Comment from Dick Lee Shia


A virtual 6 for a fantabulous overall impact!
Yes, everything sounds more romantic in French, too!

Sharply focused.
Fine features & textures with bonus water droplet reflections.
Contrasting colors.
Visually appealing.
Dynamic diagonal framing.

Nice perspective & narrow DOF.

Thanks for sharing...

I love this photograph. So much of clarity and sharpness of the flowers. Very nicely used Depth of fields.The out of focus flowers color combination gives an added sharpness to the white flowers.

This is so beautiful. What a great shot. The colors arebright and crisp. I really like the dark in the corner with muted flowers in the background. And the refection in the lilly is such a clever idea and really added a stunning beauty. Well done!

A beautiful shot with the kind of reflections in the droplets that would make Jairos envious. Great exposure for the white flowers and excellent composition.

Comment from Robert Davis


Very beautiful photograph and stout effort. Well composed and exposed. The reflections are great. My suggestions: the background flowers are competing for attention, if you move them away from the primary subject, maybe to the right lower quadrant and deeper in the background, they will still be reflected in the drops and fill up some dead space.

    Thank you so much for your great review Robert, but the flowers were necessary because the sun was on the left in order to get the reflections. Another spot just wouldn't do it. I left them in so to show what was being reflected. Appreciate your suggestion.

Comment from Sange


In Italian I say: Lilly Della Bella

Very impressive capture with awesome flower reflections inside the water drops. Your white balance is controlled, focus sharp, diagonal placement visually appealing with a fine soft colorful DOF.
Nice work Marsha

Comment from Susan F. M. T.


Marsha,
A cyber SIX for this wonderful droplet picture of the Lily of the valley with droplets of water clinging to each floret & within each droplet the perfect reflection of the magenta pink daisy shaped flowers growing beneath them. Artistic composition, framing & lighting take with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.
Susan
