After the Rain I – Wilds Flowers

After an intense storm I decided to illuminate some wild flowers with a hand lamp of connected to the automobile and to capture this image.

I ignore the name of this species but here in Buenos Aires, they grow in all place, streets, parks, etc. as a weed or bush with stalks that usually exceed 30 cms. and whose flowers in bouquet don't surpass when they are open the 7mm. approximately of diameter.

Taking advantage of the total still of the wind and that they were among the cars parked inside a fishing club, I could capture them with low speed and to obtain this result...

I hope you like it J

Hi Ricardo

Another very beautiful flower to your collection.
I really like the idea with the illumination here - it gave you a very nice warm light on the flower and nothing else. Also because of that, the contrast is great and the colors are charming.
Very nice clear details and sharpness and a wonderful composition.

Bravo, my friend, and TFS

Well done Ricardo, a pleasing image.
Very nice color, light, detail, and DOF.
The black BG works well to isolate. And of course the "wet" look adds greatly :)
Happy Holidays!

Hola Ricardo Agabey,
Impressive shot. Very nice detailed macro work. What can I say? I was charmed.

Muchas gracias amigo mio y saludos sinceros.


Hi Ricardo,
a beautiful picture. Lovely colours, good details and POV.
The flower standout well from the dark BG.
The droplets is a great bonus.
Very welldone, my friend.

Hello Ricardo,
One can make out that this is not a hurried shot and that a lot of thinking and planning has gone into it before pressing the shutter.
Impressive juxtaposition of the light- coloured flowers against the deeply dark BG achieved through perceptive use of fill flash. The tripod-mounted camera records the details, especially of the water drops on the flowers, absolutely brilliantly.
Your posts take time in coming, but when they do, they leave a long-lasting impression of their beauty and technical brilliance.

Hola Ricardo,
Estamos ante una obra de arte de la naturaleza y tuya. Los colores cálidos de la lámpara y la robustez de los pétados dan a la flor un aspecto de porcelana muy artístico y las gotas de agua añaden sensaciones extañas y atractivas. Todo ello con el fondo negro proporcional una atmósfera muy sugerente.
Un saludo cordial, José Miguel

Magnificent close up .... my friend!
Good detail, colours and sharpness!
Composition and exposure are spot on! Good POV and framing! Take care Ana:)

Hello Ricardo,
This is indeed very beautiful. I like those great details, colors and black BG that is much appropriated. Those water droplets are a big plus and you managed exposure very well. Thanks for sharing this beautiful one.

Hi Ricardo,
Water droplets on these flowers are amazing, giving a sense of freshness. Nicely captured.
Superb shot.

Hola Ricardo,
No estoy muy seguro de haberla visto, pero si lo estoy en que es una foto estupenda. Los detalles, el macro y las gotitas de rocío estan mortales! Lo mismo la cálida iluminación y el fondo oscuro. Hay que esperar mucho tus fotos pero vale la pena.

Wow Ricardo,
What a beautiful composed picture. Good framing and very detailed. The colours are so pleasantly saturated when it has rained. Very good choosen background.
Compliments, Ruud

Esta es una verdadera obra de arte. Coincido con Josè. Las hojas parecen de porcelana, y las gotas de agua esferas de cristal y amatista. Buen ojo para ver las pequeñas maravillas de la naturaleza y brindarlas como regalo todos tus amigos.

great shot, i love the water droplets

Hola Ricardo,
Muy didáctica tu nota, que nos ayuda a comprender mejor el efecto logrado en tu foto.
Un fondo negro siempre funciona muy bien, haciendo resaltar los colores que sostiene, en este caso los delicados cremas.
Es bien particular el efecto global creado, algo así como "porcelanizado".
Me impresiona el uso de ISO 50 de noche, sin que salga solo ruido.
Muy buena y balanceada la composición.

Hello Ricardo,

marvellous "juicy" presentation!
The bright but subtly coloured blossoms emerge from a dark background in mesmerizing beauty. Perfect details are coming with a very skillfully placed falloff in sharpness to create a pleasantly soft and tender appearance of these blossoms. And the droplets of water do a very good job here - not only to add the final luster of perfection but also to serve as a scale for the apparently rather small dimensions of these gentle blossoms.
Another very beautiful presentation from you my friend. Thank you! Best regards,


P.S.: Please take my apologies for mentioning that I would prefer not to see any bold coloured letters used in the text of the notes. Large red letters as here in your headline are a little bit of a "vampire" - drawing attention away from the picture, and interfering with its fragile beauty on the screen.

Hi Ricardo, lovely wild flowers, good composition, nice delicate colors, well done, ciao e buon week end, Silvio

Hi Ricardo, great close-up. The colours of the flowers are highlighted really well with the the dark contrasting background. Great play with highlights and shadows and the details and sharpness are spot on. The position of the flowers is also very good, sweeping from the top right down to the bottom left and the droplets finish this wonderful composition excellently. Great work my friend, have a great christmas.

Best wishes,

Hola Ricardo.
Una preciosa imagen.
Muy nitida y un fondo muy bueno.
Un saludo.

Hola Ricardo.

Estas flores traen a mi mente recuerdo de otras que vi cuando era nino y vivia en Argentina a los alreededores de Rosario. No se si seran las mismas ya que esa memoria tiene casi 53 aňos, pero al verlas, me recordo del perfume de estas.
Me encanta la composicion y las gotas de agua sobre la flor.
Te deseo de todo corazon para ti y los tuyos, unas Felices Navidades y un Prospero y Saludable Aňo Nuevo.

Muchas Gracias por todo durante este que esta por terminar.

Saludos y un fuerte abrazo.

Hello Ricardo, lovely image. The water drolets are excellent and I liek the way you lit the scene with your headlights. I think the headlights have produced a yellow colour cast which I have done a WS to counteract - I hope you don't mind.

Lovely composition. Well done.

beautiful, tell us more about the flowers, Ori

Ricardo, buenas noches desde el Hemisferio de arriba. Otra maravilla de foto, cargada de buenos detalles, con una luz fantástica y un fondo idóneo.

Hi Ricardo,
I like the way you got this white flower with the dark bg.

tfs paula

Pues si que da buen resultado la iluminación manual aprovechando la energía del auto. So notan los tonos amarillos aportados por la iluminacion incandescente, pero en este caso aportan una calidez a la foto que queda bien, refrescada con las pequeñas gotas de la tormenta. El enfoque preciso ofrece como siempre unos muy buenos detalles, y como ya te he dichi en fotos anteriores, el postprocesado, sea o no gracias a tu nueva pantalla se acerca mucho mas a mis gustos.
El otro día me regalaron un peuqeño conversor de 12V a 220V y 175W para conectar al mechero del coche, habia pensado que sería muy util para recargar las baterías de las cámaras, pero tendré que pensar en hacerme con una lampara de mano yo tambien :)

Olá, Ricardo!
Gosto muito dessas fotos de flores silvestres, principalmente daquelas bem minúsculas, que são de uma beleza rara e que normalmente nunca são observadas como merecem, a não ser quando em fotografias como esta.
O fundo preto deu muito destaque ao assunto e essas gotas deixadas pela chuva deram um toque especial à sua belíssima composição.
Um Feliz Ano Novo para você!

Hola Ricardo,
Una macro bellisima. Los detalles son perfectos y las gotas son preciosas.
El fondo oscuro es bello - un contraste con las flores.
Las flores eran de color rosado o es la iluminación?

Merhaba Ricardo,
Perfect exposure against a dark background. The depth-of-field and composition are nicely executed. I like the drops of water on the flowers.
Best wishes,

Hello Ricardo

Simple and very strong composition which - again - shows that simplicity always works. The diagonal line made by the flowers is very good here. The colours works great with the dark background - I would have guessed that you had used a fillflash here but no. Excellent sharpness with so many details in the flowers. Very good colours. All over a very pleasant picture to look at.

Well done

Hi Ricardo

Sorry my esteemed friend that I'm a bit late with this update, but the rat-race really had me in a strangle hold since the weekend.

What else can I say, but WOW? This 7mm little flowers, which normally would probably be ignored by all, were brought to magnificent attention by this amazing macro. You managed so well to show us this little beauty in all its brilliant splendour. This is also perfectly enhanced by the remaining rain drops still attached to the flowers.

The composition and technical aspects of the shot is absolutely flawless. The dazzling flowers were well complimented by the dark BG, the colours are outstanding, the details are spot-on and well defined, and the exposure was masterfully executed.

Great work and TFS.
