Hi Ishi,

Very lovely iris, which is also not often presented.

I wouldn't have go for this setting. There was room to go to a much lower ISO, and consequently get more vivid colors and details. 1/160 was not necessary even handheld. Without tripod you can still set the camera on a bag or anything at hand to stabilize it and go as slow as 1/10.

Best regards

Hello Ishi,
What stunning bluish pastel colors this particular type of Iris is wearing. The thin yellow contrasting stripes gives it a special decorative look. Rosie would love to have one of these growing in her flower beds.

Hi Ishi,
nice flowers. Very good white balance. Perfect point of view.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Ishi,
Incredible beauties you have in December!
This Iris flower was well captured with top clarity and natural colours with good use of the shade light.
Well done and thanks.
Best wishes for 2013!


I won't bother this one as I assume the blueness is natural color!! The POV is fine, I like it. Have a great Sunday.
