this is a very sharp photo. Good Background too...
'''Happy New Year !!'''
This is interesting, but your postprocessing is a bit too strong. It would be nice if you could post the original (perhaps as a workshop). That way, I'll show you a technique in photsohop that brings the focus merely on the flowers, and not just the center of the picture. Basically, you apply the blurring to the *entire* image and then use the history brush to selectively undo the blurring on just the flowers.
This is certainly a beautiful and clear picture. It's a pity the wing in the reflection is cropped...
Nice Picture; although, I think it could do well with some more contrast. Also, I didn't get the title - who's "luks"?
canon lenses are perfect
You should send such pictures to magazines - I can see it on the cover of natl geographic!!
Darun photo! I think the background is fantastic, and makes the feathers stand out. (Is that because of your phenomenal canon equipment?)
I have no idea why noone has commented on such a beautiful photo. I think the lighting is perfect (although you might have placed a vignette on it).
Did you use a flash?
I may not be a genius at taxonomy, but that flower looks like a Dianthus chinensis to me, not a Gazania.
But, photograph-wise, the background is nicely out of focus, and there is minimal blurring. However, it would have been much better if you had stepped back a bit and included the entire flower (and perhaps others out of focus)...
