Hi Hendrik, these are lovely, they look so fresh and pure you can tell you've just shot them in the wild. Your composition and DOF make this a very attractive shot and your exposure is spot on. It is a beautiful wild meadow scene. TFS :)

This is an excellent shot. The colors are perfect. I really like the DOF on this shot. Sharp in the center with slightly OOF flowers in foreground and backround. Nice Work!

In afrikaans is dese naam ook "Magrietjies". :)
Wat een pragtige bossie het jy hier bymekaar gekry. Pragtige plaat Hendrik. Die blomme is my gunstelling omdat dit so eenvoudig tog treffend is. Goed gedaan.

Die blomme in Nederland is seker al pragtig?
