Hi Claude,
Beautiful flowers and you have captured them really well. Superb use of flash lighting and the resultant black BG lets the subjects stand out perfectly. Very sharp image with clear details and lovely colours. Excellent POV to portray it and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Bonjour Claude,
J'avais pensé que tu avais photographié la Knautie avec le flash. Très beau contraste naturel entre la fleur et l'arrière-plan. Est-ce que tu saurais me dire quelle est la différence entre la Knautie et la Scabieuse?
On ne te voit plus très souvent!
Bonne journée

Hi Claude,
Very good composition. Beautiful flower. TFS.

The sunlight and angle of light make the picture so special. As well the clear distinction between the subject and dark background make for a good dynamic. Le puits fait mon ami. Vous saluer.

Belles couleurs et belle composition avec sperbe netteté.

The BG is perfect!!

Bonjour Claude,

Bien vu pour la parfaite utilisation de la lumière.Le BG fait merveilleusement ressortir cette fleur et le contraste est vraiment à propos.
Encore bravo!

Hi Claude.
I see Canon 40D works great as camera for close-up shooting. Beautiful composition of these flowers, DOF, sharpness and details are perfect. Colours are rich and pleasant. I don't understand how you have get dark BG without flash. Wonderful sweet picture. My best regards and TFS.

Hi Claude, wonderful flowers with splendid colors, excellent details and great sharpness, beautiful dark BG, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hallo Claude
This is lovely flower. Thanks for sharing this very dainty and pretty flower with us. The lilac petals are soft on the eye and the little white and orange tipped anthers are a pretty sight. If you would look through my critiques given to fellow members, you’ll notice that the majority of them are awarded to photos containing something with the colour of purple. I love purple and even created a theme with the title "My purple obsession.” This is a lovely close-up, with sharp details. I notice some specs of pollen on the leaves. Thanks for sharing. I have added this photo to my theme.
Kind regards
