Hello Christian,

a nice presentation from this flower.
Good pov, details and exposure.
Fine colours.
I have almost been made the seem picture past week.

Hi Christian,
ein wirklich gut gelungenes Bild. Die Perspektive gefällt mir sehr gut! Klasse!


Hello Chris, very nice Digitalis flovers. It's Turkish name is "yüksük otu".

Christian, I shot the same flowers in the mountains of India in a wld state in May this year. Frankly, I was surprised because I thought they were garden flowers grown in Europe. My guess was that British people brought them to India during their rule over our country in the 18th, 19th or 20th century.
Your picture of these bell shaped pink flowers is very beautiful.
I am specially fascinated by those patterns inside them.

Ciao Christian. Very good details and playing of ligt trought soft colours. Nice presentation.

Hello Christian,
A very nice presentation of the flowers of Digitalis, a rae species in the wild in my country.
The POV and composition are great to show the details of the flowers with fine sharpness and natural colours.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Christian,
excellent sharpness of these foxglove. how lovely to see the details inside.
Top class sharpness and the tight framing allowing scrutinising of details and features.
well composed with sharpness and clarity so well taken care of.


Hi Christian,
A spectacular close up of these vivid purple flowers.Good perspective has turned the flowers to be the first point of interest.Spot on exposure showing the unique internal patterns.Nicely presented.

Dear Christian,
An interesting plant - due to the presence of the cardiac glycoside digitoxin, the leaves, flowers and seeds of this plant are all poisonous to humans and some animals and can be fatal if eaten - and presented in an interesting way.

Digitalis pupurea does not grow in the wild in South Africa - at least not according to my Field Guides...

I like the layout of the image i.e. the inclusion of the sky adds interest.

The details of the inside of the flower are fascinating, and the natural colours a pleasure to view.

I wish you a nice week
Greetings from South Africa,
