C'est un merveilleux macro et les couleurs de ces fleurs sont très jolies ,les détails et la composition sont supers.

Merci et au revoir....JP

Bonjour Anne,
I see why this variety of flower is your favorite. The soft hairs that live on their stalks and petals offer the softness that we dream of flowers to be. You captured the light so perfectly the colors just seem to relax you when you sit down and really look at their curving forms. But why are most of the beautiful flowers, plants, etc. poisonous? Just seems to be wrong in some way or another. Is there a medical benefit such as treatment or medicine made from this plant?
Beautiful image Anne,

Ciao Anne,
una fantastica macro, straordinaria definizione con dettagli incredibili, i colori sono allo stesso tempo delicati e "prorompenti", come sempre una composizione molto armoniosa ed elegante.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona giornata
Con amiciiza

Very interesting looking flowers with fine colors of petals and stamens. Would like to see a better image of these lovely flowers. tfs.

Liebe Anne!

Ich muss dieses wunderbare Bild meiner Lieblingsblume, die ich so noch nie habe fotografieren können, in meine Favoriten aufnehmen. Dein Bild gefällt mir so sehr! Herrliches Lichtspiel, wunderbare Farben und perfekte Schärfe... aber am wichtigsten ist die angenehme Wirkung des Bilds, ganz einfach weil es schön ist...



Liebe Anne,
wie Du weisst, halte ich mich sonst bei Blumenbildern nicht auf, aber das Lichtspiel hier ist ja schon im Thumbnail aufregend. Du hast noch Meisterwerke in Deinen Konserven.

herzlich grüsst Dich

Bonjour Anne,
Revoilà, pour mon plus grand plaisir, tes superbes anémones pulsatilles annonciatrices du printemps.
Je ne peux qu'admirer (et jalouser) ta parfaite technique et ton sens artistique dans la restitution de cette espèce.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
