Fabulous set of flowers. The yellow colour with a touch of orange looks so fresh and refreshing. The dew drops enhances the beauty. Very sharp and good POV and DOF. The BG looks superb and contrasting. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Soft light gave very pleasing colors here. Nice contrast and isolation from background. Well done. Regards,

Hi Niek and very nice to see you back!
We've missed you around here :)
This is a lovely opening photo for your future travelogue (which i'm much looking forward to)!
The shallow DOF here is impressive and it really isolates these miniature flowers from the BG.
All the tones are terrific thanks to the exact exposure management and all the details are razor-sharp.
Can't wait to see more :)
Bravo and TFS

Hele mooie sleutelbloemen, ze zien er zo fris uit en door de focus lijken ze echt zo uit het plaatje te komen. Fijne, vrolijke kleuren.

I'm glad you are back and had a good time and good weather. (It's pouring rain here) One could hardly ask for a more springtime color than this sunny yellow. It's a cheerful composition of these little dew covered flowers. I love the OOF background.

I like how you managed to get this image with a very good POV.
The image is so clean and clear...the bright yellow stands out the best of this tiny flowers.
I like so much the contrast witht he dark green tones at the back, and the DOF used to get this nicely blurred background.
I will look forward to catch the full story of the travelogue.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Some delicate and beautiful looking flowers. Quality light and an excellent exposure. Colors and detail look great. The well controled DOF has a pleasing OOF backround here.

This delicate flower is very well captured!
Silky soft and fragile, it really stands out nicely with attractive colours!
I'm happy to see spring is more advanced in other parts of Europe...

Hi Niek ,
very nice shot from this yellow flowers.
vivid colours and nice sharpness.
thanks for sharing
Lovely macro of the Cowslips. They bring back memories of my childhood when fields were covered with these lovely flowers. We still have them but as there are less grazing animals now they are less common. Beautiful composition and I love the colours against the dark background.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
ik heb nog aan je gedacht. Man, wat warm. Goed om vroeg op pad te gaan. Deze Gulden sleutelbloem is zeker niet algemeen. In tegenstelling tot de meer algemene slanke sleutelbloem moet je deze echt zoeken. Ben erg benieuwd naar je andere foto's. Bij deze foto vind ik het mooi dat je zacht tegenlicht gebruikt hebt. Benadrukt de bloemen.
oh ja, zou je de link naar de site met photoshop tutorials nog willen doormailen?

Welcome back! lovely spring shot to start you travel photos. Lovely glowing colours, nice artistic DOF and great POV. The dew on the flowers is a nice touch, catching the light

looks like you had a successful photo trip, and the weather seemed to have been co-operating. Amazing how far in advance your Nature is compared to ours.. crocuses are just blooming.
Wonderful shot of this fragile little beauty, I love the DOF, it really focuses on the flower heads. Gorgeous colors and a wonderful sharpness.

well this is just beautiful. Very delicately presented, which befits the subject. Colour, sharpness and composition are shown perfectly. Great shot for a handheld too! Sounds like you had a great trip, nice to see you back.
All the best,

Very beautifully captured Niek. The flowers are quite soft, but tastefully / artistically so. The colours and lighting are good, especially with the BG.

Very nice, soft and gentle shot. Excellent translucing light. Nicely controlled shallow DOF.
Very nice job.
Best greetings and TFS!

I hadn't realised I had missed so many! I love the colours on this one and the fact taht you can see some of the dew droplets. The colours are great (sorry already mentioned that one), and the DOF really good. The sharpness is excellent.
As a ongoing learning tool - I find the almost horizontal stem behind and the 'blob' to the right of the lower flower a touch distracting... but its only a minor nit...
