Hi Jose.
Very nice inclined composition of the shot and perfect reproduction of all beauty of this flower. Details of the petals are really great: we can see even their microscopic elements and colour tones. DOF is perfect too: whole plant is in focus. Strong sunlight is also very impressive. Perfect done and TFS.

Hi Jose,

What a beautiful closeup of this Iris. The colors are magnificent as are the details. I haven't seen one since I moved to the southwest of the US. So nice to see this one.


Your artistic eye and your technical expertise endow even the most ordinary subjects with special grace and charm, Jose.

This beautiful Iris is in no way an ordinary object, though. What I am trying to say is that in photography, a beautiful subject does not always turn out to be beautiful per se; it requires that special artistic eye.
This beautiful images is the perfect example of my contention.
Best regards,

Hi Jose, wonderful flower with splendid colors, very well done, have a nice week end, ciao Silvio

great pic, beautiful natural light and fantastic DOF, TFS Ori

Resulta muy dificil obtener un color tan real como el que has conseguido.
Unos detalles del diez. Realmente hermosa.
Saludos, JL.

It frightens me: "... a little soon according experts opinion. But temperatures are higher than usual..."
Animals, PLANTS, and HISTORY are "telling" us something.
Are we going to 'listen', 'see' and use our intellect to do the right thing/s?????
Jose, my friend, this is a detailed, sharp and clearly registered subject.
Best of the best to you.

Olá Jose

Eu não conhecia esta flor...bonitas pétalas num tom forte que me agrada. Bom contraste e nitidez...parabéns!!!


Hi Jose,
Fantastic color and detail that you are presented. Great pov and composition. TFS this fine image.

Hello MF Jose,
This is a superb flower that I think that we also have here. You caught excellent details with perfect natural colors, exposure and composition. The climate is a little disturbed as I can see... I think that we have to be positives as our planet and habitants need good vibes ;) Thanks and have a nice Sunday :)

Hola José,
Fine close capture of a species of spring Iris that I remember from my last visit to Spain in April. Our spring is early too: global warming?
Thisis sharp with fine colouring and composition and contrasts well against the BG.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hi Jose and really sorry for the late return, but i was actually gone on a field trip :)

Another lovely shot from you, my friend!
The colors of this beautiful Iris are so vivid and wonderful and they stand out so beautifully from the picture.
The details are also terrific and very sharp and the DOF is impeccable - blurring the BG very nicely and therefore isolating your subject very well.
Nicely exposure and composed, as well.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Jose,

Very nice picture with very fine colors and details, well composed.


Hola Jose !
Another wonderful flower from you ! You are lucky to see them grow in your fields, must be too cold for them in France because I have never seen them, except by the gardener. You managed to reproduce the details perfectly, with excellent details and beautiful colors. Beautiful composition too. very well done !

Hello Jose,
This looks so beautiful on my screen. Very nice composition that fills the frame. Excellent exposure and superb color in daylight. Well done. Regards,

Beautiful like all Irises. Very good nuances of violet and very good BG. Nice composition. And in Romania it is a little soon, and many species is flowering now.
Best regards, Cezar T.

Hello José,
a striking beauty indeed. Most impressing how well you handled the depth of field necessary to show all those rich details and those fascinating hairy landing strips on that voluminous blossom in perfect focus. Thank you!
My best regards,

Hola Jose,
Very usual Iris species for me and for my country. You will remember, I've send one in last Autumn, and I've mentioed that we cultivate it in our graveyards to decorate there. I noticed your f value for taking this shot. Best choosing to show whole flower in focus. Bravo and TFS my dear friend.
And please excuse me, I've to work very hard and thus I cannot find a opportunity to visit your pages and write some critiques.
Saludos sinceros desde Turquia.

Bonitas cores deta flor ..... ao longo da estrada aperecem muitas! Gostei das cores naturais e da luz que está excelente! fica bem Ana:)

Otra magnífica muestra de tu pasión y talento para retratar flores Jose, con un gran contraste de colores entre el iris y el entorno lleno de verdes.
Me gusta el punto de vista que elegiste, generando una imagen clara, precisa y plagada de detalles de este bello ejemplar.
El escaso y efectivo DOF elegido permite la difusión del segundo plano a pesar de percibir como muy cercano.
Otro punto fuerte es la correcta iluminación, sin reflejos ni sobre exposición alguna a pesar de la intensidad de la misma.
Un gran abrazo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo
