I never pay too much attention to croci, but this is such an outstanding capture of them that I see how stunningly beautiful they are from the inside out! Wonderful, excellent photograph!

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes

Just love this Hilde. I've never really examined this flower that closely before, mainly because it's still pretty cold by the time they appear around here....great composition and I love the way you handled the presentation.

Stunning. I love also how you have chosen to frame this. Not alot of thick and thin lines to distract from the image. Just the plain black background so that all you see is the flower.

Prachtig Hilde de crocussen. Het is de voorbode van de lente en daar kijken we weer naar uit. Ik heb ze ook gefotografeerd.

Don't miss the beautiful colours of the rainbow while you're looking for the pot of gold at the end of it.

Oh, this is really lovely work Hilde. A great DOF, something I'm always struggling to obtain, and the contrasting background makes the flowers almost stand out like 3D! Great lighting too, showing off the rich purple.
Nice to see someone else has crocuses out in flower - I thought me and Kristof were the only ones;o) Beaoootiful:)

This mail is a natural product. The slight variation in spelling and grammar enhance its individual character and beauty and in no way are tobe considered flaws or defects.

Reg told me once that by using an odd number of subjects instead of even you can create a dynamic that really adds life to your photo. I guess this magnificent photo really proves it. Amazing display of vivid colors - surely the best of all flower captures in new images gallery!

Wow Hilde,

I love this close-up of these beautiful flowers. I saw it then made it my desktop wallpaper all in two clicks of my mouse. Awesome work.

Use your imagination when photographing, that's when you know your subject is in focus.

The color blending in the leaves really adds to your capture along with the contrast of black and purple. Great work. faved
