[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We are in winter now but a few shrubs are flowering, triggered by the seasonal rains. The Holly-leaved Hovea (Hovea chorizoma) is small, up to 30cm tall only, but difficult to miss with its bright deep blue-purple ‘pea’ flowers and prickly leaves. It grows in the woodlands, from deep litter to gravel.

Hello Odile,
Beautiful macro in gorgeous light, fine colours with a nice contrasting background. Excellent sharpness and an attractive diagonal composition.

  • Great

Hi Odile,

Splendid macro of the flower, I like very much the color.
Great effect of light and shadows, F/G and B/G are very nice for the composition.
My best regards.

Hi Odile,a very nice plant not often seen on TN,excellent capture with a perfect purple and good detail too,the light too is very magic.Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Bonjour Odile,
Une belle macro valorisant relativement bien le sujet, malgré un cadrage trop serrée, dans une belle lumière et sous une bonne profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Odil

Very beautiful image of this planr in adiagonal align, very nice bokeh and lighting, nice POV and composition



Hermosa composición. La hovea chorizoma ha sido captada con gran detalle y una excelente exposición. Siempre digo que sacar fotos a flores y plantas es mucho mas dificil que hacerlo con animales. Felicitaciones.
