Now, that the weather is getting better, the fields are getting covered with colourful flowers. Here we have some French lavender, in a field near Montejuntos, not far from the Alqueva, one of the biggest artificial lakes in Europe.

simple but most enjoyable picture with the lovely flowers. The foreground in sharp focus has brought out the details with excellent clarity. The fencing wires add a special point of interest. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day.

Ha ha, your March looks like a June in my region, for example. I like your choice of the low point of view, attractive summer colors, perfect sharpness on the FG and very nice blured landscape on the BG. I think, I want to read about the Alqueva more.

A very nice view from a country where spring has advanced dramatically longer than where I live. We had heavy snowfall yesterday and this night the temperature is expected to be far below zero. The flowers are pretty and the scenery in the background looks beautiful. It looks more like summer to me. The fence has created a nice pattern that gives a fine rhythm to the composition.

Lovely control over DOF in this with the lavender foreground and the vibrant lively greens of the back. The fence makes an interesting contrast to the delicate flowers too. So nice to see the world come back to life once again.
All the best

I like very much the colours and the chromatic contrasts of this photo. A wonderful feel of spring with the beautiful flowers against a delightfully green landscape. The grid of wire is a very intriguing feature that gives a special character to your image. There's excellent sharpness in the foreground and the background is deep, comprehensible and inviting. I absolutely love the light and colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

One of my favourite flowers ! The lavender is most attractive and contrasts beautifully with the green backdrop. The fencing wires make a nice window over the field and trees. A lovely spring shot with nice vibrant colours.

You know, I don't think too many people would have taken this shot because of the wire fencing, but it just goes to show what a photographic eye can produce. It doesn't naturally fit the scene, but it's also effective in graphic appeal...and I like how it makes an impact without losing focus on the main subjects. A very interesting mix of elements, and a smart realization of creative vision. Bright, colorful and full of Spring time anticipation...right around the corner. :) Enjoy the new day ahead. All the best.

Hello Ana - Good choice of DOF accentuates the distance between the lavender in the FG and the green backdrop. The purple-blues look fresh and lovely contrasted with the soft greens. The sunny weather is nicely conveyed in this pretty springtime shot.

una foto semplice, bella ed efficace.
Sembra quasi di sentirne il profumo.
Stavo osservando anche gli olivi dello sfondo, somigliano molto ai miei.

Precioso detalle de estos campos, con el primer plano de estas bonitas flores de Lavanda, en el valle del Tietar, donde yo tengo una casa hay grandes extensiones de la misma, con lo cual esta preciosa imagen me resulta muy familiar.
Que tengas un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.

I am not expecting much of this from the thumb but what a lovely surprise when it opens keep on wanting to touch the nature beauty! Your use of selective focus is very attractive with splashes of purple amongst green is marvelous! Beautiful, Congrats

Olá querida Ana,
Siento mi retraso en mi comentario, yo no soy muy rapida en mis respuestas, pues no domino los idiomas y al hacerlos con el traductor voy despacio y se me acumula el trabajo.
La toma que nos presentas es preciosa y muy bien captada, me gusta como has jugado con el enfoque en las flores de lavanda en primer plano, que parecen estar en 3D y que no las podamos coger porque la valla metálica nos cierra el acceso a ellas.
El fondo borroso da sensación de profundidad y nos lleva la mirada a las llamativas flores.
Una toma muy limpia con unos lindos colores.
Parece mentira que una imagen tan sencilla, pueda ser tan bonita y moostrarnos tan bien la belleza de la primavera.
Te felicito por tu trabajo es lindísimo.
Un abrazo, y te deseamos un buen fin de semana.

A nice shot combining the beauty of the flowers and meadow with the somewhat more harsh fence dividing the shot. The DOF seems to start and stop right at the fence's limits, which makes for an interesting effect. Beautiful bright colors... I'm looking forward to spring here, but it has been a long time developing, and more snow to come on Wednesday!
Thanks for this preview....
