Hello dear friends,

This blue flowerbed attracted my attention this evening! Blue and green is my favorite colored harmony. I used my 50 mm f/1.8 II lens for this one. I like the bokeh, I got with it.

Thanks for viewing and commenting.
Have a nice week!

Hi Annie,
Nice play with shallow DOF. You managed to produce an attractive presentation of these blue flowers. I like the tall thistles which are sharp and the splendid bokeh BG which you produced with this marvelous lens.
Very neat and creative presentation.
My regards,

Francis Xavier


Un jardin enchanté, oh oui, le bokeh est superbe, si je devais utiliser un seul et unique mot pour décrire cette photo je dirais : MervEilleuX.
L'ensemble est harmonieux , une symphonie de couleurs pour ce début de soirée.
J'aime beaucoup les petites touches de rouge qui ponctuent cette féerie.
Très belle lumière et la présentation est comme toujours, soignée et élégante.
Un sincère BRAVO

Bonsoir Annie ,
Hé oui : Annie qui nous réjouit avec ses compositions de fleurs , ces derniers temps ! Et pourquoi pas , puisque c ' est très très joli ? Oserais - je ajouter : particulièrement celle - ci .... Amitiés . Ernest .

Hi Annie,

Indeed, blue and green make a soothing combination and you have chosen a wonderful POV to unveil this lovely scene of Nature but IMHO, if you could keep the blue flowers (in FG) well in focus, that might have give this work even more appealing look. As the blurred flowers tend to take the viewer's interest away from the whole scene. It is just my personal taste, please don't mind.

Other than that, this is a marvelous work where one see the harmony of flower sticks with the Globe thistles make it a lovely work. A black striped frame also suits well to the picture and provides nice contrast to the picture.

Good job!

Thanks and regards,

  • Great

Good Morning Annie,
That's an interesting catch of lavender in wild. Your lowered PoV is exciting. Luminosity is great. An aesthetic presentation. Well done. Thanks for sharing.

Boa noite Annie
I like green and blue (and green and red too) but what i really like is the luminosity of your photos...it looks that you made things shine in a very special way, that ligh is in the bokeh of bg...it make me remember light christmas.
Um abraço

Hi Annie...nice combination of colors with perfect focus and depth of field...well done.


Bonjour Annie,

Dans ce jardinet enchanteur, bel accord vibrant sur cette envolée florale.
Superbe Bokeh . Bravo pour cette composition ordonnée aux couleurs lumineuses. Merci pour le partage.

Hi Annie,I too like the Bokeh that sparkles in the background
I particularly like your choice of DOF,choosing to have the central flowers your focal point while the foreground & background is much softer,giving another dimension to your image.The colors blend well together & the small amounts of red add to your composition,very well taken IMHO.
Best Regards

Bonsoir Annie,
Jolie close-up de cette harmonie de blue et de vert,
Excellent cliché et prise de vue,
magnifiques couleurs et détails,

Hi Annie,
great picture, with many plans, a great point of view. Wonderful sharpness and light, very real and natural.

Hello Annie, I just love everything about this shot; excellent work.
The bokeh is amazing!And the fg blue flowers...some in focus and some not, beautiful.
Very good tight crop.
I am putting this into my favourites, thank you.
Regards Jean.
