Hello everyone,my contribution to todays theme is taken from our church's recent flower festival.
Every nook and cranny was filled with beautifully arranged flowers;here, a spiral staircase[now unused because of safety] lends its' steps to some flower arrangements.Not the easiest place to take a shot as there was light comimg down from above, but I think that you get the general idea.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Jean,
An original approach to the subject! Yes, an unusual use of the stairs but still an attractive arrangement. Good use of available lighting. Good details the rock's texture.
A adequate contribution to the theme.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

I'd say this is rather unusual use of a stairs, I hope it's not a fire escape. LOL Very nice contrast of the beautiful flowers against the rough stones steps. Nicely captured with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Jean,

Good symmetry between the 2 yellow flowers with excellent dof, color & sharpness. Tfs!

Flowers on both the distal ends of these stairs give this work a special look, Jean!
The light is well handled and clarity is nice.
The sharpness and POV are well done, and DOF is nicely done.
Well done!

Have a nice weekend.


Nice atmospheric shot and nice fit for todays theme.

Bonjour Jean,

Séduisantes marches fleuries, c'est original.
Excellents contraste et détails.
Belle idée pour la contribution du thème de ce vendredi.
Bravo pour ceci. TFS.
Salutations amicales. Ayez une belle journée.

I can imagine the difficulty getting around the shaft of light at the top of the stairs but you have managed ok as both flower arrangements have retained good detail overall , you have steady hands Jean if you shot this without a tripod , a nice entry to the theme ,
