Ciao Paul, splendid light on delicate flowers, great contrast aginst dark BG, excellent sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

These lovely blue-tinted flowers have been my favourites for shooting Hoverflies on them in the spring season in India, Paul.
There are quite a few pictures of them I have posted on TN when I was living in Noida near New Delhi.
They look amazingly beautiful in this shot you took with long exposure. The shades of blue have turned out to be very attractive in this tripod-mounted shot.
Thanks for sharing this beauty.

Hello Paul,
superb sharpness in excellent softness. The colors are lovely and pleasant. The dark background make it more exciting and lively.
Well composed shot.


Gracias por tua amables comentarios Paul.
Tu foto interesante, sobre todo por ese excelente trabajo con la luz.

Hello Paul.

Thank you for that picture of the "Blue Creeper Flower", alias Plumbago.

The composition is quite good ; nevertheless, in my opinion, it would have been better to cut the bottom of the photo and to have a square frame.
The point of view is good and show us many details of the flowers, from the face and from the side, which is more or less characteristic.
The sharpness is excellent.
The depth of field is good and the black background is well adapted to the photo.
The colours and contrast are natural.

Thank you for the sharing. See you soon on trek nature for other pictures.

All the best.

Hi Paul!
Beautiful floral composition (sorry, I don't know its name). I like the great contrast against the black BG and the magic light. Excellent details.
ciao! Vanda
