On the one hand, this flower looks like a delicate soft one, but it also looks like one that can hurt you. Those thorns look pretty sharp.
I like the shining glow and the clarity in this photo. The fact that you showed us the bottom of the flower is very interesting.

Hola José Miguel,
Pues por fin conozco como lucen las famosas Borrajas!
Me gusta mucho el punto de vista y la inclusión de los texturados tallos.
Muy bueno el contraste de los suaves tonos del azul, rosado y el verde del fondo.
Que bueno verte de nuevo por aca, y gracias por colgar la foto.
Un gran saludo,

This is obviously the most natural angle to look at these beautiful flowers. They are always facing down.
Sharp, well composed, and perfectly exposed close-up.
Thanks for sharing.

What a sweet subject and fantastic reproduction of all its details and features. I am impressed with tiny hairs, great DOF and terrific beautiful colours. Framing and composition are brilliant too. Thanks for nice WS. Both pictures give the conception of the beauty of this plant. My greetings and TFS. Well done.
Splendid image. Totally different to what we are used to. Focus is super, point of view is super, detail is super +++, depth of field is super. Really a stunning image. The fine hairs especially on the unopened blossoms adds a special touch to this remarkable photo. Lovely bright colour of the flower. I appreciated this one tremendously. Thanks for sharing.

Outstanding shot of this beautiful "Starflower" with amazing details and lovely colours. Immaculate sharpness and each bristle is clear and distinct. Superb lighting and exposure management and I like your chosen POV to portray it. A marvellous composition. Kudos.

Hello José M,
Superb details have been captured in this outstanding specimen!
The hairy stems come out very well, and the blue of the petals is well reproduced...
A fine composition, where the DOF isolates the subject well against the background!

I have been missing your great wild flower pictures, so I looked for you and found this wonderful image of a Star flower.
This picture has all the qualities you excel in, namely, great focus, delicate colour presentation and imaginative composition.
It has been a pleasure to look at this beautiful picture.
Regards and hope you are keeping well.

Both the original and the detailed images are worth individual postings. I very much like the POV from above to give the underside view of the hanging flowers of this Borage. This shows excellent sharpness and detail of the flower and stems and the colours and exposure to my mind are excellent, as are the composition and presentation.
This posting deserves more credit and thanks for sharing it,
Un gran saludo,

wonderful presentation of that fresh hairy borago and its exquisitely pale blue blossom - seen from behind, and radiating like a star. I like the wealth of details and the elegant composition. Thank you!
My best regards,

Intéressante présentation de cette bourrache bien poilue avec sa belle forme en étoile. J'ai toujours pensé qu'elle était une plante d'origine européenne. L'expression "acabar en agua de borrajas" est bien amusante.

What a blue, wonderful flower! I have not seen this species before (or at least - I not not remember :>). I like very unique and original POV - flower is showed from "different" that typical side. Sharpness and DOF are very good (really as always in your botanical presentation). Moreover, once again I found something new for me in the note.
All the best!

I'm not sure but I think I may have seen this flower in 5 stars restaurants here (I might be mistaken tough)... I prefer to see it alive like in this beautiful picture! What an excellent composition with superb colors, excellent details and exposure. Thanks for those interesting and well documented notes :)!

Hello Jose !
I know this flowers, some people are growing it in gardens and it's excellent with salad, I didn't know it was growing in the wild too, but well, that's what I like on TN, each day I learn something new. The details are amazing, each little hair is sharp. The blue color of the flower is wonderful too, as well as the composition, the POV and the light. Very well done !

Great image Jose, I like it.
The detail is outstanding, as well as the color, light, and composition. I also like this POV which appears to be from the backside (but is not), showing the flowers unique structure famously :)
