Realmente, elegante, delicada e complexa ao mesmo tempo. Voc conseguiu exprimir muitos detalhes da flor e ao mesmo tempo a colocou com o uma jia sobre uma caixa de veludo negro. Adorei esse trabalho.

Dear cousiewithgreenbroom. This is perfect. Lighting is fantastic. Great composition. I can see the petals in the reflection even. I have calibrated all the monitors here with a Spyder. Big difference. Well worth the money in photography. Favourite for sure. 10/10 Hugs and kisses. Keith:) :)

Dear RG, my monitor shows no reflection. Sorry about that. I have calibrated it twice since I got it. Older CRT, I will see if I can find the reflection to fully appreciate this. Us GG's are sometimes visually challenged. Be well my fine friend, GG

Hi GG,
Not sure if your monitor is allowing you to view the reflection of the flower on the water but it is there and that's why I didn't crop the image.
Hope you are having a good day. Thank you for your comment as always :)
Be well,
Julie.

Nice POV and capture. The tones and focus are really nice on this. I might crop some of the lower out to accent the flower a little more, but that is my opinion. Have a great week! Be well, Stan

great shot Julie, good exposure so the flower appears into the emptiness of the black background, very nice into that sepia tone and grainy texture.

Very nicely done Julie. The best thing about this image is the empty black space. Gives a minimalist approach to the image.

Hi Paul,
You know how to leave me speechless with your comments and trust me that is a hard thing to do :)

I am glad you could see the reflection of the flower, I think that all depends on one's monitor setting and yours seems to be well calibrated.

Thank you so much for always having wonderful things to say Paul. You bring a smile to my face each and every time I read them :)

Big hug and kiss,
Julie.

Dear Julie, I think it is a very special expression of a flower. With this type of light you expect the flower closed.
Further the lower part of the picture is not fully black and reveals something of a mystery shadow? or reflection?

Normal exposure of a flower never shows that great detail as you show here. You did by post darkening and further enhancing the contrasts present in a digital recording and forcing greater perception of the human eye as it is more sensitive for variations in gray scale.
Henry Fielding would never have explained an elegant taste and an excellent heart probably by just these factors :-)
hugs and kisses, Paul

This is a beautiful (I mean elegant) image, Julie. I especially like the slight grain on the petals and the way it contrasts with the smooth blackness of the negative space.
Regards, Gary

Nice, sort of mysterious with the large dark area. The details on the flower are wonderfully well done.
