Fresh, bright, crisp, sharp and clear.... what more do you want. Lovely photo Julie.

I like the light you managed to fetch in this lovely floral shot, Julie!

Good details and well caught POV with amazing DOF.
The colors are natural and contrasts are well maintained throughout the picture.
Nicely executed work!

Hi Juliet,
Beautiful wet pink flowers adorned with splendid lighting. Great rim lighting around their tender petals. A very sharp and descriptive image.
Well done and enjoy your weekend.

Hi Julie!
Lovely couple of pink, delicate flowers, captured with excellent POV and DOF. Nice soft lighting and superb details. You chosen a nice moment to take the picture, it is undeniable, the rain droplets add great fascination to the composition.
Very well done my friend: congratulations.
Ciao and nice WE to you too! Vanda

Hi Julie,

as usual to avoid a poor show i will don't venture in a speech about the photographic technique, for me is enough to have a look at the thin fragility of the petals -especially in the left flower- in this your photo.And even though there were imperfections, i really think they would be negligible.



Wow! Details are so sharp and I love the effect of the water droplets! Awesome colors with good saturation. Very well done, tfs.

Dear Julie,
Pink wasn't so charming and delicate, a respectable compsition here. Sharp details, live luminosity and excellent placement of the frame. An aesthetic snapshot, well done. Thanks for sharing.
Kind Regards,

Ciao Julie, lovely drops on beautiful flowers, excellent clarity, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

This image is excellent. I love the detail captured of the raindrops and the delicate pink colour of the flowers. Wonderful lighting to achieve the translucency in the petals.


Boa noite Julie,

What a beautiful shot and roses.
Great detail of the rain drops, very good focus, light and contrast.


I love the bokeh and the this bunch of wet flowers which look so pretty against it, Juliet!

Good control on light and exposure with amazing sharpness and details.
The colors are natural and DOF is excellent.

Well caught floral macro shot! TFS


Hi Julie, I envy you for the lovely Hollyhocks and the rainyou had to have those beautiful droplets.
Its such a close up that you feel they are looking at you. Just a gorgeoous presentation.
Kindest regards Monika.

Our Hollyhocks were blooming one day and then they all died - we have since weeks no rain to speak off and we can not water everything. Water day and night our vegies.

Hello Julie,
This is absolutely beautiful! The subtle colour variations with the droplets are marvelous. What a pleasure to view.
Best wishes.
