Default Red Geranium - Fz35

Please correct me if i am wrong with the name of the flower, the translation gives me "mallow". Its shot in my summerhouse. Also let me know what you think of my watermark

That's actually a pelargonium, but commonly called geranium. A true geranium is a totally different plant, but somehow that name stuck to this plant.

Beautiful image.

I agree with other friends, very nice shots Geoper!! The watermark is original, but in some particular images, the black band may be to hide some important details.

Good shot. As for the watermark, I kinda like it. My suggestion is not to have the black bar run solidly across the entire image but start solid on the left where the little squares are and gradually go transparent until it reaches the right end of the photo. It would not be as strong and invasive that way. As is, it's a bit distracting. Just a suggestion.

It is a Hydrangea but I've never seen one this red. Usually they are blue, pink and I've seen some white but also rare.

It depends on the soil. mine are a deep pink but not as red as that one but i have seen them that colour. I believe it is the acidity in the soil that determins the colour.
