Salut Marie,
Superbe photo. Cette plante éclos à cette période de l'année.
C'est un très beau sujet de photos. J'aime la lumière blanche qui jais de la plante sans être saturé. les couleurs, le BG et la composition est excellente.
Merci, Roger

This is quite lovely Marie. It is perfectly exposed... glistening white without being overexposed. Very nice. The shallow depth of focus is really nice.

Bonjour Marie,
This is a beautiful capture of a a Milkweed in seed. The sharpness and lighting are superb and the neutral BG makes a good contrast.
The Milkweek is the larval host plant of the Monarch butterfly.
Well done and TFS!

Hello Marie

A very artistic shot of this milkweed pod and seeds.
The shot has excellent focus and sharpness.
The POV and DOF are excellent and the whispy seeds show well against the beautiful OOF BG.
The colours are natural and well saturated.

Hi Marie,
You show us something very beautiful today and the natural phenomenon is freezed wonderfully. The silken glow looks fantastic and the BG lets the subjects stand out perfectly. Superb natural lighting, exposure and DOF. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Marie,
This is a fine capture, with superb details in seeds and hair!
I like the pleasant colour palette, with the fine background colour to enhance the subject!

Salut Marie,
J'ai déjà rencontré cette plante et ses fruits (ou plutôt ce qui sert à les transporter par le vent est très soyeux)! Belle profondeur de champ! Profondeur de champ très agréable!
Bien vu :-)


Hello Marie,

I really like this simple, but very effective picture. It's very much a picture about light and texture and it has been beautifully executed, with good composition, pov and dof - nature at it's most sublime.

Kind regards,

Hola Marie. Veo que el otoño llego pronto a tu Pais tambien. Exelente foto, grandes detalles de las semillas de esta planta. Saludos Luis52.

Hi Marie,
it looks like you have taken a photo of milkweed which is as Ivan says is food for Monarch Butterfly caterpillars.This photo has nice detail and colour going for it.Thanks for putting up this one as it has been years since I last saw any of these for real. Bob

Hi Marie,
Looks like milkweed to me Or at least thats what we always called it, when you pick it the stems actually "bleed" a white milky substance, monarch butterflies love this plant too! Good sharp photo with good details. tFS

Hello Marie,
Beautiful silver colours against the dark BG. Perfect details, DOF and composition.

bonjour marie
je suis desolé mais je ne connais pas le nom de cette plante,enfin je suis sûr que la reponse a deja été donnée.
l'exposition est bien maitrisée sur le blanc et le BG est tres bien realisé.

Bonjour Marie,

Jolie et originale cette plante. J'aime beaucoup le coté soyeux que tu as su faire merveilleusement ressortir.

Merci et bravo


Hi Marie - very well exposed capture of this plant spreading its seeds - you did very well to capture the delicate white strands as well as proper exposure of the seed case.

Nice work, Marie. There's a lot happening with this milkweed, and you show it all. Good color and detail, along with adequate depth of field and good composition.

Bonjour Marie,
quelle jolie photo, la composition est réalisée tout en douceur grace a une très bonne lumière et un background magnifique, bravo pour cette magnifique photo artistique,
