[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Once more playing with macro and spring flowers.
Thanks to Ferran I can tell you the ID of this small flower (it has less than 1 cm in diameter). It is Stellaria media.
Some technical things about post-processing:
1. removing noise with NeatImage
2. cropping
3. changing levels to get higher contrast
4. sharpening.
Hope you like it.

Hi Ania,
Pretty Stellaria media, very good macro.

Witaj Aniu,
Z ID to mam problem ale nie mam problemu ze stwierdzeniem, ze to bardzo dobre makro. Podobaja mi sie kolory a także cos w rodzaju perspektywy jaką otrzymalas patrzac wzdluz lodygi w kierunku podstawy kwiatka.

Hi Ania,
Wonderful macro shot of this tiny flower. Very neat and sharp image with clear details and nice colours. It literally pops out from the screen. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Kudos.

Hi Ania.
Simply great close-up picture. Captured subject is so wonderful as quality of the image. Superb DOF, amazing passages from crisp sharpness to nice blurriness. Colour palette and soft lighting are fine too. Bravo. Perfect job.

Hello Ania. I always like small white flowers and this is really unique in loose fragile petals. Superb sharpness of the image in a well muted background. I like it and best regards. Jusni

Hello Ania.
I especially like how the depth of field gives it a 3D appearance. Normally this might be a sight I would pass on in my day, but seeing it like this makes it so beautiful.

Piękne, miękkie kolorki i ciekawy kwiat, świetna ostrość detali, ciekawa kompozycja.

What I said in my appraisal of your previous picture holds good here too, Ania.
This capture is ornamental; you have seen this flower and its components as something that would find your approval if you had to design an ornament with similar patterns and colours for, let's say, a woman's earlobes.
Technically, you have captured a very good macro with your curious camera settings -- big aperture and 1/30 of exposure.
Well done and keep shooting!

Hola Ania, preciosa composición, la seleccion de enfoque me gusta, muy buena luz y color. Un saludo
