Hi Ryszard,

The iris is well positioned in the frame with plenty of breathing space & good sharpness. The shallow dof helps to isolate & emphasize the flower more distinctly from its bg. Tfs!

Ciao Ryszard, great macro of fantastic flower, beautiful blurry BG, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

A pin-sharp shot from a beautiful Iris flower against a well blurred BG, Ryszard!

Great sharpness and well clarity with nice POV and DOF.
The colors are natural and exposure is well handled.
I like the vertical format of the shot.

Witaj Ryszardzie :)

Ten irys jest przepiekny, wyglada jak namalowany!
Pokazales go w cudownym swietle, pieknych kolorach,
a ciemne tlo bardzo uwydatnia jego urode.
Doskonala, bardzo efektowna kompozycja...gratuluje!

Cieplutko pozdrawiam, bo u nas bardzo zimno.

Hi Ryszard!
A wonderful floral composition, as usual.
Marvellous soft light and superb DOF, which isolated the flower very well. Perfect focus on the Iris. Very well presented.
ciao! Vanda

Hi Ryszard.

A wonderous pattern to this Iris of yours, the way the colours crinkles and fades around the edges is very attractive. Nice use or portrait style. TFS

Stv :0))

Greetings Ryszard,I really like how you captured this Iris,where some of its petals are opened fully,while others are only partially open as though protecting its centre from the suns rays.I liked the natural coloring as well as the sharp details. I thought perhaps the background lacked a little color,& noticed that it did contain some hints of greens,yellows & reds & did a workshop to make a comparison after I brought these colours out a bit more,using the hue & saturation tool in CS5.I also did a tighter crop by removing some of the top,but leaving all the space at the sides.Hope you approve.

Hi Ryszard,
An awesome floral capture with excellent sharpness. Impeccable details and a pleasant POV. Very natural colors and a complimenting blurred BG to render a 3D effect to the presentation.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Boa noite Ryszard,
