Hi Jose,

You did a very interesting photo. I like the delicate colors tones from the photo. I think the red of the flower and the gray of the plant arround give a very nice contrast. I did not see this plant but due to your photo I found out that in Romania is growing Cynoglossum officinale.

Thank you for sharing,

Hola José,
Once again both this fine close macro and the WS original are fine images of C. cheirifolium. We have a less hairy species of Cynoglossum in Sweden with slightly larger flowers. I presume that the intense hairyness of the leaves is to reduce moisture loss rather than as a protection from the cold.

The macro itself shows the tiny flower sharply and with good detail and from an excellent POV.
Gracias por compartirla,
Saludos amigo,

Hi Jose!
How are you?
I saw your WS of this plant in full view and I found that image more interesting, though this one is equally attractive.
You have handled the macro of the tiny flower very well. I like the details and colours within the frame.
Best regards.

Hi Jose,

That's an outstanding macro. I always like to have the "micro-beauty" brought to light, so to speak.

Enjoyed also the link.



Hallo Jose
An absolute divine photo and unbelievably beautiful flower. This image reminds me of all the Christmas decorations and trimmings. The colour and detail is extraordinary and really incredible. I am actually lost for words, because I don't think I have ever witnessed such a beautiful piece of the Creation in real life. Focus, sharpness and framing done marvellously and the presentation is most pleasing to the eye. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Bonjour Jose,
Image impressionante pour nous présenter cette petite fleur à moi inconnue. Belle composition et couleurs de grande beauté. Me réjouis de voir que tu es de nouveau plus présent sur TN.
Joyeuses Pâques à toi et ta famille

Hi friend,
I'm glad to see this beautiful new post from you. I like the overall softness of the colors, beautiful composition and details. This is a lovely tinny subject. Well seen and TFS,

Hola José Miguel,
Que bueno el contraste del rojo con el blanco.
Me gusta la composición, con la flor ubicada ligeramente fuera del centro, y todas las texturas que se aprecian alli.
Enhorabuena y gracias por mostrar la foto.
Un gran saludo,

Hola José,
Nice detail of this tiny flower. Workshop version is very good. I liked the delicate texture of the plant and the soft colors. Gracias,
Un saludo,

Dear José,
a wonderful couple of photos that you are showing us here with the distant shot, and the close-up of this fresh Cynoglossum! I very much like the deliciously pale colours in both, and the gentle rhythm of leaves in the workshop photo. With thanks, and all my best wishes!

Hi Jose

Absolute magic. It looks like this precious and fragile looking little flower is presented in cotton wool to protect it. Such a tiny beauty and perfect in every way. What a wonderful Creator to have made so many things with such delicate detail.

You have done very well to capture this beauty and to reproduce it very true to nature. The details are well defined and the exposure control ensured excellent light on the subject, especially with the white fluffy stuff that abounds around the flower. The composition is well proportioned.

Great work MF and TFS.

Hi Jose

Wonderful details on this tiny plant. The links from your note were very interesting and puts this photo in context. Good focus, perfect POV and lovely subtle colours



Bonjour Jose,
Le grossissement sur cette petite fleur est spectaculaire. Les couleurs sont bien restituées, et l'abondante pilosité des bractées et des feuilles donne un environnement très étrange. Je préfère tout de même le cliché montrant la plante entière, parfaitement net et bien composé.

Preciosa José y un buen acercamiento ya que esa flor es bastante enana. Buenos colores y acertado detalle de la planta. Por aquí hay bastantes Pardoglossum C. Supongo que el nombre es por el color algo más oscuro de las hojas y las flores.
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi

Hello Jose,

Hi Jose,
This has a unique look..Almost like a flower in Winter.
Excellent comp, color, & POV. Very good detail, and you managed the difficult exposure well.
Nice work,

You have done really well to manage to get a 6mm flower showing like this. there is so much to see on it.
