and TFS.

Beautifull details and color. Love the compo and contrasts. Very well done.

Hello Christian,
Very nice close up.Colors,lighting,details and contrast are perfect.Thanks for sharing.

Il n'est jamais facile de photographier une ou des fleurs. Je m'essaie souvent, mais jamais satisfait.
Vous avez très bien réussi celle-ci et en plus, elle est jaune! Très beaux détails, le rendu des couleurs excellent. Merci pour cette belle présentation.
Ici, au Québec, l'Iris le plus populaire est le Latifolia.


Hi Christian,

A bit rushed tonight, just time for a quick visit.
Well worth a big :)

Thanks for posting, have a great weekend.

Hi Taz,

Beautiful capture of this pretty iris, both colors and details are fantastic. Well done. :)
