Classical still life
You certainly found the perfect rose. And the whole set up is obviously very well planned. A bit like your x-mas photo. lighting just right, the BG is cloth, I believe. Really nifty.
IF I should say some more, then I'd say that the vase is too big for the 1 rose and it almost sends the main motive in exile.
It's ofcourse a matter of taste, as we have said to oneanother before. But I'd have chosen a differently colored piece of cloth. Something further from the vase... maybe the complementary of the warm yellow / orange: a pale blue / dove blue?
Apart from all that, you did a splendid capture.
ARRRHH. That's one cool shot, Fiona.
Great POV. Super sharp. I can almost feel the surface of the paint-
- take care.
Wow. This truely a masterpiece. I love kingfishers.
Super sharp, perfect compo and great colors
Again a fine shot of the daily life in Pakistan.
I enjoy yous photos a lot.
You have a fine eye for this kind of photography... dokumenting every day life in an honest and unsentimental way. It's a good quality.
It's our national bird. I suppose it's because of the fairytale of H.C. Andersen "The ugly Duckling". Perhaps you know it?
It's a fine compo witha tight cropping and a certain symmery.
It seems the 2 youngsters (brothers?) are communicating. Propably something about food. Fine colors!!
Cheers. Take care
As Erwin says: there's no depth in the photo. It appears flat. But that is maybe the effect you wanted. It's nice in a way.
The little bee hive is a good detail.
Cheers. Take care.
Change of motive, I see.
Super photo. I wish I could see the Savanna / bush once.
Good composition; nice you left some space around the big fellow.
Beautiful capture... taken from above? Inside your house?
It's really a pleasant photo with a narrow DoF. Smart choice.
I don't know, but I want so tell you my hyphotesis on the name:
I think it was Mr. Lagerstrom, who discovered this flower as a new spiecis.
It's a Swedish name. I think it's Magnus Lagerstrom.
Beautiful scenery, exelent composition. Highly interesting, that old tractor.
The photo has obviously been processed... I'll have to admit you know what you're doing. I looks as if the photo is really old, too. You've been able to avoid power masts and such. The photo calls for a certain nostalgia in me.
Nice B/W shot. Good tight composition. Skinne horse and skinny man.
I think the kight was a bit flat that day.
The fort in the BG is interesting. Do you have photos from there?
