As a great fan and photographer of umbellifers I have to say this is one of the best images I have seen. Gorgeous.
An unusual perspective, nicely done.
Great details and fantastic colors.
I loved it.
Great exposure and pretty nice motive
Wonderful details and tones : )
Very nice work!
Beautiful detail in this imaginative composition, Janina!
One very nice exposure!
Hey artsy, I believe this is my favourite shot of yours! Honestly, I was holding my breath while the page was loading! The magic is in the details… Stunning!
A sharp point and beautiful composition!
great shot, and a wonderful depth of field
A nice “umbrella” you saw there. Aren’t seedpods fun to play with?
Yes, they are, steve; in fact, I stole some more dead agapanthus flowers a few months ago from a public planting (I didn’t think anyone would mind….), and every now and then, I take photos of them, when I feel the urge for some macro work. They even have some cobwebs…They reside in my kitchen in a pot.
I like it!
very special and perfect result here, i like very much details and and sense of minimalism, point of focus is perfect too, many compliments
Ciao, fabrizio, e grazie!
nicely done … a lovely seedpod still life!
I’m sure I’ve said this before, but it never fails to amaze me how photographers can make art from the most unlikely of subjects – and this no exception – inspired vision.
LOL…george, I always appreciate your considered comments; however, ‘inspired vision’ is going a bit too far, in my view!
In fact, the more that I look at this pic, I can see it would be improved 100% if I cropped it half an inch off the top, so that all we see is the seedpod and the other one on the right. Would make for a much cleaner, more focused-on-the-subject, minimalist look. Agree?
For ‘inspired vision’ come back on feb20 to see Flapjack two.
Merci beaucoup, Céline!
Such a sweet little study – the plant would be proud !
This is utterly stunning!!!
A beautiful image Janina with beautiful depth of field
Amazing, i love it, great picture Janina !
Not only is this a lovely seedpod, but the world around it is very nice, too.
