good shot! you've captured these wood anemones well, your exposure is spot on :) if i were to suggest anything - compositionally i'd prefer it if you could have framed it without any cropped flowers, but i know from experience that it's tricky. post process wise, i'd be tempted to run shadows/highlights in photoshop to enhance the detail of the whites of the flowers (s:0 h:20 maybe?). anyway, very nicely captured :-D

Very nice ! I love these flowers, but in France it's over this year. Good details and very natural colors. I agree with Adrian, there should be no cropped flowers, but I also know how difficult it is to do it. :-) Well done !

I find wood anemones beautiful but difficult to photograph. Because of petals very white and shadows very black. I posted a pic last week. Interesting for me to see to you manage well with a very different POV than mine.
A pity than one flower is damage and a couple of them are soft, but I don't mind much.

Well done on the wood anemone!
Good framing, and you keep very good details even in the difficult white petals...
I posted one myself a couple of days ago but I did the opposite...
Very pleasant image!

Really nice composition with some of the flowers making diagonal lines into the picture.
Exposure seems spot on. Quite a narrow DOF, I don't think it spoils it, though.
