Hi Mario,

I have never seen a blue poppy and this one is beautiful. I love the way the petals are blowing and the water droplets. Excellent colors, details, and background. Wonderful composition.

Wow! I have the same lens and basically the same camera, but I am not sure I could get a shot as sharp as this. It is magnificent.

Hi Mario, this is no snapshot. I see a lot of passion for the art in this shot. Your positioning and composition was very well thought out and planned, with perfect light control over the open flower and those great drops of water. Depth of field was textbook. Your post processing for the final presentation was up to the shot with an excellent control of light throughout, crop and positioning of the flower and a very tasteful frame to tie it all together. I have had a good lesson here today.

Thanks, John

Well composed with a nice POV.

Hi Mario,
This is a wonderful poppy species I've never seen before. The blue color is extrodinary. Superb work on the DOF and sharpness. The details and exposure are superb. I love the contrast between the blue and orange.

Salut Mario,
Merci pour ton support.
Une superbe photo ici. Les détails sont très bien rendus. Les couleurs sont très belles.

J'ai une question : est-ce qu'on perd les points accumulés lorsqu'on re-poste une photo? ce matin j'ai posté «remember last summer» et je ne suis pas satisfait. Habituellement je travaille mes photos sur mon écran à la maison ce qui donne les résultats attendus. Cependant ce matin j'ai travaillé ma photo au bureau (avant les heures d'ouverture bien sûr :-) ) Mais le résultat n'est pas à la haueur de mes attentes... Donc j'aurais le goût de la re-poster mais j'aimerais garder les points qui y étaient attribués... J'attend ta réponse

Merci,

Claude

Hello Mario
I just have seen this picture of yours in the front page and I am astonished with its beauty and magnificent details. What a curious and marvellous Poppy! I love the color and texture with excellent lighting and very good bg.
A great job!
Greetings
Maite

I'll be back with points :)

Re bonjour Mario,
Du coup, je me régale encore avec votre galerie ici. Et je m'arrête sur ce drôle d'oiseau. Ah, oui, fascinant par ses couleurs, mais, ah oui, bien difficile de culture; mes tentatives ont été autant d'échecs ! cette photo est splendide !
Antoine.

Hello Mario.

Excellent flower. very good details and colors.

Regards.
Jose Luis.
