Last Monday was a beautiful day for working in the garden, so we decided to pay a visit to the garden centre.

We needed some flowers to brighten up a patch around our little fountain. As I saw these flowers and the water drops on the petals, I couldn't resist to take my camera... and afterwards we put the flowers in our shopping cart, of course.

And you know what, Kat ? Nobody said I couldn't take pictures ;o).

Tech talk

Croppity-crop, very slightly.

Resized for TL in 3 steps.

Added Frank's framing.

Excelent shot and well composed. A beautiful view and the exposure is spot on.
Hey, Dingo forgot to water the flower to the right. LOL

Hey Frank,
I'm usually not one for the flower photo critique, but I really enjoy this great composition and the colors are a fabulous blend and play well with my rods and cones. Love the symmetry of the petals. Captured some great color with splendid lighting here Frank.
Looks like a postcard, actually there could be many commercial applications for this photo. I really like this...excellent presentation.

You are a funny guy.... I can see you and your family looking at flowers and you taking pictures of them. That most have been a site... Nicely done too. The purple seems to be your colour... you have to take a picture of the fountain once you are done planting. Thanks


excellent composition Frank, I love how both flowers fill the frame completly. Very well done.

Great shot, a flower, a nice flower but the few drops in the left are making this picture ! Maybe the parts in the top-corners are a little disturbing, but I like the view !

Hi Franck,
I like the filtered light and the pale colors on this one.

Perfect with a DOF on all the surface from this beautiful flower you finally bought.
Good colors.
Well done
Jean Michel

Excellent capture, beautiful naturalcolors, great detail and well presented.

Wow Frank! This is a great macro. So sharp and colourful. Are you going to give us a 'tour' of your garden with some more wonderful shots. Can't wait to see the fountain. The water droplets are so clear. Great work Frank. Love it.

It's always a good thing to carry a camera with us, isn't it??
Fantastic colours on this one, I think the exposure is perfect that's why the look so great.
An excellent flower capture Frank. Congratulations!!!

Nice compliment to spring Frank. the richness of the colors somehow reflect our lives, individual, yet part of a group. TFS, B

goe bezig, meer van dat.

great colors :)
good macro...i like the droplets on the flower

Very beautiful macro shot of these flowers Frank. I have been posting flowers recently because of their outstanding colour and beauty. This compo is a very good one and everything is crisp and sharp, and the light is good also. Very nicely done.

There's a nice symmetry and effective use of limited colours in this one Frank. Funny thing, our car automatically turns in at garden centres - it's this little hidden device my wife had fitted.

A very nice composition Frank, beautiful color. I like the water drop on the flower, it give some cachet to the picture.
Best regards

Hi Frank,
Very nice close up, very detailed. I like the color and the lines from the center to edges in the petals. The little droplets and the smaller flower in the background enhance the composition.


A lot has been said already, so I'll keep it short: excellent close-up!

You got away with it? I am glad that no one questioned you, as that is vey embarrasing. Maybe you just have an honest face.
The flowers are lovely and the water drops the crowning glory.
Glad you took them home with you!.....:O)

Great shot Frank...love the colours, composition, framing and especially the water droplets.

Hi Frank, yes this is another coloured Osteospermum. But you must be colour-blind - this isn't purple!! It's PINK my friend!!!!
And you show the pair very well, the colours (pink) are so pretty, especially with the raindrops on them. Good composition too. These flowers are so eye-catching. I notice that both our flowers, though totally different coloured petals, both have the same coloured centres.
And I see you have some roses posted too. I must go check out your other flowers now.

Very good color tones. One small is looking like the child of the big one :) So nice composition and very well taken with good exposure.
