Petunia in the rain

Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into.

  1. Beautiful macro! Love the light.

  2. I really like the concept and execution of the composition… it just feels like a bit dark/underexposed to me in the centre area. But the detail is lovely.

  3. beautiful!!!

  4. A gorgeous macro shot. I like the light and all the droplets. A tiny bit more light in the center part could be nice but this one is a great image either way.

  5. Uwe

    Thanks a lot for the reminders about the center light. Silly me deleted a layer before merging for JPEG. Corrected!

  6. Lovely capture! :)

  7. This just takes my breath away.

  8. Very interesting and creative work. Excellent!

  9. I didn't see the previous version but the center is certainly light enough now… even surprisingly captivatingly so (a bit of genetically engineered bioluminescence borrowed from a firefly) this is certainly not meant to be a critique as we (i.e. all photographers) can improve on nature isn't it?

  10. The droplets of moisture on petals…perfection.

  11. Excellent processing on this one, that blue colour is really great. And yes the center light looks good now. I think such a lovely plant ofcourse has a soul.

  12. Each morning when I open up my mail and see your new photo, you never fail to amaze me.

  13. What a great light here!! Simple composition but so beautiful! great work!

  14. Splendid.

  15. so filigran, so zart und zerbrechlich – eine wundervolle Aufnahme!

  16. Superb light Uwe!

  17. Ich habe es wirklich genossen mich durch deine Fotos zu Klicken. Habe Dich mal in meinen Feed Reader aufgenommen um kein Foto zu verpassen.

  18. Like a black hole in the middle of the universe, just one filled with light.

  19. I just hate flower shots, because everybody does them, and they all look the same, but this one is awesome. I love it!
    And oh, consider yourself bookmarked. You've got some breath taking shots!
