Only a snowdrop, but it is good to finally see them out!

Lovely photo John! Congratulations (And good choice for your avatar!)

I agree, the signs of new life at spring are always welcome. The colours (green, white and brown) blend so well together in this composition, I feel!

Just a few minor points (hope you don't mind!)... maybe I would like to see also what it looks like with the 2nd / background snow drop white part NOT behind the white part of the snow drop in the foreground (if that makes sense)... as maybe the foreground snowdrop will stand out even more! And 2nd, maybe just slightly less exposure as maybe the right petal of the foreground snow drop is just ever so slightly "hot" (too bright / too white).

But I'm just nit picking! If I would have made this photo I would have been very happy! Well done! Please keep posting!

Paul

Spring is really coming! Yahooooo! Good to see a shot of this tiny flower.

I was thinking some of the same things as the previous poster regarding composition and exposure - I hope you have more opportunities to capture these little delights and share them with us!

Thanks for the comments guys!

Paul: I agree with you on both points, unfortunately the things grow in clumps which may make finding an isolated specimen tricky. Your right about the over-exposure too: although this one was already compensated by -2 stops and that was as far as I took the bracketing at the time, going further tends to make other parts of the flower rather grey-looking It's supposed to warm up this week so maybe I'll get some more opportunities - if it ever stops raining!

John.

John,

Thanks for not being offended... I didn't mean to distract from the fact that you made a great photo!

Hope you'll be able to find a spell in the rain to capture another attempt!

well done!

Paul
