photoblog image Spring Hellibore

Spring Hellibore

Taken early March at St Nicholas Church in Brockenhurst, this picture of a dark coloured Hellibore is one of several I submitted to WhatDigitalCamera for a product review.

The picture has been cropped and resized and one click of contrast.

I like those water droplets. They make it looks so fresh! I also think the background color is just perfect for this flower.
I love flower photos, and this one is grand. Unlike me, you even know the name of your specimen. smile
Beautiful shot, Ellie.
Very pretty with water dripping and a bud left to open.

Composition is nice, too, Ellie.
Very well done, Ellie. Lots of detail, colors and textures: Just what I like!

This is so "picture book," Ellie. The DOF is spot on. My camera would never do this!! The magazine surely had to love it!

Speaking of the magazine, I was able to pull up the latest issue but couldn't access any of the articles. Do YOU have your own special link??
Wow!! This is "picture perfect"! Well done Ellie! ( standing up and applauding you vigourously!!)
I like the backround and its DOF, very good framing. I like the dews or drops of rain. Awsesome shot Ellie.
Lovely colour palette in this image, think I've only seen the pale winter ones before. Made me think of cornfields and poppies when I saw the thumbnail.
Ohhh !! Ellie, esta foto es muy bonita. Los colores, el dof son muy buenos. Me gusta!

Ohhh! Ellie, this photo is very pretty. The colors, dof are very good. I like!

Ellie, this became an instanmt Likey for me. Everything about it is perfect: colouring, crop, angle of view, DOF -- but it's the water droplets which give that really special crowning touch.
Like the composition, DOF and the colours of the flower combined with the background colour
Composition is nice. Perfect DOF too

WOW, beautiful picture Ellie, great colours (especially background!) and details! Keep posting so great pictures and I will fail my exam! wink wink wink
Wonderful rich colours! Believe it or not, I was photography in the same location today!
Brilliant DOF and perfect focus. The water on the flower really set this shot off.

Crisp and nice colour. I like the raindrops.
Hmmmm, just hmmmmm smile
Nice Ellie....Nice!!!! cool shot on my B'DAY! (wink!)
This is really lovely. Like the water droplets on the petals.

Good camera this. My other half has the E400, as I could only afford an E500 which I do like, it's a bit bulkier though than the E400!
