un soggetto molto diverso dai tuoi soliti, ma molto bello e di grande qualità.
La cosa che colpisce immediatamente è la luce splendida, ma è bellissimo anche il gioco della messa a fuoco.

What a beautiful image! The diagonal out-of-focus "twig" in the background is distracting but can easily be rectified. It can also do with slight cropping off at the bottom but a very lovely natural image. What a pleasure to view! Best wishes.

What a pretty, cheerful shot my friend, Takero.
Lovely light and color, wonderful detail, excellent DOF with that lovely blurred BG. It won't be long now, will it? Soon the cold and snow. But this pretty shot will remind us of what will follow. Many thanks and warmest regards,

Here in Flemish Belgium find we the same flowers.
I am a very great of flowers fan, flowers are a pleasant subject.
You works with a lovely blurred background.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Beautiful depth, a really nice idea to focus on these delicate flowers, and although blurred we still get a great sense of the style of the building behind, and therefore of this place. Lovely shot, with nature and architecture. Thanks as always

Hello dear Takero,
a very delightful sight, I love the delicious natural colours and the way they are vivified by the light. You've captured very fine textures and details, the delicate flowers and the subtle greenery are so attractive. I also like very much the colours and the significant information included in the blurry background. Your picture is complete, elegant and a joy to look at. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,
