Hi Anne

Wow, this capture is so well done of these absolutely beautiful little flowers.

You managed the exposure superbly to gain such amazing contrasts on the pure white petals and inner parts of the flowers. The details are perfect and as sharp as can be, the colours are natural, the dark BG is complimentary, and the composition is well balanced. I just love it.

Great work and TFS.

Diese Details sind bezaubernd, wundervoll!
Hi Anne, welch Schönheit, diese Blüten sind mit kleinen Perlchen bestückt, die funkeln und glänzen im Sonnenschein, es ist einfach toll.
Vielen Dank und herzlichen Gruß

Bonjour Anne,
Cela me fait plaisir d'admirer votre jolie photo pour plusieurs raisons, parce que ce cliché me plait et parce qu'il y a longtemps que je n'ai pas recroisé ces petites fleurs dans mes balades. J'en ai une sur mon site mais je n'arrive plus à me rappeler où je l'avais capté...
Compliments et merci pour le partage.

Hello Anne,

Wow!!! Excellent mastering of exposition letting us see the great details of the flowers (not easy with white and yellow!). Excellent choice also of aperture with this little f/16 letting us see both flowers in focus and the blurred bg! I like also the composition with both flowers having a little tendency to the right...

Great pic and TFS!!!

Hola Anne.
Magnifica foto, muy buena la composicion,Un saludo.

Bonjour Anel,
Tu as réussi une très belle photo de ces magnifiques fleurs. La lumière est bien maîtrisée et met en relief tous les détails : nervures des pétales, étamines fertiles et étamines styériles avec leurs jolies petites glandes jaunes. C'est un fleur que j'aime beaucoup, mais que je vois rarement dans ma région, où il fait trop chaud et sec...

Hello Anne.

Excellent macro, nice composition .
Very good details and colors.

Un joli duo dont les détails sont parfaitement visibles.
Bon dimanche.

Hi Anne

What a stunning photo of these flowers. I know it as Grass Of Parnassus. I met them for the first time last week in the Orkney Islands where they grow at sea level on peat cliff tops only 15m or so above sea level where they were rarely more than 5-7.5cm high.

But the quality of what I took is nothing compared to yours. They are simply stunning. The detail is staggering... composition is superb and so very clear.

Where you using the F/2.8 100mm macro lens?


Hi Anne,

Your Parnassia looks super! You have catured it very very well. Light and details are on the petals are impressive. Bravo and TFS.

Hi, dear Anne.
Now I live in the country without Internet and have missed amazing series of your new pictures. I'll correct my mistake step by step.

Beautifulness of this shot, its delicateness and elegance is simply fantastic. Reproduction of the beauty of the flowers are outstanding. Terrific details and lighting, reflection of the flower texture and colours, nice damped down BG and great composition. Bravo and my congratulations.

Hi Anne,
Very good macro work with sharp focus.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Anne,
a beautiful pair in excellent whitish. Great use of incoming light hitting the petals showing the clarity of the stamen.
Lovely and sharp flowers well presented.
