Armand, ' tilted '? What tilt?

Seriously, though, my carelessness..no excuse.

Thanks and best regards.

Oscar, tell it to cheer up: at least it still has all its doors - just.

Yank enough sliders in Snapseed and a sow's ear becomes ..., well..., I don't know, a sow's ear?

(Yes, I know. I really need to go out and take some decent peoplepictures again, pronto!)

Nice one; still trying to work out the left-hand flowers: convinced that I see a pair of little jockeys - okay, really little jockeys - up at the top of the bunch. Or Giacometti ones.

Really nice one; the drops are so delicate agaist the other textures.

Not critique: I pulled the picture up a bit and realised you have actually got two shots in one: as it is, with the snow/mountain location, and then much tighter where you lose the sense of the location but make more of the flower.

I really can't decide which one I like more.

Gonna blame my equipment: D700 with 8/500 cat.

Shame not all longer lenses come with a revolving tripod collar.

Thank you Rob. The picture was taken at F/5.6 with the Zeiss Distagon 25 F/2.8 (max magnification ratio 1:2,32). It is a stack of two shots, the first one with the focus point on a water drop (or, more probably, on a stamen/anther) and the second one with the focus point on the violet tepal. I merged the stem of the first one with the flower of the second one.
I have also this single shot picture taken at F/11 (focus point on a stamen) that gives a more definite background and a less isolated flower (My sister prefers it).

P.S. A very cold and rainy/snowy may in Italy this year.

I think I like the first one better; the sense of softness in the background is stronger, yet still tells me about location.

Here in Mallorca it has been strange weather too. I put away the electric heaters last week, but still have the electric blanket on for an hour before going to bed. Very little rain this year, but the wind seems to be cold and there's a lot of it: the car is salt-encrusted and at least it gives me an excuse not to wash it until the weather changes.

That said, it's been sunny for the past few days, hot in the sun and cold in the shade. The only people in shorts are tourists, who probably brought nothing else!

You can always tell a native of Morocco apart from the tourist, the native wears at least two more layers.

It was gonna be a Hasselfake, but I can't remember where I put the border. Maybe Mr Trump built over it?
