Bonjour Christian,
Superbe photo avec des couleurs splendides, dont ce bleu turquoise et une lumière superbe très bien maîtrisée. La netteté des fleurs, contrastant avec le flou de l'arrière-plan est impeccable. Du beau travail. Amitiés,

Wonderful shot of these beautiful flowers and I like the contrastig colours. Very impressive sharpness and details and the bright natural light was put to good use here. Interesting shape and curls. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Kudos.

Hello Taz, this is a beauty. What unusual colours, and I love seeing how they change as they age. Do they have a scent like the cultivated "Sweet Peas" we grow in our gardens have?
I hope all is going well for you. . .

Bonsoir Christian,
Une magnifique palette de tons pastels sur fond vert. Comme toujours très bien photographié et très bel effet de lumière. Ces plantes, je ne les connaissais pas ou j'ai omis de les voir.
Un grand merci et avec l'espoir que tes soucis s'aménuisent un peu.
Bonne soirée

Bonjour Christian,
Ta photo montre très bien la variabilité de couleur de Lathyrus vernus, dont les fleurs passent du rôse au bleu. Le cadrage est parfait, la complémentarité des couleurs très agréable.

Hi Christian,

Hi Christion

This spring peas are absolutely beautiful with the colour variations running through from cyan, to lilac, to pink. Can't think that I have ever seen this before.

A wonderful capture and stunningly presented with the OOF and isolated BG that is so evenly coloured green setting of a great contrast against the flowers. The colours are well saturated and the exposure was spot-on which provided a sunny well lit result.

Good work and TFS.
