Hi Sigmund!

Welcome on TN!

I'm so glad I have discovered this picture. I like all the species of the Pulsatilla so much. Your picture simply is superb! The backlight creates a marvellous lighting, the pastel colours are so tender and the shapes in the clouds are magnificent. It's a delightful example of beauty and harmony...

Kind regards

Hello Sigmund,
A very fine picture of my favourite flowers, taken with this sublime lateral light, making the scene so lovely, even a bit mysterious.
The image is may be a little bit soft, but it fits to this subject.
Welcome on TN!
Best regards

Hello Sigmund,

Welcome to TN.
That is a really beautiful almost painting like scene you share with us.The sublimal colours and the backlight working to highlight the hairy stalks and the flowers make an eye catching sight.The composition is every bit interesting ceating an excellent mood.The light exudes a certain warmth to the viewer.A little observation of the sky on the left, perhaps a bit of PP work affecting the space, I am not sure though!Or is it the sky and the cloud!Not sure!!!

Well composed with superb colours,PoV and creativity.Look forwad to more of your presentations...

TFS and cheers
