Definitelly one of most beautifull flowers from our forests. Lovely colours and light, great 3D effect and composition. Fascinating, that name of this flower has got same meaning in many languages [at least English, Polish, Russian, Slovak, Bulgarian...]

bellissima composizione floreale, eccellente POV e ottima gestione della luce, buona definizione dei dettagli, splendidi colori.
Grazie e complimenti.
I have noticed that you were not around for some time and from time to time checked in to see if you posted something new, but then I saw it was still "Steamin' In For Dinner" lying last in your portfolio. Sorry I did not realise you were ill, but I am glad to hear that you are better now and I hope all is well.
This "Blue Eyes" looks great and you managed a good range in the DOF to capture all the details just fine. The composition also has good sense of scale and positioning.
Well done and TFS.

I am simply a sicker for this colour of blue. Period. End of story...well...actually I don't like them when they're dead...That's about it...oh yes and before they bloom but that's it...oh I and don't like people who don't like blue:-) Just kidding..Fantastic frame full of image Silke! You should called it Tour de' Force instead of Silke!

Hi Silke - a wonderful bouquet. I have always seen these flowers around, but until you look really close at them (and with a camera) you don't see how really beautiful each tiny flower is.
Pretty blue and especially with the light shining on them

What a wonderful presntation of these tiny blue forget-me-nots!
I like their interaction with the broad leaf: encircling it, peeping from behind it!
The details are nice and sharp with a perfect dof.

Ok, so I've been panting over on TL for blue flowers with a long extensive discussion with another southern belle, who will remain nameless, about blue flowers and I find you hiding them over here! LOL!... This is quality stuff, you might do best to share some of this with those of us who appreciate your talent... B-)
Now for the pic...FABULOUS smoothness to the flowers, excellent details and the DOF is to die for! How can it get better?... it could be posted where I'll see it! LOL!

Hello Silke. Thanks for the encouragement in my TL account. I can see some of our good friends and excellent photographers suffered the same fate or even worse than me here in TN.
The shot here is stunning in tall frame. I like the glow and the perfectly metered shot in bringing out the best of the composition. Well done and best regards. Jusni

a very pleasantly appealing picture that is showing plenty of those lovely Vergissmeinnicht blossoms and is yet so clearly and neatly well composed. Outstandlingly well controlled blue colours in those hard to control freckles of light and shadow that look very airy and beautiful.
With thanks, and my best regards,
