[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi Trekkers,

A photo from my huge archives, one which I shot 10 years ago, about the perennial herbaceous plant Blue lettuce (Lactuca perennis), which is rather common on rocks and in dry meadowlands in Hungary. Every flower's blossoming for a few (sunny) hours only, so I was quite lucky to catch this specimen.

Photo was done on the top of the hill named Dédes Tower. PP only included noise reduction besides the usual re-sharpening after re-sizing to the TN-standard.

Thanks for looking - I hope you'll like the photo eventhough it's quite old.

Hi Laszlo,i know very well this speciess,its colors usually makes crazy the camera and isn't easy to take the perfect one. A very sharp capture from above,well done! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Hello 👋 Laszlo,
Quite well captured this beautiful looking 'Blue Lettuce flower 🌸 '. Personally I don't like facing lens towards ground, rather go for eye level POV. But here to show the top portion of the flower, it's the best POV. No question on its exposure as well an its sharpness.
Thanks for sharing your work with us 😊,
Regards and have nice week again ☺

Ciao Laszlo, lovely composition with nice flower, fine details , wonderful natural and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
