One of the most important things when planning the trip is the time of a journey. There are many elements to consider - the weather, number of tourists, plants, festivals, water in waterfalls and so on. As an old person I have this comfort that I can go whenever I want. On the other hand, I can't go everywhere in the same best time.
I think that middle of May was the best time to visit Vienna and Spain. Look at this view of Volksgarten, with all the roses. The number of them is overwhelming there.
We admire photos of endless fields of tulips in Holland, poppies in Castelluccio or canola in many places, I hope you will like also these roses from Vienna.

Your composition is nice here using the flowers to fill the foreground a and lead the eye to the building. The lighting and colors are outstanding as is the sharpness and detail.

Great light than has masterfully managed to capture with your camera. Lovely colors and contrast very well done. Nice frame full of color and detail. Good sharpness also ... a very complete picture, congratulations.

Quels beaux jardins.Le point de vue, comme caché derrière cet immense bosquet de fleurs est magnifique et donne beaucoup de profondeur à la composition. Les couleurs sont joliment saturées.

une prise de vue de très bas, sans doute la plus efficace pour donner à ce parterre de fleur bien coloré;, le premier rôle. Une profondeur de champ bien dosée permet d'obtenir du détail à l'avant plan comme à l'arrière plan.
Malgré le lourd soleil, beaucoup de fraîcheur.

Good view of the large group of yellow roses up close, with the green park background, path of rose trees on the right, then the distant Vienna architecture.
I agree in timing of journeys, not only for the weather and Nature's produce, but also to avoid crowds, if possible. I prefer visiting our National Parks outside of summer time. And condo rentals at resorts are cheaper in the 'off season'. By going to ski resorts in summer outside of snow season, rates are cheaper. Going to popular places in late autumn and winter, and early spring, reduces the costs and the crowds. And a bonus for photography with more chances of dramatic weather.
Thanks for sharing,

Good evening Malgo,
Bright day you had in Vienna, we were there on almost same time in 2007, and it was a grey cloudy day.
The garden is charming with the decorating flowers, people / tourists added life to the impressive palace and the green lawn we see.
Thanks for the note written, best regards,

Neither tulips nor sunflowers, but these roses have just as great impact seen from this low POV as those more often featured on TE. This time you planned your jurney well, but how about going to Helsinki in the middle of winter? :-). The fine weather this time gave you great colours and you also found a good view towards that building, whatever it is.

the rose garden in the FG is most attractive and makes a fine base that leads nicely toward the very impressive building behind,the clarity is impeccable.
Kind regards Les.

il tuo pov ci presenta una distesa di fiori immensa, sento anche l'odore. ..
Molto bello questo giardino, mi piace la presenza delle persone, lo rende vivo, bellissima l'architettura e le due torri della cattedrale che spuntano all'orizzonte.

Lovely POV, a fine capture of this park that ends with the beautiful building. A perfect image to see anywhere you go.

wyglada to jak holenderskie krolestwo roz. Fajne ujecie tutaj i do kompletu w WS. Milo sie spaceruje w takich miejscach. Z pewnoscia podobne sa przy Schoenbrunn. Podoba mi sie tutaj.

Beautiful landscape especially the flowers, I would be one of those tourists. I like the lighting and it has good details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
Yes, there are still a lot of wild horses and wild donkeys in the western U.S. with some within 15-minute drive from Las Vegas.

Wspaniale morze kwiatow! Zolty to moj ulubiony kolor roz, wiele zoltych odmian ma niepowtarzalny zapach.
Zgadzam sie z toba, ze to, w jakiej porze roku, w ktorym miesiacu, a czasem nawet w ktorym tygodniu podrozujemy ma wielki wplyw na to, co zobaczymy i jak odbierzemy dane miejsce.

Your note says it all, why do you think I chose the September?? :) What a beautiful, and smart way to show the Volksgarten...this really does put the emphasis on the roses and time of year. Too bad this isn't a scratch n' sniff kind of picture, I'm sure the aroma's and atmosphere is pure delight, The varying shades of greens and yellows are ideal, and the wide open sky and sunlight make everything even more appealing to the senses. Hope it's just the same in a month or so, yeah? :) Detail, clarity and an easy to follow composition make this all so very enticing. Hope you're having a nice weekend. Take care.

Wonderful picture, amazing DOF. I tried to make pictures like this but the background is always blurred.
