On this darkest day of the year I feel like posting something colourful, and found this bright shining flower image in my files!

This one is from middle of summer, a summer that turned out to be the finest for many years weather wise!

Hi Pablo

A wonderful macro work! This really is a charming colorful, as you said, and brightens us our spirit, because here we've been having a lor of bad weather recently.
The details on this lovely flower are great and very sharp, the POV is nice and the DOF is excellent (maybe just a little too shallow, but still works ok) and it gave you a fantastic BG, which contrast very well with the bright colors of the flowers.
Very nicly framed and composed, too.

Bravo and TFS

Hello Pablo,
Wonderful flower close up.Well seen and composed.POV,colors,lighting and framing are also excellent.Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hi Pablo,
Some beautiful and colordul summer flowers. Rich color saturation and sharp detail. They are well seperated from the nice OOF backround. I can almost smell them and feel the warm breeze. Looks great!
Happy Holidays,

Hello Pablo,
This is a very interesting composition and DOF. I love the contrast between this bright yellow and the dark green. You caught lovely details, especially on the buds. Well done and composed. Thanks,

Well done Pablo.
I like the warm color, comp, POV, light, and BG a lot.
Perhaps it would be better if the nearest flower was the focal point of your comp, or you + the DOF. Still a very pleasing image :)
Happy Holidays!

Hello Pablo,

Excllent work, greay colors Bg POV details very crisp, Nicly composed and capture photo, Perfect work

Hi Pablo.
Short but nice lyrical note. I like your choice of scene for capturing. Lovely objects with perfect colours and texture. Perfect colourful BG. Combination of yellow and green colour tones is non-risk always. In these cases I usually prefer f/11-18. The beauty of these flowers deserves it. My best regards and compliments.

Hello Pablo,
Just right for a grey day in the North!! Beautiful sharp shot of this Hawkweed. I like the petals of this flower, squared off at the top. Lovely colours and a nice composition.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Pablo

Just what I need. I spent the best part of the day on a freezing hillside taking pictures of ice-crystals. This is lovely, warm and full of sunshine. Lovely colours and excellent DOF



Hola Pablo, wonderful colors, perfect focus, great light, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Pablo,
A warm photo endeed! Colors, composition and background are lovely.

Hi Pablo,
This flowers are fabulous!
It looks like a ribbon for a gift, specially the end of the petals.
POV is simply excellent, we can appreciate a lot of details on the flowers.
The dark background works pretty well against that bright yellow. Good exposition and color saturation.
Composition is great, with the flowers carefully arranged on the available space.
Congratulations for this photo, and happy holidays!

Hi Pablo,

These are lovely looking flowers.
The yellow really gives a feel of summer.
Very well composed, excellent background and good details.
Thanks for sharing and merry christmas!

Greetings, Nel

Thanks for the idea ... you have brightened our winter
full of snow & cold with this bright GOLDEN yellow
Its a great image.
Very sharp.
Best regards, Mario.

Hi Pablo,
Colors are great. Well composed picture.
However, DoF was too shallow and -IMHO- focus was not at the right place. With shallow DoF like this, should be nice if it was focused on center-part of one of the yellow flower, perhaps the one at left side.

La simpleza de estos dientes de león, tan conocidos por la mayoría de nosotros, captados con calidad y una expresión artística maravillosa.
Me gusta el punto de vista principalmente y el encuadre y recorte elegido, muy bien pensado por su efecto visual.
Nitidez, intensos colores y el fondo ideal, gracias al atinado DOF y el control de la luz, conforman una presentación de alto nivel.
Mis mejores deseos Pablo para estas fiestas que se avecinan... Ricardo

The simplicity of these dandelion, so well known for most of us, captured with quality and wonderful artistic expression.
I like the point of view mainly and the elected framing and cropping, very well thought by its visual effect.
Sharpness, intense colors and the ideal bottom, due to accurate DOF and the control of the light, they conform a presentation of high level.
My best wishes Pablo for these holidays that approach... Ricardo

Hi Pablo,
Seem that these flowers are dancing. They enjoy sunlihgt in full bloom and rich in color. Very nice and adorable picture.

Hi Pablo,
A very beautiful sunny picture with such great clarity. A very interesting presentation, especially on the focus. It created a lot of depth. Just love the color contrast and the perfect sharpness. I needed some of these colors, since it has been a grey week.

Hola Pablo:
Bonita macro de esta flor silvestre. Buen encuadre y buena presentación. Saludos Sira

Hello pablo !
I'm not used to see close-ups from you, but it is a nice surpise as the picture looks fantastic ! I love the vivid and cheerful colors of these flowers, and composition as well as POV and BG are wonderful. Very well done !

bonjour pablo
des couleurs aussi vives me donnent envie d'etre deja aux beaux jours pour pouvoir s'adonner a la photo.
belle composition.

Pablo, this would be hawkweed [See Hieracium ...].
< There is also a rusty orange variety >
Possibly yours is the mouse-eared hawkweed.

Not too long ago I still had ONE flower like that that was confused abt. the weather.
It started blooming in the gravel of my driveway with a single flower in total ignorance of the impending frost!

As a consolation about these darkest days look at the sunrises per:
sun-1 or: sun-2

Thanx for the bright cheer!

Greetings, ;j.

thanks for sharing

Hello Pablo,
Bright colourful flowers against the darker bg looks so outstanding beautiful!
good composition well seen
greeting my friend

Hi Pablo,

A nice image of the yellow flowers, the photo has a good composition, sharpness and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


So many comments already posted, no wonder! It's breath-taking, a simple plant looks very much like a Taraxacum spp but slightly unusual, a different variety from those we are commonly seeing in southern europe or central europe. I love the magick flowers create on a picture!

Hi Pablo,
Beautiful yellow flowers which is dazzling in the sunlight. Very neat and sharp image with perfect lighting and exposure. The darkish BG helps in highlighting the flowers. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.
