Viva Espana!

Now, when the Football World Cup in South Africa is over, I was immediately looking for an image where at least the subdominant colors are red and yellow (Spanish national colors) to celebrate Spain's first World Championship victory. Hm, I know the "red" on the pic is purple, but please forgive me - that's nature...

The "red" flower in the foreground is Dianthus deltoides, often planted in gardens, but living wildly in the montaneous area here, protected by the laws in Hungary; while the yellow in the background is Lathyrus pratensis, a common species on fields and roadsides.

Photo taken on a field in the Bükk mountains, on ca. 800 meters asl., back in 2008. Tech: moderate cropping, slight level adjustment, framing, re-sizing, noise reduction.

Dear Spanish Friends, congrats and have a bottle of beer (or two) tonight.

Szia Laci!

Gratulálok a szép virághoz, meg a VB spanyol győzelméhez!

Hallo Laszlo
Viva Espana!
Maybe you see a purple flower, but on my screen is shows pink. But what the heck, it is the thought that counts and it is indeed a beautiful and most petite little flower. The details is seen with great clarity. especially the white markings on the zig-zag petals. This is a lively and warm image and most appropiate to celebrate a victory. I also like the blurred flowers in the background. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Laszlo.
What a nice symmetric composition created by charming flowers and impressive BG. It is difficult to imagine more beautiful presentation of these flowers and natural surroundings. Colours are great and combination of the sharpness of the main subject and level of blurriness of the BG is perfect too. Best wishes and compliments.

Ciao Lazlo. Top details and sharp with best bright colours. What fantastic paint. An so: best compliments for World Cup winners! Le "Furie rosse".


Ciao Laszlo, sure, Arriba Espana, lovely flowers in a beautiful natural ambientation, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful bright colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Laszlo friend!
Ha ha ha ... certainly that's not the red of "THE SPANISH FURY" ... but still a good picture to celebrate! ... I join you in the celebration! ... My father descended from Spanish, therefore half of my blood vibrated with the party of yesterday!... the other half lives with hope to see Venezuela team compete in Brazil 2014!

Leaving aside football, I like the DOF management in your photo. These two flowers seem to float on the background! ... good job! ... and trim and quite attractive composition.

TFS, Regards, Jesús

Hello Laszlo,
Very interesting mirror-like effect, with attractive colours and sharp details. Very pretty dianthus. Have a nice week,

Bonita dedicatoria Laszlo, que agradezco como Espańol que soy; fue un partido poco vistoso ya que solo había un equipo que se dedicó a jugar a fútbol, pero este deporte es así ( no evoluciona jajaja).
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Ciao Ladislao,

Hi Laszlo,

A wonderful way to celebrate Spain's victory. Your win was certainly THE news of the day. The "red" flowers are very beautiful and you show them in fine detail. I love the patterns and the lovely shape of the petals. The composition with the two blurred yellow flowers is superb.


Thank you veru much, MF.
I am not crazy about football, but your dedication is welcome :)
As you say, the "red" flowers are beautiful and delicate, the clarity of the capture is excellent. I am always amazed of your maestry using this camera, you get incredible results for this equipment.
Hope to have faster inet soon, to be around moe often.
Best regards, Felipe.

Bonjour Laszlo,
Superbe mise en valeur des sujets, sous une belle lumičre, dans une cadrage serré et sous une excellente profondeur de champ qui font resplendir les couleurs et ressortir les détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Nice colors and composition of flowers, two and two. Regards,

what an unexpected dedication or rather association with the world cup friend Laszlo! ..but perfectly executed image indeed. Well done for your creativity here! Hope to hear from you shortly ...I guess you are busy with some work or perhaps tired from the boring Treknature those days ;)
