Very nice close up - very good colours, contrast and sharpness, congratulations - remembers more Centaurea cyanus than Centaurea montana. TFS Hans

beautiful pic, no need for the frame, TFS Ori

Hello Gerard,

A very bright and sharp capture of the cornflower. I like how it is possible to clearly see the pinky/purple centre.

When you are presenting your shots, it is usually better to have your main image off-centre. Imagine your frame in thirds and aim to have the image's centre on one of those lines. This will definitely improve its impact!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Ciao Gerard, splendid macro of superb centaurea with wonderful colors, great sharpness and perfect focus, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Gerard,
this one so lovely. Beautiful blue and in its isolation.
sharp and clear.
Excellent capture.


Lovely cornflower perfectly captured - nothing superfluous.
