Hello dear friends,

I love August in my region. This is the best time for find a lot of wild flowers. The slopes along the roads are rich of several varieties. Here, we can see Epilobium and Eupatorium maculatum searching for rays of sun.

Raw photo converted in TIFF. With Digital photo professional program, I always converted my raw files in TIFF and JPG in the same time. I use TIFF for adjustment of contrast and levels with PS CS 5. When my work is finished, I copy and paste the image on my JPG file, the exif data are safe and, in my opinion, this is a better way to preserve sharpness of the image.
Thank you for viewing and commenting.
Have a nice weekend!

Oui Annie, les épilobes sont pour moi un symbole directement relié à la Gaspésie...
Une image à la clarté remarquable.....et un décor des plus naturel....!
Merci pour toute cette beauté partagée...

Hi Annie..nice shallow depth of field makes this an interesting and pretty shot. Well done.


Hello Annie,a lovely DoF and PoV of the wild flowers.
The sunlight really highlights the pink and greens of the fg plants.
In the U.K. we call the pink flowers...Rosebay Willow Herb.
A good bokeh puts the flowers in place.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Your low POV and the point of focus with the lighting works well to capture your flowers.
Nicely Done

Bonjour Annie,
Your PoV closer to the earth and perpendicular to the subject is aesthetic. Wonderful luminosity and fine details. That's a lovely catch my friend, well done. Thanks for sharing.
