[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was fascinated today by the colours and design of the collection of Iris (hybrids) of the National Botanic Garden of Belgium.
This photo is made with two shots, to have the "lip" and the yellow "hair" in focus.
The beauty of the flowers is a pleasure for the eyes a great source of inspiration and fantasy...

Oh my goodness, you got too close to the Iris flower, Catherine! :)

The POV is superb here, which makes this show attractive and one has to stop by when seeing this lovely work. the sharpness and DOF are so well managed. The blurry BG gives nice contrast to this lovely colorful flower.

Best greetings,

Wow! It's a beautiful fantasy. Wonderful macro, great colors and good details. Job well done.

HI Catherine,
A marvellous POV for this macro shot of the heart of an Iris flower. Wonderful light control with the yellow stamen in perfect exposure and creating a pleasant contrast with the rest of the flower.
The BG compliments the subject and the crop is just adequate for this lovely composition.
Well seen and neatly presented.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier
