Inflorescences bounced by the wind. Very common in country side adapted well to wet environments.

Hola Hernean,
Bella captura de esta floración!
Por acá es muy común ver esta flor como adorno en las casas, pero nunca la había visto en la planta.
Me gusta mucho la inclinación y la composición que armaste sobre el fondo azul.
Felicitaciones y gracias por compartir la foto.
Un gran saludo,

Hi Hernan,
Strong photo compositionwise.
Overall well done.

Hello Hernan,
Like Annick said, this is a strong composition with great colors, beautiful details and contrast. I like this natural exposure a lot. Well done!

Mi suegra las tenía en su jardín y las llama "plumachos".
Buenos detalles Hernán, precioso cielo.
Saludos, JL.

nice patterns great colors with the blue sky good focus

Hi Hernan,
These seed heads look wonderful against the clouds and blue sky. A very nice composition. We call them Pampas Grass in Australia and they are a declared weed, but they look great.

Hello Hernan,

Very fine and sharp textures. Not an easy task to photograph these things when wind blows (at least it look that blows, upon the inclination angle of the plants).
Great job.

Cheers, Petru

Hi Hernan,
Superb shot with natural colours and a amazing sharpness. Set against the blue sky it looks fantastic. Excellent POV. Not easy to get proper focus when the wind is blowing but your effort is really commendable. Wonderfully composed. Kudos.

Hola Hernán,
Bella imagen de estos cañizos, que me recuerdan mucho el río cerca del cual viví. Acertadísimo punto de vista contra un bello cielo.
Saludos cordiales,

Very nice composition with diagonal placement and the effect of wind is very well felt in spite of the fast exposure selected. Excellent selection of the background i.e. the blue sky!

Hi Hernan.
Bravo. I am impressed with your super creative subject. Idea and its realization are terrific. Great POV, amazing view, perfect DOF and great sharpness of all image. Shot is exposed (it is not so easy at your case) perfectly, colours are clear and rich, composition is outstanding. My congratulations and TFS.

Hello Hernan,
Great blue sky and clouds! Together with the fox tails, this is an relaxing beautiful composition! Very well seen and taken!

Hello Hernan
What beautiful textures, colour and patterns your Cortadeira selloana are showing. The deep blue sky makes a nice backdrop and compliment of colours. I get a very serene feeling for your soft whispy plant. Very pretty.
TFS Janice
