Hello dear friends!
Today is Sunday and I used to visit an empty lot near my house to photograph small wild flowers.Of course I don´t know nothing about these flowers, but I was surprised by their beauty.They looked like drops of warm sunshine over the floor.Hope you like it as much as I did.
Big hug !

PS:these flowers were identified by Jesus Linares (jlinaresp) as Cosmos sulphureus.Many thanks dear Jesus! I appreciated it!

Hello aNa,
Now what happened to your earlier upload of just a short while ago? It is such a pity that you removed it. Why? However, this is a very beautiful image too. Wonderful colours and lighting and composition...and a great pleasure to view. Best wishes GWTPH.

Hi Ana,
Outstanding clarity and sharpness. Superb colours with very good details and perfect

Hi Ana,beautiful close-up and very rich background whit the same colors,i like this style and the excellent quality,the yellow in the sun is always difficult to take so well.Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Good day dear aNa. This image presented from you today seems quite out of tune in regards to the white balance settings, my friend. Too yellow perhaps! The composition seems quite characterless as well ...too much depth of field! The background is a big mish mash and the sharpness just ... average. In other words...a disappointment my friend. At least for me!

Hello Ana,
Fantastic shot. Very nice details and great POV.
The composition is lovely.
I like the nice warm colors and the composition.
The yellow colors are truly the most difficult colors to catch.
The WB is very important and in this case the focus is also very important.
Thanks for sharing!

hello Ana
very nice picture with good details and beautiful colours
thanks greeting lou

Hi Ana,

Wow what a splendid composition here my good friend Ana, impressive exposure/white balance control to adorn you with these beautiful rich natural warm colours, which can be only attained with low natural lighting, well it looks like a certain member can only criticise you about what is wrong with this image but can't come up with a remedy?,

I am applaud and discussed with George Velcro's critique to you this evening, to a person whom (you) continuously ask for help and wants direction, and all he does is insult you with his barbaric innuendos, Ana your picture here tonight is fabulous and don't let anyone tell me different, God Bless and goodnight,
Best regards,


My dear friend Ana!... THANKS!

Nice shot!... This flower is a Cosmos sulphureus and this is one of my favorite flowers; in my garden
I have always at least two or three plants of these flowers; I took seeds from the fields years ago and now I always take care to spread some to have these in my garden and back yard. These plants can also be grown in containers if you wish, but then you have to prune them and provide many nutrients.

Also my dear mother filled his yard withs cosmos, then I go there to photograph butterflies, because these plants attract many butterflies! if you look at my photos in TN, you will find that many butterflies are resting on these beautiful cosmos.
Thank you very much for posting this photo, I have never dared to post one of these beautiful flowers in TN, but now you've done very well and very faithful to the characteristics of this flower.

Do not worry about what says the friend George, he's a good friend and great photographer; but seems me in South Africa everything is more gray or something blue! ... He believes that those colors, strong yellows, majestics greens, powerfull reds, etc. Are the result of a bad white balance setting! ... George has told me many times on comments in some shots mine, but there is no way to convince George otherwise! ... ha... ha... ha... :)

Regards, I Send Hugs!

Bonjour Ana,
Belles couleurs. Le jaune du Soleil.
Belle netteté et composition.

Hi Ana,
what a nice flower. Excellent light conditions. Great point of view and perfect composition. Also nice background.
Thanks for sharing,

Dear Ana.
Me gusta esta foto Ana. Mientras que dentro de ti exista el firme proposito de mejorar tus fotos no debe importarte mucho las rudas criticas de quienes creen ser fotografos de primer nive aqui en TN pues el primer proposito aqui es "Aprender" sobre el contenido de la foto.
Felicidades Querida Ana. Personas como Tu hacen que este sito sea hermoso.
Un saludo del ultimo de tus amigos.
Luis Leal.

Ma chère Ana,
En sortant dans la nature on découvre pas mal de choses inattendues et belles. Ces fleurs sont vraiment de petits soleils et Jesus t'a même donné leur nom.
Je me suis un peu amusée avec les remarques de notre ami George, mais il n'a pas pris ombrage. Un bon point pour lui.
Une chose quand même, il me semble que dans ton choix de l'angle de vue, il y aurait encore des choses à améliorer. Par example éviter des tiges sur l'arrière-plan.

Buen encuadre y colores. Quizá algo saturada de rojo.
Un abrazo Ana: J. Ignasi.

Bonjour aNa,
Comment ne pas être attiré par une telle lumière qui fait resplendir la couleur même si la profondeur ne me parait pas excellente, surtout sur les stigmates ?
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Ana
Beautiful photo full of light and colors.

Dear aNa, my favourite photographs are fields of flowers and theyr pure beauty in the spring. they are an amazing range of colours and creations.

You have caught this one just beautifully with the sun at a good angle- and PS the names are what we have given them- their existence is not in our names, but in their beauty. have a wonderful day Rich
