Bonjour Silvio,
Ces moissons accompagnées des coquelicots, bleuets et autres "mauvaises" herbes sont magnifiques et hélas devenues tellement rares dans ma région... Herueux de voir qu'il en existe encore en bon état.

Hi Silvio, what a lovely shot of these vibrant flowers. I love the POV and perspective trailing off to the distance. A myriad of colour! An inspiration.

Fantástica vista. Colores hermosos Silvio.

Hello Silvio,

There are some problems IMHO with that picture:

a) The horizon line is too high (should be at 1/3 of the image)

b) Noise too present in the image;

c) The colors looks so saturated in my monitor...

But I should say that that field looks great :-)



Excellent coloured presentation Sivio. Well done. Parades. tfs.

Ciao Silvio,

Nice mixture of colors.
Well captured.
Very nice shot.


Hello Silvio
Fantastic landscape
Perfect compo and colors,


Hi Silvio what lovely colours the saturation is very nicely ajusted and makes it look like a creative painting like a Monet :-) composed perfectly well done best rgds Necip

Ciao Sylvio!
This looks like a sea of colors!
It's amazing the way when going back in the image, the red and blues of the flowers mixes to produce a purple color. Great effect!
The mountains at the back gives us a sense of depth and the real scale.
I like very much this colorful composition.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Silvio,
It's magnificent scane.Well caught,framed and composed.Looks like a painting.Excellent work!

A pleasant capture of wild poppies and other blue flowers, Silvio.

OH!!!!joli champ.
j'aime beaucoup le melange des couleurs.
bleu rouge et vert,il me semble qu'un televiseur est constitué de ces même couleurs.
bien vu.

Silvio ciao! What a colourful surprise!

To heck with conventions < 1/3rd of what? Focus? Which flower?> I actually like to see a tighter crop and just admire that mass of wildflowers! In this case natural colour and profusion is more important than any techie rules to convey the beauty in this image of a limitless flowerfield . Ergo remove the sky. Etc. See attached. Hope you like, tfs this colourful gay vista! JAy

Ciao Silvio,
Bella foto, mi piace come si vedono in perspettiva i papaveri e gli altri fiori blu.
Le manca un pò di nitidezza ma penso che è interessante.

Les touches de couleurs des coquelicots donnent un aspect intéressant à la photo.
Bonne journée.

Ciao Silvio

What a lovely field of colorful "dots"!
It's wonderful to see such vast landscapes untouched by human hand.
I really like the colors here are the very good exposure.
Nice composition and DOF, too.
A bit soft on the details, but still a nice post.

Bravo and TFS

Bellissima fotografia!
I colori sono molto belli e vivaci!

ogni volta che guardo le tue foto faccio molta fatica a scglierne una, molti complimenti per questo scenario puntellato di colori, una profondità di campo eccezionale

Wonderful image Silvio. I have taken some shots of poppy fields myself and I know how difficult can be to convey the sea of colours without it all merging into one and losing detail. You have managed that successfully here.

Hello Silvio,
thanks for liking my gram blue shot. I believe the splashing red colours really attract viewers.
This field of poppy is really stunning with the blue flowers.The perspective and wide horizon is really brilliant.Great mountain view too.
Excellent shot to be shared.


Olá Silvio,
um belo campo florido esse, além da bela cena, gostei do modo como tratou a imagem, ficou parecendo uma pintura. Ótimas cores.
Parabéns e Abraço

Ciao Silvio,
What a delight to see you here and with my favourite subject-your photos of Castellucio.
I would very much like to meet up with your group next year.
A wonderful carpet of flowers with a superb POV and contrasting colours.
A real treat!
Have a good weekend, Joni

Hi Silvio, What a beauty shot of this heaven on earth flower field. I love landscapes and would love to see more.... you're so lucky to have access to these beauties every year, congrats on fantastic, colorful capture. The rugged BG in the distance makes this picture even more remarkable. Great color! Awesome pic, Thanks for sharing.

Hello Silvio,

Beautiful impressio work with fantastic colours!!!

Best regards, Leonid

Tudo bem Silvio?

Espetacular, uma aquarela de cores, de cair o queixo.

Um abraço

Hi Silvio...

beautifull landscape with colorfull flowers,
i like red color,
Miss Saima

Hi Silvio,
I love your meadow: the details of the blue cornflowers and red poppies sprinkled with a few white Margueritas make it a colourful carpet.
I have just one little problem. On the top part of the photo, on the right:
is this a mountain - which should be grey/palegreen?
- with some trees - which should be darkgreen?
It looks quite unnatural, and whatever colour adjustments you made to the the photo, somehow you overlooked the colour of the mountain...
Kind Regards

Great and wonderful field, the blue and red colors look great, forming a good contrast. Good view, congratulations!

Hi Silvio,
outstanding meadow - beautiful natural colours. Now, during autumn it's very pleasant to see such pictures. Congratulations,

Hi Silvio:

Beautiful Millefleur landscape you have composed here. The juxtaposed red & blue in a field of green really make this an outstanding image. A real pleasure for the eye!

Kind regards,


Hi Silvio. What I like about this is the focus is only on the purple flowers. That leaves the red flowers in the background and the ones in the foreground slightly out of focus. It's a very beautiful affect. You framed it well to the horizon. I also like the lighting in the whole picture. A very good photograph Silvio. Very good eye. I love it. TFS Trevor

Hi Silvio, Thank for leaving me criticism on the picture Mallard. It is very supportive of you to me and you are always very generous to express your opinions on the new members' photos to make them feel welcomed and comfortable in this piece of land (TN). Thank very much once again.

For this picture of you. I like the red flowers in the FG. I specially interesting in the numerous red flowers in the BG because they look like a lot of red butterflies flying in the field. Very vivid image with simple composition and yet it brings out the fragrant of the grass and the flowers. Thank for sharing

** Salam Silvio ,

This is an excellent image in your gallery,
excelent landscape hunted with your camera

in 2001 ,

good contrast , nice sharpness , excellent
colours ,

Merry Christmas And Have A Prosperous New Year, Silvio. Have A Nice Day Tomorrow. Beautiful landscape with beautiful colored flowers. Regards - Srikumar
