Iris planifolia

Last Iris planifolia I posted was somehow tightened. So I've decided to post another with more space around and with a different color. Being color important to me here, I made a careful "custom white balance" very near the flower to insure color fidelity. This sky blue is not due to the fact that it grows in the north face of a slope, as very near it there are standard and even darker ones.

Hola José.
What a lovely captured iris! A bit different than last one. But very lovely. Anyway, I went to fields to find some yellow colored iris, but there is none at the moment. I think I have to wait for coming spring.
Muchas gracias y buenos noches.
Un cordial saludo

Hello Jose,
I like those colors tones; those flowers look almost phosphorescent :) I guess that they glow in the dark, lol. This is a beautiful composition with excellent details. A superb presentation. Thanks,
Claudine

Hola José Miguel,
Muy interesante esta composición en vertical de los lirios...son de la misma planta que tu anterior foto?
Me gusta el punto de vista utilizado, que nos permite observar, en su conjunto, como es la morfología de esa bellísima flor.
Enhorabuena por la foto, y te deseo que pases unas felices fiestas, con mucha salud y sobre todo paciencia para seguir tomando muchas mas fotos de la naturaleza,
JM

Hola José, El otro trabajo me gustó bastante, ya que esta es una planta muy vistosilla y de unos colores preciosos, y acercarte como lo hiciste la pasada vez me agradó mucho. Esta es una panorámica, que resalta el colorido de estos iris, sobre la demás vegetación... en los dos casos genial, muchos saludos

Hi Jose

Nice colour variation on this Iris. It is cold and icy here today so it is lovely to see flower posts from both you and Pablominto. Lovely colours and a nice composition here

Very beautiful shot of this species of Iris. I love the shape of the flower and the gentle blue colour. Excellent details and a very nice composition.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Sigue siendo una de mis plantas favoritas. Buenos colores y una estupenda composición con aire para dar y tomar.
Salud amigo.

Hello Jose,
Nice portrait of this wild iris.
Good DOF, sharpness, comp. and colour. Maybe the extra blue is due to the shady location, but that does not spoil this shot much.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Hola Josè:
Hermosos colores en esta composiciòn. El cuadro tiene buena perspectiva y profundidad. Los detalles de la vegetaciòn y de las flores es muy interesante. Te envidio por tener estas hermosas flores y poder captarlas. Yo no puedo dar enfoque al color azul, y es mi preferido.
Que tengas una Feliz Navidad tù tambièn.
Un abrazo.

Hola José,
Otra bella toma de esta iridiaceae, a mi personalmente me gusta más esta que la anterior, aunque quizás le falta un pelín de profundidad de campo, sobre todo por las flores de atrás, pero no me hagas mucho caso.
Saludos cordiales.

Well done Jose.
Beautiful colors and pleasing to the eye mf.
DOF is well managed and the soft light works well :)
Happy Holidays.

Recuerdo perfectamente las explicaciones que me brindaste amigo mío en la anterior presentación y teniéndolas en cuenta, considero que esta composición es realmente muy buena y agradable.
Quizás sin el impacto del primer plano de aquella sóla flor, pero con la belleza que nos regala una visión integral de estos maravillosos iris en conjunto con un fondo contrastante y un colorido sensacional.
Mis mejores deseos para estas fiestas que se avecinan... Ricardo

Bonjour Jose

Merci et bravo...JP
Les sourires demain

Hello José,

Hi Jose.
Next your poetic picture with amazing flower and its beauty. Great combination of the blue and nice dark-green color tones. DOF and POV are excellent as usual. Bravo, my friend. Wonderful, pleasant work.

WOW que bonito, me lo parece o ¿es una forma mas tendente al blanco? El iris planifolia tiene tanto formas blancas absolutas como azules, supongo que habrá una gradación completa.
José, perdí tú e-mail y quería mostrarte fotos de las semillas que me enviaste.

Feliz Navidad y Año Nuevo

Abrazo

Hi Jose,
they are beautiful and I love the colours so much. They seem to glow by themselves, you had wonderful light. Thanks and bye

Hello Jose,
Beautiful iris. Delicate looking with fabulous colors. Great sharpness with details to appreciate. With best wishes and Happy Holidays.

El dichoso balance de blancos, una pesadilla con los hongos, te lo aseguro :)
Coincido con Ori que los verdes se ven un poco azules, pero comprendo que a veces es imprescindible forzar el balance de blancos para que es sujeto principal se parezca ala realidad, tambien nos pasa a nosotros con las setas especialmente con la Canon.
Con esta segunda foto, has dejado a esta belleza perfectamente clasificada.
Os deseamos lo mejor para ti y los tuyos en estas fechas y para el 2007. Un abrazo, Felipe.

I wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year my good friend:)!
Está um pouco escura mas está bonita na mesma .... gosto das cores e nota Ana:)

Hello Jose, this is a nice find. You made a good composition of it. I think the whole picture has a blue cast - this could be easily fixed. Nice work.

Happy Christmas

Hola josé.
otra magnifica imagen.
La luz y ese color azul me gustan mucho.
Yo me acuerdo que en mi pueblo natal habia paresida a este iris.Las gentes le decian sebolletas y tenia unos 12 a 15 centimetros de altura.
Felices fiestas.

OMG.!!!
Jose,
This is truely LOVELY.
I get the "impression" that the first Iris facing me is the "original"; and, it is before a mirror. The rest are mere reflections.
A true artist ... you have become.
Hope you & your loved ones enter into a great 2007.
Best regards to my first friend on TN. Forever grateful,
Mario.

Hello Jose,
Lovely details are captured!
A beautiful flower, so delicate and so crisp...
A pleasant composition, where you make the most out of existing light!
