*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* HELLO DEAR FOLKS *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*


While walking through the flowers, I found these flowers like the observing security cameras.. ;) They were looking very VIGILANT and alert.. :)
Well, I liked the colors so much. You see how nature is mixing the colors that you cannot draw a perfect separation line. So beautifully amalgamated that they give the wonderful range of colors and a good example for a costume color combination or a print over the cloth.
Well the leaf I kept myself in the composition as it was giving another look to the shot. I also captured without that but this one amazed me more than others. No crop done.

Thanks for the visits and your helpful ideas,

Best Regards,

Salam Ali Bhaijaan,
What a superb close up with nice focus, colours and lighting.TFS.


Bonjour Ali

Magnifique capture et superbes details.
Une belle pensée aux couleurs douce.
Bravo Ali!!

Salam Ali ji,

A nice macro capture from a Pansy with lovely subtle colors!

The technical aspects of the picture great including DOF, sharpness and clarity but...
this shot could be nicer if you would have opted for a lower POV, I mean almost at the same level where you can be "face-to-face" to the center of this lovely flower. Therefore, this shot is lacking the charm in itself. This is just my humble opinion, so please don't take it personally.

Thank you for such a nice capture!

best regards,

Sorry, out of smilies for today

Hello Ali,
Une pensée douceur aux pétales délicats.
La nature n'a pas manqué de crayonner son coeur.
Très gracieuse fleur.
Merci Ali et bonne soirée.
Amitiés. Yolande

dear Ali,
the light in cloudy day makes this pansy so quiet...
originally the pansy is cheerful and noisy flower, but in this your shot, it looks very calm and settled,
maybe its colors are so still that the ambience becomes tranquil and silent enough,
I feel even mysterious atmosphere surrounding it,
thank you for your wonderful shot,

Hello Ali! Nice flower. Good exposure and capture. Perfect contrast and sharpness. Sophisticated work. Well done!

Hey Ali,

What a wonderful "portrait" of this lovely pansie.
Great light and exposure here presenting some perfect white, a hard color to capture.
Very good sharp details and warm colors. A fine POV.
Congrats and TFS.

Best regards,

Hi Ali!
Excellent picture. Great contrast: the nice yellow pansy stand out against the excellent blurred B/G. Very good light and clarity.
This is a refined composition for the presence of two colours only. Very well done.
