Lovely take of this beautiful Hepatica. The large leaf is a bit misleading...

All the best,


Hello Gerard,
A sensational image marked by excellent composition with the shapes of the leaf and the stems. And then, of course, the beautiful colours in such good definition. Well done indeed.

Salut Gérard

Hello Gerard,
A perfectly shown image of the highest quality. Love the super sharp focus and viviid yet natural colors. DOF is superb and composition is very eye appealing. I really like the low POV and excellent exposure you managed to capture. Great work!!

Bonjour Gerard,

Another beautiful find on the ground, amazing how our earth can presented us all the wonderful little jewels of bright and colorful blossome. This on is really beuatiful with the bright lavander colors with cheerful wiskers of white dots. Good quality photo.


Hello Gérard.

Bonjour Gérard,
Une anémone hépathique qui a une superbe couleur et que tu as très bien mise en scène avec cette photo. Bon choix de cadrage et belle lumière. Je vois que tu photographies en RAW.
Bonne soirée

Bonjour Gérard,
This is a species I always want to find, but without success so far - seems like it doesn't live in our area at all. Your photo is composed the best possible way with incredible lights, sharpness and colors + marvellous depth of field. The out of focus parts (green and dried leaves) seem like an underwater scene, very suggestive also. Excellent job MF, truly excellent! Love it!
Friendly regards, László
