[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Today, my younger son, real nature lover, friend of all butterflies, fungi and plants, became 7 years old. So I upload a photo which was done on an unforgettable trip with him - our Tihany Peninsula trip during our summer vacation.

The plant is, as far as identification goes, Xeranthemum annuum, a beautiful annual. Used to be said it's locally common, not even protected by the laws - but I've never seen this beauty before. On TrekNature I only found one image of it either.

Photo: using my macro converter lens, shutter priority mode. Through PP cropping, slight level correction, after re-sizing selective sharpening.

As a special gift, in the workshop you can see my son Peter on that trip, on a sighting rock near Tihany village.

Thanks for looking.

Hello Laszlo
Best wishes for your son's seventh birthday,
Congratulations for the photo, but remember that the flowers do not move among the branches like birds, for this reason, the focus can always say hello.

Hi Laszlo.
Every time if I have an opportunity I walk with my grandfather (almost 8 years old) who love nature and has a small compact camera. I also think it is the best pastime for children. I think I have met these plants in our region. I will check this thesis this year. It is very nice and you managed to show its beautifulness very well at natural surroundings. Details and exactness of colours of the flower are excellent. My warm regards and best wishes.

Hi Wladek,
really nice point of view. Amazing colours. Perfect prove of spring,
thanks for sharing,

Bonjour Laszlo,
Belle publication valorisant bien le sujet dans une agréable composition et sous une bonne profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hallo Laszlo,
a very beautiful macro shot of this marvellous flower, very good sharpness and marvellous colours, point of view and composition are excellent
Best regards

Hello Laszlo,
great capture of this plant with good sharpness and a well chosen POV. I also like the vivid colours and your fine use Of the Raynox DCR 250.
Best wishes and Happy Easter,

Hello Lazlo!
Nice to "see" you again here in TN!
Wonderful flower like a star...I love this color so much!And it seems loose in the space.Great job as usually! Thanks fro sharing and also tahnks for visiting my gallery!
Happy Easter to you and beautiful family!

Hi Laszlo!
Thanks for your candid critique on my recent picture. I like a critique to be analytical and sincere and I thank you for it again.
The purple wild flower you have show-cased today looks beautiful in your picture. However, the position of shadows suggests the light was somewhat harsh at the time you took this picture. As a result, the hints of OE on parts of the petals are rather obvious.
Kind regards,

splendid composition and colors performance, a beauty and a lovely dedication my friend!
regards Laszlo

Hi Laszlo,
Truly a magnificent flower captured in equally magnificent splendour my friend! Excellent sharpness and detail, beautiful colour, placing and POV. Great work and congratulations on your son's 7th birthday.
Best regards,

Hi Laszlo!
The flower of the WS is certainly more beautiful than this one! Congratulations on your nice son an my best wishes to him...even if late :))
Excellent shot, Laszlo of this nice flower (new for me). Great details of the heart of the flower and nice lighting.
Very well composed and presented.
Congratulations my friend.
Have a nice week.
Ciao! Vanda

Hello László.
To be out with the family on nature treks can be educational and beneficial to the younger generation. We made a climb on a hill yesterday morning with my wife, 9 year old daughter and seven year old son. We had fun celebrating at the top. This is a fine capture of the happy memory of your vacation.
Thanks and have a nice day.
