Hello Josep,
excellent blue flowers well seen in good detail and exciting contrast.
The softness rendered is lively especially with the drying up one, in purplish colour. It adds special element to the composition.

Hello Josep Ignasi.
This is a real beauty which you have captured in this lovely shot.
The sharpness and POV are great and clarity is amazing. The focus is spot-on, where the blurry BG gives a great contrast to these tiny blue beauties. Well seen!Best regards Siggi

Hello Ignasi
congratulations for the shot, excellent sharpness and contrast.
Fantastic colors and excellent POV.
Thanks for sharing
Hello Vanni

Hola Josep,
Ahhh... cautivantes tonalidades azul/violeta de estas flores. que al mismo tiempo están dispuestas en forma muy interesante. Buna selección del POV. Tengo algunas reservas respecto al recorte cuadrado, pero tampoco se me ocurre ninguna otra forma a menos que algo de tallo y flores continúara hacia arriba y hubieras recortado en vertical. Pero olvidalo!... es una foto visualmente atractiva. Saludos / Gracias por compartir!

Hi Josep MF,

TFS and have a nice day MF!


Hola Josep

Dificil es este color como el rojo para fotografiarlo, pero ha quedado bien contrastada con esa flor de color diferente.

Un saludo de Antonio
