Wood Anemoon

St. Flour L’Etang| Auvergne, France

Wood-Anemone_4b

Its March and today we had snowstorms as if we are in the middle of Winter. Normally I would already cowl on the flour to look at the first flower buds or even the very first flowers. This image is from last April (2012), lets hope Spring will arrive soon …..

Some feedback so far:

  • nice colour pallette … an overall outsanding dreamy effect…nicely done.
  • Pretty wide-open look, nice textured background, lovely foliage.
    I’ll think spring for you! We just had 6 inches of snow, but it’s melted now.
  • Very nice.We are just getting Spring-like here in the Southeast
  • Fantastic soft color and light , sweet image
  • Somehow I missed this one! Congratulations on EP! The neutral tones in the BG with hints of grass is lovely & I like the way the flower is just peeking out!
  • A beautiful representation of this spring beauty – you had me all excited for a moment until I read this was from last year. It’s the same over here, snow all week, and now rain – spring seems to have gone missing this year

Snow Waves

Puy de Chabane | Auvergne, France

Some feedback so far:

  • Simple, elegant and beautiful!
  • Very nice layer shot.
  • I think I would prefer to crop this vertically where the foot prints start and take you away from the bottom of the photo… but I think I have a vertical fetish lol.
  • Really beautiful. I like the layers and light, but the tracks on the foreground hill make it for me.
  • Beautiful!…esp like the sliver of light on the ridge.

Autumn wind -Auvergne Toscany

Late afternoon – early evening, sun going down, wind blowing in the valley.
Castle of Montmorin near Billom | Auvergne | France

Some feedback :

– Very nice and serene.

– Stunning view Kristel — lovely foreground, with the idyllic castle on the hill in the background! I would be tempted to give midtone contrast a little nudge. A terrific scene!

– Wonderful photo Kristel! and a fantastic and well deserved IOW!!!

I just found out that my image: Wood Sorrel,  has been  selected as ‘Image Of the Week’ at Naturescapes.Net (a photography forum) in the category, Flora and Macro.

Some feedback:

– Very painterly, looks a bit like a fantasy forest.

– Very cool. Excellent use of blurring in both foreground and background in a way that enhances the subject rather than distracting from it.

– I enjoy this very much. A dream-like work of art.

– Delicate, ethereal and just beautiful! This is gorgeous Kristel!
– Very much out of a fairy tale, Kristel. Lovely in all respects.
