Simone from -, Germany

Love the small DoF and the perspective! The stem adds a lot and is guiding the view! The overall photo is a bit too noisy for my liking, but thats just me ;-)

4 Apr 2012 10:20am

@Simone: Thanks, Simone, for the feedback. The texture could be responsible. The flowers do not show well here. They have a 'dirty' look to some of them. I was going to post a bluebonnet, but the color was so off that I had to remove it. That's why I'm using 500px.

Hossein Saharnaz from Ahvaz, Iran

soft and dremy colors.

Did you guys get any storms yesterday? The tornado got very close to us, and it was scary for awhile but we dodged the bullet.
