[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When I had a walk in a park, I saw this pansy and felt that it had a friendly smile in its face for me. I captured it with my new Canon G 11, full size, darkened the bg, so that you all can have the same feeling: "This pansy gives me a lovely smile". Enjoy it and have a happy day.Thank you for your critics or comments and don´t bother about the discussions about the rule,critique or comments ,there are more important things in life.

Hi Rose and TL neighbor,

Not only are we neighbors today, but we have a similar theme. Your macro of the
yellow pansy is very nice. Very sharp, and the background looks sufficiently blurred. A dark background works so nicely against a bright flower such as this, so the vignetting works very well. Nice pp work.

Warm regards,

Hi dear Rose!
Beautiful romantic pansy!
Splendid light. I love the great contrast of colours.
Excellent presentation.
Ciao! Vanda
Sorry, at time I will do only comments

Dear Rose,

A razor-sharp pansy, adoring a lovely smile which not only you and me, even nobody can resist :) The colors are natural and the focus is nicely done on the flower.

The black frame ofcourse suits very well to the composition and gives great contrast to this golden beauty ;)

It could have been a more welcoming shot if you have rotated the pansy face to ~15° in the anti-clockwise direction :)
It is just a suggestion, so please don't take it personally :D

Schöne Grüße aus Sonnigen Kassel, aber trotzdem schon Kalt

Hallo Rose,
gut gemacht - wirkt schon fas surreal. Um was geht es bei der neuen Regel? Hab ich das was verpasst?
Gruß vom sonnigen Rheinufer,

Bonjour Rose,
Un très beau sourire en effet. Le jaune éclatant sort littéralement de l'image et est renforcé par le cadre.
Merci du partage.

Hi Rose,

A fine "piece of art" that nature gives us.
This lovely pansy is presented beautiful.

The colors are very good captured with nice light conditions.
Very good sharp details and a nice frame.
Even if it's a hard to catch colors you did a great job here.
Very good POV. Congrats and TFS.

Best regards,

Hi Rose ,
Well my friend a beautiful yellow pansy with good light condition,the darkening in BG or vignetting effect makes it a well prominent in the frame,the focus on the lower petal is good while the upper petal tends to a minor out of focus but over all a lovely flower with warm greetings my friend.
Best Regards
