Again and again, the flowers bloom for you. As usual, the control of light is perfect and this one even seems to whisper. Lovely.

Russ from New Hanover, PA, United States

This is gorgeous. Definitely not the typical flower shot. This is so sharp that I can see the pollen on the anthers. Well done! Print it, frame it, hang it.

You have a remarkable gift with flowers, Anita! This is just stunning! So soft and delicate ... I wouldn't have expected such soft focus from f/22. I have two potted Clivia (light orange flowers) sitting in my basement waiting to get outside ... this shot makes me long to photograph it!

@Ron: I'm not sure why it works with f22. It is a bit surprising. Thanks for your encouraging words.

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom
