Hello everybody!
Well, this pic is not the best of this season, but I really like how the black back and the golden flower are situated in the pic.

The shot was casual, I was not looking for something special, just the image. So the technic is not ideal.

There are some spiders web shining with the sun at the left part, and the right part is out of focus.

Im very sorry because I dont know the name of the plant. The only thing I can tell you is that some people use it as a medicine, like a tea for "those days" when it has its flowers.
The flowers are white, and some times pink. Its about 50cm tall, and the flowers are very very small, in packeges.

Hope you like it!

Hi Brenda,
Nicely seen...I like the way you placed the flower head at the diagonal and focused sharply on the individuals in the front....although the background is well blurred, I think it is a bit too dark....my first look at the picture draws my eye to the back and only then do I look at the flower. Still, a nice composition.


Hola Brenda.
Una idea de composicin muy interesante, sabes de que especie se trata?

Hi Brenda!

It's a good try of macro phtography. I like the diagonal composition and the color tones. The bright parts of the flower contrast well with the dark background. From my point of view, your picture lacks a bit of sharpness. I also notice this on some other pictures. But the overall impression is fine.

Kind regards

By this view you need much DOF and you should have try this FACE to FACE and that could bring more of its charm, TFS.

Very nice shot Brenda...

I like the way you controlled the DOF, and how the distant flower meld into a warm glow.
