Excellent choice. Those little hairs are often overlooked, but always felt when handling those flowers. Beautiful colors!

Extra special, so glad to be back in your eye's view. Touching, very fragile and I adore the colors and those hiding in the background. Even the back side of poppycock is lookin' good. You surely still have it. Now to review the past photos since I missed so much with my family times. Keep up the inspirations and gifts of God for us all lest we forget what is always around us.

Dulcie, this is beautiful .. more than beautiful ! Love the angle, compo , but above all, these tones are glorious ! Poppy flower is always great inspiration !

I begin with 5 stars. It gives an idea ? Of course, definetely superb and with no doubt... I love it ! The flower seems to radiate from inside, the sensuality of the petals, the details (thanks to this remarquable focus) and DOF really create a very eyecatching macro. A round of applause for you. :-)

Amazing clarity and detail at 450mm, with the serene beauty of the stem hairs captured against the colours so perfectly.

Nice macro with beautiful colors !
22 Mar 2010 8:48pm
wonderful. great composition and colors and point of view. is it a double exposure?
23 Mar 2010 9:37am
@Anita: Yes, I layered two images together, just sightly off-setting them.
Two are better than one, right ?? ;-)
I like the way you´ve used the flower stem as the main subject,a different take on macro flower shots !!
23 Mar 2010 5:53pm
Unusual approach but it works
23 Mar 2010 8:05pm
Thanks for this gorgeous image, Dulcie.....so full of life/heart. I love the big vibrant petals contrasted with the tiny hairs on the stem.....and the little bokeh flowers in the background.

A very sparse beard, indeed! Such tight shots...don't know nuthin' 'bout them lenses! I love the living in side and beside a flower. Feels so like HOney I Shrunk the Kids. You keep me safe with the intimate shots of glory on earth. So grateful for your art and gifts.
