Hi Petru!

A beauty between rocks. Sign of Spring in Poland. I hope we'll see these flowers soon. Very nice composition, amazing spot of yellow colour. Baile Herculane - I like this name!

Beautiful flower against the rock. Nicely photographed. I think, maybe just a little over-exposed.

Very beautiful Petru!
Showing us beauty can appear almost anywhere if we know how to look, except those yellow flowers are waving louding; "here I am! here I am!"

Very well composed Petru. I like the simple, delicate beauty of this wildflower, against the rugged BG. Great detail and color.
Well done.
Thank you!

Petru, I have the feeling the shot could be a little bit sharpner, but that's just an opinion.

Great colors and pov.

I like contrast too.

Hi Petru,
Beautiful wild flowers! Excellent colors and detail in this composition. They look great against the rock backround.

Hi Petru

Very nice composition on this shot. The colours against the BG are excellent. Thanks


Hello Petru,

I like these flowers very much and grow them in my garden.

Lovely composition, with wonderful colors, details, and bright light which you have handled well.

Strange that something so pretty will grow in what seems like harsh conditions.

Well done, thank you.

Lovely shot Petru!
I like the framing a lot. Picture has very good details and nice colours, but I have feeling it's slightly too bright.
Anyway, I like it very much.
