[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Good Morning Everyone,

This is a shot of a common, spring flower, called 'Honesty'. I took it yesterday where it was growing in the hedgerows.

This delightful flower can have blooms which vary between pale pink to a strong purple. After flowering, it creates the most beautiful circular, opalescent seed pods which are sought by flower arrangers for their unusual texture and strength. It is profusely self seeding.

Many thanks for your interest.
Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph. Bev :-)

Hand held.

Hi Bev:) Good Morning MF!
A realy stunningly perfect macro capture of this beautiful spring flower from side view with excellent clarity.
Colours and composition are also splendid and natural.
TFS and happy sunday!

Hi Beverley,
A very good capture of these beautiful flowers. But I think a tripod/monopod, ISO400 and f value larger by 3 stops would have made it more beautiful. Many thanks for sharing.

Hello Beverley,

I liked the colours and the composition.
All the best,

Hi Beverley.
Nice presentation of a cute plant with attractive flowers. A bit soft for my taste but it is not a point and suitable for the subject. Soft lighting and delicate colours are very pleasant for look. Composition of the picture is wonderful as well as the decorate frame. Kind regards and TFS.

Hi Beverley. This is a fair sign that spring is with you. You have taken this plant with its flower wide open. You havee taken this with fine detail on the main flower heads and natural colours. Well done TFS.

Another well captured flower from you Bev. The colours show up well, and the focus on the centre flowers is spot on

Bonjour Bev,
Très belle publication dont la bonne composition permet d'apprécier la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Beverley!

I like this picture very much. It's your style, and the framing suits the subject very well. This could be a postcard or a greeting card as well. The delicate flower and its fine petals contrasts nicely with the dark green background. The overall impression and the refreshing atmosphere that emanates from the picture suits the vernal season very well.

Kind regards


nice portrait, original frame, TFS Ori
