[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Autumn slowly arrives and plants, flowers and trees are changing their colours. This fine flower is ,I suppose ,a kind of Peucedanum (eventually Peucedanum austriacum,shape of seeds). If I'm wrong, a botanist will surely correct my ID.
The grey background is in fact a brook near which this plant was growing.

Hola Anne,
original flor seca,
bonitos detalles,
bg é iluminación...

Perfect background here...there's a repeat of the pattern almost - the sparkle of theater and the sparkly feeling of the flower.
Very interesting and beautiful.

Bonjour Anne,
A beautiful capture!
It has certain reemblance with fireworks, by the form of the seeds and teh bokeh at the background.
You made a well balanced composition of this plant, with nice light.
Well done and thanks for share it.
Mes amities,

Hello Anne,
This looks so much better full size!
The thumbnail is not able to convey the subtle colour tones and the finer details, of course...
Well framed and a dynamic composition too!

Hi Anne,
schade, der Herbst ist da - aber auch hier gibt es so schöne und abstrakte Dinge zu sehen - dieser Kümmel ist wundervoll, der Blick von oben, einfach klasse.
Danke und liebe Grüße

Hi Anne,
What a marvellous formation of these flowers - simply beautiful. I like the stars around it. Superb lighting and the smooth BG highlights them perfectly. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Anne,
Beautiful flowers even at this dry out stage. I also took a few shots of flowers at this stage during last weekend. Hope to post in the near future. The Peucedanum image is crisp clear with excellent color clarity. POV and composition are great.

Hi Anne!

What makes this picture outstanding is the artistic aspect. It looks like a fine handmade christmas decoration. You know, the ones we all made when we were at school. I also like the totally blurred background which overall is in the same color tones as the foreground. The little light spots underline the artistic effect.

Well seen, well done!

Kind regards

Supoerb, sobre, simple ,riche et majestueu, j'adore.

Bonjour Anne j'aime beaucoup cette composition automnale et simple, excellents détails et profondeur

Hi Anne, splendid dry flowers with great focus and excellent sharpness, good blurry BG, very well done, ciao Silvio
:) later

Hello Anne,
Seedheads are often so beautiful and the way you've captured this one is marvellous. I love the light and the sharp details of the seeds against a very beautiful dark background. A very artistic composition!
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

Bonjour Anne,
J'aime beaucoup cette photo et la couleur presque argentée de la plante. Beau cadrage, très nette, tout ce qu'il faut !

Hi Anne,
I love flower photography, but always have the problem to ID them. So I can't help you verify the ID. I do however like your top down composition. It gives the plant a kind of 3D feel. The warm colors of the seeds and the grey OOF BG is very beautiful. On my monitor it looks like you oversharpened the photo. There is pixalation around the edges of the seeds.

Hi Anne.
Common subject but you managed the do brilliant reproduction. I like the opposition of the well illuminated, perfectly sharpened and detailed plant and absolutely smooth dark deep BG. Composition of the image is excellent too. My compliments and TFS.

Hello Anne,
Wonderfull details of plant. Bacgroun color supports it well.
Well Composed

Hi Anne,
Lovely contrast of the silvery seedpods against the greyish background ...... great depth of field and focus.

Nice work.


a good piece of advertising lighting..
we get the message and nothing distracts
f10 did you proud and the high speed leads me to think you used a highish asa rating
no flash is indicated in the details..
natural and quite poetic shot

C'est magnifique!
Les détails sont à ce point délicats qu'on croirait une esquisse japonaise.
Je ne suis ni fan ni spécialiste des natures mortes, mais celle-ci est vraiment très belle.


Elegante composición con una excelente luz. Bien conseguido el difícil contraste.
Saludos Anne y buen fin de semana.
