Dear All,

This is a typical spring shot taken a rainy day when little droplets of water were enhancing the beauty of this tiny plant.

Light is that much enough to expose the flowers in an ambient light.

Hope you enjoy it!

Best greetings,

Hi Paras,
Nice soft lighting in this floral presentation. I like the shallow DOF to isolate the yellow flower against the green blurred BG which also indicate a lovely bokeh.
A very neat macro shot.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Paras,

wunderschönes Macro mit knackiger Schärfe und super Details .
Die Blüten heben sich schön vom Hintergrund ab und presentieren sich dadurch perfekt.

Gruß Detlef

You always surprise me! Great precision! Thanks

Hi Paras,
We have lots of those around here and people say they're good to eliminate warts!
Excellent details and very nice colors on a soft bg.

Bonjour Paras,
Il est clair que les jours de pluie donnent une bonne luminosité extérieure , aucun risque d'avoir une exposition blanche face à l'astre solaire...
C'est donc l'idéal pour prendre les fleurs en photo...
Tu nous le démontres de façon magistrale avec cette fleur de colza sur un joli tapis vert...
Jolis détails et sympathique bg pour cette fleur des champs...

Hi Paras,
Excellent bokeh nicely presented with droplets of water on a rainy day,
Excellent details with nice contrast and light,
Nice focus too in a sharp composition,
have a good day..

Not even rain can dampen the beautiful of nature, in fact it enhance them. Lovely capture of this flower and water droplets. Great lighting and good dof with nice details. Good use of the dof. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Paras,
Nice composition of yellow against the green. I think a bit more DOF to get all the flowers in focus would have helped.

A very sharp and very beautiful capture, your POV is very appealing, it allows the eye to see all the details and little drops of water. Delicate yellow colors and detail from these wild ones. The shallow DOD works well creating an artistic feel of the blurred BG and Bokeh. Well taken Paras. TFS

Hi Paras,

Almost missed this one. Good colour combination of yellow & green with a soft diffused light & nice repetition of the raindrops. Good saturation & framing. Have a nice Sunday!

I love the simplicity of colour - yellow and green - I think your dof could have been a little wider (I would have preferred to have seen the whole plant in Focus but nice job
