Posted by

I appreciate the honest feedback on my prior post. You help improve my photography.

We haven't had a hard frost yet, so I still have Dahlias blooming. What joy!


I have been INTERVIEWED three times by photo-buddies:

I've been away from photography for about six months. What a pleasure it is to return this week and discover your beautiful flowers! I've thoroughly enjoyed my stay, having looked at many of your images. Rather than put a lot of comments on older photos, I'll begin with this one and follow your work in the days ahead.

I love the soft pastel treatment in this image. This is very well done.

I need to find my thesaurus and find some new adjectives for your work! ;) Each visit is a visual treat and a beautiful way to start my morning.

Beautiful color, detail, positioning in the frame. I am assuming that most of your images these days are from "in studio", is that correct? You are doing wonderful work. You were doing terrific work a year ago and still have improved many times over.

@Ed Vatza: Thanks, and yes, in "studio."

The color is beautiful and amazing, Anita. The detail excellent. Your flower photographs take my breath away they are so beautiful.

It is SO beautiful.
The few Dahlias that the snails didn't eat are safe put away from the frost.
It's nice to see some here.

Absolutely beautiful Anita, like how you filled the frame and the lighting is exceptional. A stunning composition as always.
