Hello All

I dedicate this post to Gert (Gert-Paassen ), when i saw this shot in my archives, i am thinking at him, it looks like so many images from him

it's for you Gert, for all your nice critique on my humble shots and for all your beautiful pictures here on TN and for your friendship

there are a bit noise in the BG but i hope you like it

i am not a specialist in flowers , but i think it is a Cardamine pratensis, let's me know when i am wrong

Cardamine pratensis
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


It is herbaceous perennial plant growing to 40-60 cm tall, with pinnate leaves 5-12 cm long with 3-15 leaflets, each leaflet about 1 cm long. The flowers are produced on a spike 10-30 cm long, each flower 1-2 cm diameter with four pale pink (rarely white) petals. It grows best close to water.

It is grown as an ornamental plant in gardens, and has as a result of cultivation become naturalised in North America. In some European countries the plant is now under threat ( e.g. parts of Germany). It is a food plant for the orange tip butterfly (Anthocharis cardamines) and makes a valuable addition to any garden which aims at attracting wildlife. It was once used as a substitute for Watercress.


In folklore it was said to be sacred to the fairies, and so was unlucky if brought indoors. It was not included in May day garlands for the same reason.

Hi Jacqueline.
What a nice presentation of the charming flowers. I like great use of large aperture value and precise DOF. Flowers and buds are sharpened perfectly and surroundings are blurred greatly. Some shadows on the blossoming flower against the sunlight on the few petals are great point. My compliments and best regards. Well done.

Hello Dear Jaqueline,

Thanks for the dedication, yes it is that specie.
The orange tip are legging their eggs on this flower.
Very good pov and detailed with blurred bg.
Fine natural colours.

Thanks for your kind words in your note.

Hi Jacqueline. I am sure Gert will like this picture of the flower.
You have taken this with fine detail and sharp focusing. I like the way the like is just catching the right hand side of the flower. Which has such natural colours. The have a pastel look about them, Well taken TFS.

A great dedication to our friend, Gert!
I like the soft and tender flower here with superb clarity. The sharpness is crisp and the POV is perfect. The blurry BG adds another piece of beauty to the capture.

Then I look at date taken hehehe...
Great details in bud and blossoming flower, elegant simplicity shows nature at its best...
Good colours and details!

Merhaba Jacqueline,
harika bir kompozisyon; renkler, netlik ve pozlama çok güzel olmuş.
Tebrik ederim, sevgilerle..

Bonsoir Jacqueline.

Bravo pour cette photographie de Cardamine. Excellent composition du cliché, avec une fleur semblant émerger du sol. Bonne netteté de la fleur elle même, avec de belles couleurs et un bon contraste.

Merci pour le partage.

Bonne soirée et à bientôt.

Hi Jacqueline,
Great close up showing some unique soft colouring of the flower. Nice POV, well done and TFS.

Ciao Jacqueline, elegant composition with beautiful flower, splendid blurry BG, wonderful light and colors, I like a lot, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Jacqueline,
very pleasant soft light, elegant composition, perfect focus on the flower's main parts. Beautiful to see a beam of direct ight touching just the clearly focussed top of the flower, while stem and leaves gadually are disappear in the softness of distance. A very nice, artistically well made presentation to Gerd.
With thanks, and best regards,

Hello Jacqueline,
A superb simple and well composed capture of the flowers of Cardamine pratensis. You are right the style is that of our friend Gert Paassen and it is a nice tribute to him.
Excellent lighting, BG and DOF too.
Thanks and best wishes,

When I first saw the thumbnail I wrongly assumed that the flower was a bit soft; I WAS WRONG!!!
Infact it is EXTREMELY well focused.
The clarity is of EXCELLENT quality.
A lovely dedication.
Mario from the COLD with greetings.

Chère Jacqueline!

Tu nous présentes une image toute simple et très plaisante qui plaît principalement par les couleurs et la lumière. En ce qui concerne la composition, je trouve un peu dommage que la fleur elle-même, sujet principa de l'image, soit un peu perdu dans le haut de l'image ce qui crée un vide sur une grande partie.

Bonnes salutations

Hi Jacqueline,
very special shot in great effect. The shallow depth really make this flower render an powerful visual impact.
Well captured with great skills.

Hello Jacqueline,
You post a pretty little flower that I'm not familiar with. You have captured it's beauty extremely well in this nicely composed image. Love the single bloom surrounded by the tiny purplish buds. Good DOF and fine detail make this a wonderful photo for all to enjoy viewing.

Hi Jacqueline,
diese zarte Blüte ist wunderhübsch.
Ist das Wiesenschaumkraut? Sieht so aus, gefällt mir sehr.
Herzlichen Dank für die Erinnerung an die warmen Tage, jetzt wird's Winter, brrrrrr.

Hallo Jacqueline
Now this is my cup of tea and exactly what the doctor has ordered for today. This image has such a lot that I personally fancy and appreciate in a photo. The colours is wonderful and the unopened flower buds softness my heart in a flash. The opened flower in all its splendour is soft on the eye, and the fine lining inside the petals is very catching. In my eyes, this is a very special image. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Bonjour Jacqueline
Merci pour cette prise de vue délicate : simple et naturelle.

Many thanks for adding my Stilt to your favourites!

Hi Jacqueline,
You show this delicate flower beautifully. The soft sunlight on the petals and soft background make the flower stands out. Very well done.
