una bella inquadratura anche se un po' anonima
la panca messa sulla parte destra è ben organizzata
lo sfondo della serra e dei girasoli
ottimi elementi e peccato che la luce sia un po' debole
va aumentato il contrasto e la luce


Hi Jolanta

Hi Jolanta,
This is the Irish weather, dull and rainy!
Lovely mood before a heavy rainfall!
Nice subdued lighting, enough to highlight the flowers!
Nice shot!

Hello jolanta,

Excellent composition with bench is empty and a pretty atmosthere. Rainy weather did not stop the light and clarity to be good. An invitation to walk, I love personally.
Takes care.

Hello Jolanta,

Beautiful composition. The light tones are great. The colors are perfectly shown.

Best regards,

Hi Jolanta,

This is a good shot but could have been better if you had used fill flash clarify and sharpened aside from that it is a true representation of a dull day. I like the pov nice dof so well done.

Hi jolanta

Wonderful repetition of the fg sunflowers, although Id be tempted to boost brightness & contrast using a big feather margin. Excellent framing & sharpness. Tfs.

Hello Jolanta,
I would be so curious to see this arboretum in person. It appears like the sunflowers are in peak bloom. The bench adds a rustic element in the composition. I hope you don't a WS, mainly to adjust exposure. My best regards.

Hi Jolanta,
Very beautiful place vith excellent POV and perspective.TFS.


Hallo Jolanta,
Co to za orangeria.Imponujaca szklanna budowla.Te obloki na niebie nie zapowiadaja dobrej pogody.Te kwiaty z przodu zamykaja ta piekna kompozycje.Pozdrawiam Siegfried

dear Jolanta,
this light and colors feel so Dublin, I like it.
a very imaginative composition of the glass house, the bench with nobody, dark trees and still shining sunflowers.
quiet and a little depressed atmosphere is like downtown in Paris...
thank you,

Hi Jolanta,
Beautiful composition with the bench and sunflowers,
Excellent POV. and details..good colors .
The WS of Danilo is nice too..with a correction Gamma..
A nice place and presentation.
