Bonjour, cher Alexander,
Très belle perspective de ces pots garnis de fleurs retombantes.
L'effet est réalisé avec maestria.

Excellent use of repetition with the urns & superb use of diminishing linear perspective & vanishing point. The shallow dof works well here. Tfs!

I like this delightful picture; what an elegant and eye-pleasing combination of composition and cropping. You used a shallow DOF so very effectively and gave us just enough detail in the background to create a sense of place. It was a good idea to include the seated woman, making a small theme of femininity with the sculpted figures on the large bowls.

How many female figures can you see here?
2 on the urns + 1 on the left on a seat + possibly 2 bottom right = 5? :)
Good use of perspective and differential focus. I don't usually like large areas of bokeh, but I think you have it just about right here. More than half the image is in focus and the oof parts are still clear enough to see the context.

Fantastic photo, great idea and realisation! Great framing and composition, amazing perspective and nice, "shallow" depth of field! Flawless light management, fantastic colours!

Nice perspective with fading dof, the oversll grey dominant helps the flowers shine
have a nice day JY

I love this one. Beautiful pink tones contrast with grey, everything is so neat and on the right place. I wish I were reading the on the bench myself smelling those gerania.

I like the composition with the strict and efficient framing, the clever use of DOF that works so well on this row of flowers and the discrete reminder of the color with the object on the woman's knees. The matching between greys and pinks is also excellent.
Charming, almost filled with nostalgia, a delicate vison. Congratulations.

A very pleasant and beautiful photograph!
Those vases and those colorful flowers look wonderful in this image!
Sharp fg and blurred bg was a great idea and worked perfectly in this attractive composition!
Exposure, colors, black&white frame are all excellent too!
TFS - congratulations!

Cette photo est très réussie avec la perspective fleurie qui aboutit à la femme dans le lointain. Les couleurs des fleurs sont mises en valeur par les tons plus ternes du reste de la composition.
