I don't know anyone that can do flower photography like you. This is another absolute winner. Love it.

Love it, Love it. The flowers almost appear metalic. Great photo.

One of the best flower shots I've seen so far in this challenge. Bravo.

Beautiful. Painted with light? This is how flower shots should be done! (And I've done a few boring ones myself!)

Nice image, like the soft focus effect, the colours and composition. I normally don't comment about the border but imo feels like the photo is boxed-in. A more subtle one would probably enhance it. 7

Stunning. I'm currious to see your lighting technique.

This image oozes with vibrancy and fluidity. Wow. Just wow. 10

Superb lighting. Great clarity Wonderful muted colours. 10

The top half is superb. I feel, however, that the deselective colouring and make the vase grey, destroys this image, for me. 5

The colors are nice and hte soft focus works.
04/04/2004 12:12:51 AM
beautiful color, tones, and softness.

my favorite flower shot of this challenge. Thanks K

My top flower shot of the challenge! Was it Gaussian blur used?? Or diffuse glow?? Anyways! Superbe composition and contrasts. The only thing I would change is the frame color as I find it distracting. 9

Appealing and lovely to look at. Good going.
04/02/2004 06:39:50 PM
very interesting lighting. I like the effect it creates. it makes the shot unique.
04/02/2004 06:09:09 PM
lovely soft focus. i could do without the border, though.
04/02/2004 04:22:25 PM
Stunning. An absolutely perfect picture all the way around. Good luck, and congratulations.
04/01/2004 10:17:17 PM
i like the lighting you used, nicely done
04/01/2004 10:34:42 AM
almost looks like a painting, nice!
04/01/2004 09:18:12 AM
lovely mood created by the dual tones and soft focus. The arrangement of the flowers and the selection of background and vase is wonderful. but ooo that border why, oh, why did you put it? ;) A thinner, neutral color would have been all that you needed.
04/01/2004 06:24:20 AM
EXCELLENT painting with light and the washed out feel to this image is great! Soft focus works well here too. One of the nicest floral / still life shots I have seen in a long time. Good luck. Among my favs.
04/01/2004 06:11:36 AM
Very nice setup, great painting with light I suppose..good job! 10
04/01/2004 12:57:34 AM
Oooh,very pretty and I like the softness of this very much, Franziska....but the frame has GOT to go, or at least some or most if not all of it. The color is fine I just think it is too much, it distracts and maybe is a bit too powerful in size for the delicacy of your flower image.
