To be honest dear Anne I am not the biggest fen of flower photographs,perhaps may be I am struggling with creativity in this field, but here you have manage to present the beauty of the specie very well using good dept of field , lovely point of view and pleasant brightness. The intensity of the colors are very moderate and I love that wonderful camera control in your hands! Bravo my friend!

Bonsoir Anne,
A fine capture of two of the flowers of this southern species of Silene that is neaw to me.
Both flowers are set in a pleasing composition against a nice neutral BG that provides excellent contrast with the striking pink of the flowers. The sharpness and lighting add to the quality of this image.
Merci et bonne nuit!

Bonjour Anne,
Belle image colorée et lumineuse qui fait durer un peu temps. Les détails botaniques sont bien restitués et la composition très agréable.

Je suis très intéressé par ton travail sur la représentation des Borraginacées dans la peinture. Tu étudies une période particulière? J'imagine bien le Myosotis, mais suis curieux de connaître la deuxième espèce que tu as trouvée (Symphytum? Pulmonaria?). Je serais très heureux de lire ton article lorsque tu l'auras achevé.
Bon courage pour ce passionnant travail,

I love the colors of this flowers against lovely background, good image. The shape of the flowers petals are interesting. tfs.

hello Anne
beautiful coloured picture with good sharpness and details
greeting lou

Liebe Anne,
Beautiful colours and for creativity a flower ''gone over'' (verblueht), clever decision to include it!

The fine fluff proof of your perfect focus - and I like very much the layout of the image.

Is SILENE FLOS-JOVIS the same as ''Alpen Nelke''? I remember it with a pronounced cinnamon (Zimt) smell...

Thank you for showing this delicate plant. Herzliche Gruesse

Hola Anne.
Hermosas las florecillas que nos presentas hoy aqui, Los colores son muy bellos y el fondo difuso les da mas valor y nitidez.
Saludos Anne.

Good Morning Mother:)

A fine capture of these lovely flowers. You're getting good at creating a nice soft background in such kind of photos.
The Silene flower is sharp and properly exposed. The all-important background compliments it well. The tone/lighting gradients to the left yield to the nicely composed shot!
TFS and have a nice day!


Ciao Anne,
a prescindere dalle tue eccellenti capacità tecniche e dal tuo raffinato gusto fotografico, con le immagini di fiori esprimi sempre qualcosa che va al di là del semplice gusto estetico, c'è sempre sensibilità e delicatezza.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona giornata
Con amicizia

bonjour Anne
ces fleurs sont adorables, et j'adore la couleur rose vive des pétales, cela met une note de gaité dans la photo, un peu de soleil quand le ciel est gris dehors,
la présentation est superbe et les détails sont très nets
la fond uni et lisse met ces oeillets de dieu très bien en valeur
Passe une bonne nuit

Hallo Anne
Your valuable input to everybody on the site is always appreciated. Once again you share a beautiful image filled with cerise coloured flowers. I really envy you for this one as it is very beautiful and warmed my heart when I saw it. It is indeed a feast to the eye. I can only but imagine what pleasure it is, to see a view like this in person, as it is a more than a feast to me, sitting 1000's of kilometres away. Like always it was a pleasure stopping by your gallery. Thanks for sharing this lovely macro. Best regards.

Hy Anne
I missed this one! I did not know about this species. Very good close-up, showing the flowers with perfect details. Perfcet bg as well!
All the best
