Hi Neighbor!

Love the lighting on this hydrangea. Good use of the dof with nice details. Wonderful colors with good saturation. Very well done, tfs.

My favorite color, my favorite flower! My grandmother had tons of these around her old house! LOVE the textures of the leaves here. Could be a little more saturated, but that's just a matter of preference! good job!

Hi Julie.

I love taking pictures of this colours Hydrangea, the blue is soft and meaningful. You have done wonders with the focal point, brings the eye to attention so well. I like also the darks and the framing to enhance this blue of yours. The light was a dear friend to you here, so pleased you gained from it. tfs

Hi Julie
good capture of a beautiful blue hydrangea. clear details. nicely composed. pleasant softness of tones, enhance by the dark BG and frame.

A crisp shot of blue hydrangea with amazing light and exposure, Julie!

Good focus and perfect sharpness on a lovely flower while keeping the rest well blurred.
The colors are natural and contrast against a well dark BG is fantastic.
Nice work!

Kind regards,

Hi Julie,

Hope you are having a nice summer. Very nicely captured shot of these blue hydrangeas in the late afternoon lighting. The shadows and gradual blurring of the flowers in the background are all very well captured. Nicely done. TFS.
