photoblog image A sea of Primulas

A sea of Primulas

Another picture of some Primulas that were for sale on Lymington's Saturday market in February. The colours were amazing.

I chose the shallow focus for this one because I was trying to set these flowers against a sea of colour, but with a hint of the grey road as a contrast. Did it work?

It sure did, Ellie. Worked really well. Oh dear, so many plant and flower names to learn and to associate with mental pictures: primula, campanula, clematis, cyclamen -- will I ever learn? Rescue is at hand, fortunately. I spotted a beautiful garden up the road, found out the name of the guy responsible, and he's giving me the once-over early next week. Maybe next years I'll be uploading pics from Jimbo's garden here!

Yes. It's pretty nice.
I love how you composed this pictures....and you are absolutely right, the colours ARE amazing!
Greetings, & Well done Ellie, I think you have got it just right.
This works really well, Ellie. Funnily enough, I trolled around Everton Nurseries with my camera the other day, and did a similar sort of shot with a table full of geraniums. By comparison to this one, it looks very dull and uninteresting. The variety of colour in your shot gives much more interest than my geranium shot. But, for me, the clarity of the pink primula at the front, and the additional interest of the crisp white edge, is what really lifts this photograph. I love it!
One word, three times....gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

Yes...it worked, beautifully!
I think the DOF worked perfectly, hinting at the sea of flowers without being busy.
Lovely colours. Well captured. Cheers, Dave smile
Beautiful colours. I may be in danger of repeating myself but when I see Primulas I automatically think of my father - they were his favourite, primroses, primulas, candelarbra primulas, all of them. Thank-you for my happy memories!
Like it very much, look as a painting : Bravo (especially the progressive background)

Yes, Ellie. It definite;y worked! I'm not familiar with Primulas at all, so these are fun to see, especially the pinkish ones with white edges.
Oh El I do like and I know I think that you didn't put those hi lights in.

Que degradado de colores más bonito has conseguido aquí. Me gusta! smile
That degraded of colors prettier you have obtained here. I like! smile
Yes, very effective in setting the well focused foreground flowers against the colors of the background.
