Capparis spinosa

Last year I took a photo of this plant early in the morning, resulting in a bluish colour. This year I've used the soft and warm light in the evening. I hope you find it better.
Please, see notes in the previous post to read about this plant.

Wow! that is simply exquisite, Jose! the details are astounding and the background is just out of focus enough not to distract but still show some detail of the leaves and branches. Superb work!

Hello Jose,
I love capers and it is the first time that I see the plant!!! I could eat capers at a spoon; I'm really mad about it. This is a very nice capture of this flower with great details, natural exposure and beautiful colors. Thanks for sharing this picture. Next time I eat capers, I'll know where it is coming from :)

Preciosos detalles por la gran profundidad que has conseguido de la bella flor de la alcaparra. Buenos detalles del fondo donde se entrevé un fruto cuajado y quizás un par de espinas. Lindo color y bonito lio de estambres y pistilos. ( Tienes buena vista, mi araña sí que realizaba reparaciones de importancia:::)

Saludos José

Bonjour Jose,
Bravo pour cette très belle image, avec une profondeur de champs bien étudiée pour restituer l'exubérance des étamines. L'éclairage est parfait et met en valeur la délicatesse de la fleur du caprier. C'est intéressant d'apercevoir le feuillage à l'arrière plan.
Amicalement,
Hervé

Hola José Miguel,
Muy buenos los detalles captados!
Me gusta mucho como lucen los delicados estambres, ordenados todos ellos siguiento un ritmo muy armonioso.
Un delicado tratamiento para esta bella flor.
Buen trabajo y gracias por mostrarnoslo.
Un gran saludo,
JM

Bonita flor de la alcaparra.
Sigo en lucha con mi LP, pero parece que voy perdiendo...

Bonjour Jose,
Voilà encore une image délicate, mais pourvue d'une grande luminosité. Pas facile d'avoir toute ces étamines dansant autour du pistil dans le focus. Bravo.
Bonne journée

bonjour josé
peu etre qu'un peu plus de profondeur aurait permis d'avoir la totalité des etamines bien nette comme les premieres mais cela reste une belle photo.

Very elegant shot, revealing the perfect beauty of this useful plant. Great photo.

Sólo te faltaba esta foto para tener la ficha completisima de la alcaparra. Me gusta mucho, de verdad. La exposicion es perfecta, la profundidad de campo incluyendo todos los estambles muy agradable, y el fondo montrando el verde olivaceo de la planta en su punto.
Gracias y un saludo, Felipe.

Hola josé, buen tiro a una flor elegante y hermosa, muy bella y nitida ... Sira

Dear José,
a caper blossom of midsummer with perfect details, delicious tender colour in delightfully soft light, perfectly well balanced composition. A very aesthetical portrait of a flower, once more from you.
Thank you! My best regards,
Peter

Lovely soft light & color Jose, nice.
Well composed frame. Great details, and DOF, separating your subject from the BG..
The BG also serves to form an OOF natural border that works well :)
Very well done.
