Salut Gérard,
Tes MYOSOTIS sont très charmants et ils ont un beau ton bleu, la couleur que j´aime beaucoup.Mais je pense que ta photo serait mieux sans la partie droite de celle-ci. Ça n´as pas bien marché,
dans mon point de vue, car ils semblent diferent du rest de la photo, surtout la petite chenille et la fleur à droit.
Bon w-end et un grand merci pour ton dernier comments.C´est gentil!
Gros bisous,
aNa

Bonjour Gérard,
Très belle publication, comme tu as l'habitude de l'écrire ;-. J'aime beaucoup ce petit jardin naturel, comme on en trouve heureusement encore dans les régions alpines. Ici, le Myosotos avec son magnifique bleu ne peut que ravir nos yeux. Et la petite chenille ajoute au charme de l'image.
Un cadrage qui me plaît beaucoup aussi.
Bonne fin de semaine
Amicalement

Hello Gérard,

This little alpine flower has a beauty of its own, characterized by the strong and vivid blue colour!
This is a fine framing to present the flower in its rightful setting, close to ground and hiding between some rocks...
A fine colour palette, sharp fine details in the main subject(s)..!

Greetings,
