So soft is the head of this Chrysanthemum, is touch as well as its pale tones give so a delicate mood.
Added blur around the edges.

salut steve,
vraiment soft....
très beau
et une finesse dans le cadrage propre à toi

Hi Steve, Fantastic blur added around to make the image looks softer. Sometimes PP is needed to add the mood to the picture in order to make it more presentable. Nice Marco image. Have a good day

Beautiful! Awesome macro with excellent lighting and nice details. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Steve, I don't know how you do it, but the lighting in your shots is always very special.
I love the tight crop concentrating upon the centre of the chrysanthemum.Lovely colours and shapes.The blurred edges works a treat.

Regards Jean.

Hi Steve,a great choice for this weeks theme,with your added artistic touch to the image,it is much more than a good macro,nice touch the yellow glow to its centre. TFS



Hello Steve

Love the yellow tones in the middle of the flower. Is this artificial light? Great pov to capture the full view of texture and light.


Hello Steve. Very effective lighting. Best, Phil

Hi Steve,
This surely is a 'winner'!
Great softness of this flower adorned with glorious lighting.
Very good shallow focusing adapted to this close up.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Bonsoir Steve,

I love the graphism in this image. I am a close-up fan, so small détails, recognizible or not always reach me. Nice contribution to the theme and TFS.

Hi Steve
I would call this soft and warm. The yellow in the middle gives a warm feeling surrounded by soft whites.

Hi Steve,
Original composition. I just love the way you present only the tips of the petals! Simply marvelous.

Olá Steve, bom dia.
Here all is essential, not to add or supress.
Indeed a superb image.
