[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last year, I posted these two photos: Herb seeds and Mediterranean bush but it was late to show the flowers. So here they are!
The workshop shows the same flower with another light.
They do not smell at all, what has been a surprise to me as I expected the opposite. I thought it was a Clematis flammula ("Fragrant Virgin's Bower" in English or "Clemátide olorosa" in Spanish).
Capturing what I think it’s a fragrant clematis needs -where I live- a hard climbing, so I've to wait one more year. Patience seems to be closely related with this flower!
Have a good weekend!

Hi Jose,
Beautiful flowers and very interesting no know that they dont smell at all. The dying sunlight gives a golden glow and they looks charming. Superb light and shadow play here. Excellent POV to portray they in full bloom and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Bonjour Jose,
Belle lumière du soir sur ces fleurs très fines et nerveuses. Elles ont lair d'être en effervescence. Peut-être faut-il tendre l'oreille pour entendre ce qu'elles disent.
Bon après-midi

Hi Jose,
Very nice shot on this beautiful flower. Sharp and well exposed image. Lovely warm sun light casted on flowers. Very well done and tfs.

Hola José Miguel,
Pues ahora ya conocemos el ciclo completo de esta planta!
Que curioso el efecto que tienen en conjunto todas estas flores, parecen como pequeãns arañas todas juntas unas con otras.
Me gusta mucho la cálida luz que captaste.
Enhorabuena y gracias por esta presentación.
Un gran saludo,

Lovely capture of this clematis in evening light with fine DOF and sharpness despite the low apeture. Excellent composition.

Preciosas florecillas, con esa luz preciosa que recuerda la luz de la tarde cuando empieza a declinar...
Fantástica José.

Hola Jose,
Wonderful lighting in this well composed and focused shot, thanks for sharing Jose.

Nice composition José!
Controlled lighting, depth of field and POV!


Hola amigo mio José,
A very nice portrait of this Clematis, sunset lights look superb. You have done a great shot. Bravo!
Saludos sinceros,

Hello Jose,
A delicate flower is well depicted!
The details are nicely captured, sharp and colourful...
The interesting light really gives live to the composition!
Pablo -

Me gusta el enfoque y la profundidad, pero la luz, a pesar de que se intuye de atardecer, no acaba de convencerme y además dificulta la visión detallada de las flores, muy liadas. No me pegues jeje, es que siempre te voté máximo y esta solo la mitad. Y es que lo veo así. Un abrazo José.

hi jose,
nice flowers captured well, liked the composition and the pov very much, the effect of sunlight on the flower looks wonderful,
well done,
tfs & regards

Fascinating! the blooms are smaller than the ones in England.
Superb colours and details

Dear José,
you have taken good advantage of the hour before sunset, a very pleasant time that I also prefer for its rich warm light, and the timeless tranquillity after the heat of the day.
Well captured blossoms that look plesantly fragile in front of the falling blue shadows. They look very similar to those of a small bush growing at forest borders near our vineyards. Here we call it

"Clematis recta".

I also like the powerful version of "Otra luz" in the workshop.
With thanks, and best regards,

Hi Jose.
This is beautiful and very interesting the kind of clematis.Well composed and very good exposure.I really like superb light.Very well done.
TFS,with greeting Milos.

Hello Jose,
I've looked at the workshop, and prefer the cooler color and dark BG over this one..
I like most the light here, it adds to the 3D effect.
Have a good weekend also mf,

Hi Jose,
The lighting of this photo is the first thing that really made this photo look marvelous to me. Such wonderful warm colors and such nice soft shades. The details and the shapes of the flowers was the second thing that made me stop at it.
A wonderful photo taken with great care.

José, this is beautiful.

Very nice warm colors. I enjoy composition and sharpness, as well as exposure.

It seems that so many flowers are presented in a harsh light. I like yours a lot due to the soft lighting. Both images are really nice. Thanks for sharing them.

Hi Jose.
I like your very nice shot. Lighting is really so attractive and flowers are shown with great taste and delicateness. Excellent composition, POV and great DOF. Two plans – sharp flowers and similar blurred plants are looked very well. My compliments and TFS.
