Can't help the pollen staining Ronnie.
A ''natural'' image.
Good colours and well presented too.
Excellent shot.

Not an easy subject Ronnie, because of all the whites, but I don't think you've done badly with it mate....Next time try dropping the exposure by half a stop or so and see if that keeps the burned out areas under control a little better......Still a very worthy image of an upload though mate....

Excellent image & work.

You have done this little beauty proud Ronnie. The pollen can drive you nuts with all the spring bulbs. I keep a little paint brush with me to try and brush it off. Not always easy though Smile

Super photo of a challenging subject Ronnie

I think you've done very well with this, Ronnie, getting just enough detail in the centre of the little flower, and the pollen staining is only nature, so is not a problem, nothing in nature is perfect. Carol

A beautiful image, the detail is impressive as, has been commented on above, not the easiest subject - I stand corrected on the species, we learn something everyday and thanks for putting me right on that .............. you should be really proud of this one!
Hi Ronnie, this is an excellent image, excellent details in the shot throughout the frame.. Excellent shot as ususual with the black background.

I think it is very special, you have been able to capture this beautiful flower that has a glissen on the petals
and those green tips are enchanting. Superb……..Jocelia

Wonderful super-close-up image, Ronnie! Texture, colours and details all 1st class. I love these flowers and have some quietly expanding clumps of them in my garden. Might post a couple of shots one day soon, but none as close as this!

A wonderful shot Ronnie, getting the exposure and detail right on snow drops is hard enough so this must have been even harder.. well done.
