Just another Oxalis pes-caprae version. This flower was under full sun, but I used a polarized filter and colours are a little more golden than actual ones. I like in this pair the way they mixed.
If you to read something about this flower, see previous post.
Have a look to Shirgold's WS. He's enhaced the photo a lot!

En coincidencia con la última presentación de tu vecino JL publicas esta especie de Oxalis tan bella por su colores Jose y con esos detalles tan delicados con los que cuenta retratados de una manera maravillosa.
Nitidez, foco ajustado pero efectivo, los contornos bien marcados, el gran contraste sobre el difuso fondo verde gracias a una apropiada iluminación, convierten a esta imagen en una presentación de calidad.
Un gran abrazo... Ricardo

Hola José, bellísimos trebolines, ver una pradera llena de ellos, es un gustazo, son luminosos, y cuando el viento los mueve... a ti se ve que te gustan, como a mi. Buena macro con todo lujo de detalles, Saludos( dice que este fin de semana llueve por aquí, a ver si nos aviva la flora autóctona) mañana vuelvo.

Hello Jose,
This is another beautiful portrait of this Oxalis. I like this sophisticated composition and these nice naturals’ colors. I wonder why you used the 1/750 seconds setting though. Where you tying to catch an insect? This is a very nice BG that suits your subject well. Thanks,

Hi Jose.
This one is as beautiful as previous shot of these flowers. I like the exact reproduction of the delicate yellow colour tones very much. The soft lighting is very pleasant to eye. Deep dark-green extremely blurred BG highlights the beauty of the flowers perfectly. Very nice picture. My compliments and TFS.

Hi Jose,
Your use of the polarizer has indeed brought out an interesting tinge to the colour and softened the light.I like the side-on perspective that has created epth and good detail is shown of the viens in the petals.
Regards, David

Magnífica macro Jose. Miestras te escribo escucho una canción que dice "yo sólo quiero ser real...". Preciosa imagen con unos detalles que ya quisiera para mis fotos.
Calidos saludos, que este año el calor no faltará.

Hi Jose

This is really a very beautiful flower presented in a wonderful photo.
The bright color of the flower contrast lovely with ther BG, isolating itself very nicly and also focusing all the attention on it.
I really like those concentric lines on the petals, leading all in the orage core - they are very sharp and well visible.
Also the rather DOF works excellently here, and, together with the good POV, describe a very beautiful composition.
Very well done, my friend!

Bravo and TFS

Hola Jose !
Una bella flor que en esta época aparece por toda la zona mediterránea.
De niños solíamos hacer competencias de quien puede comer la mayor cantidad de tallos de esta planta - horrible!
Gracias por revivirlas a estas memorias!

decided to try a workshop..

bonjour josé
je trouvais qu'il manquait un peu de lumiere mais je vois que le WS a deja été realisé pour cela,sinon rien a redire.

Hi Jose,
Had to miss quite a few of your quality images due to "forced" exile from the Web recently :-(!
Anyway, glad to be back and enjoying your latest post of these lovely flowers.
The composition as usual is immaculate. I like the colour tone you decided to opt for with the use of filters. It is gentle and soothing on the eyes.
Warm regards,

Hello Jose,
Very good shot! I very much like the "interaction" between flowers and the framing along with the POV really works. The colours are a little gloomy and I think Shir done a good job making them more striking.
overall, nice job on spotting and capturing it!

Points later :-)

Hello Jose,
wonderful macro, from this POV we get to see a lot of detail on the pedals and inside the flower. Very nice use of you filter, added some extra texture. Very well composed.

Hello Jose, this is a good composition but I feel it's underexposed. I think Shir's WS does it some justice, well done.

Hi dear Jose ,

very well done.
i like to see that for a long time.
thanks for sharing my good friend

Very wonderful close-up.Nice POV, colours and soft lights.TFS

Hi Jose.
Beautiful is this close-up of this oxalis (and very good make to Shir's WS).I like very POV and fine details.It is really very pleasant composition with amazing colours and very nice contrast.
Very nice done.TFS.
Best greetings Milos

Hello José,
beautiful point of view! Perfectly pointed focus, very subtle colours, smooth falloff in sharpness adds to the great depth. Like a fine painting.
Thank you! Best regards,
